Hello. I'm new. Been lurking a while but finally signed up and have been activated by the admin (Thanks, Keith).

Recently, my family became owners of a 1993 Sport Nautique. 1400 and some hours and still purring and pulling strong. I don't have a decent pic to put up yet. It lives in northern Indiana on Lake James. I'm in Michigan so haven't had as much time to get acquainted with it as I'd like but love it so far.

I'm pretty much in charge of it for the family so I'll probably be picking brains here as issues come up. I've already had some adventures in maintenance which I'll post later if I have the courage to own up to the embarrassing parts.

Seems like a great community here so looking forward to participating some.

Welcome to the site! I'm kinda new as well. Everyone has been very helpful in all my endeavors in rehabbing my '93 SN. Don't be afraid to post questions, even if they seem simple. The guys that have been with the group will be more than happy to share their knowledge about our boats. One members quote is 'Theirs nothing more fun than messing around with boats" and i will agree (so long as it's a correct craft).

Welcome - Best minds for CC related stuff anywhere in the world - If you have an issue someone (Usually the same few experts you will quickly figure out who they are) has the answer you are looking for. With the help of these fine folks I have done things I never thought I could do on my boat.

Welcome Dan! Very nice classic Sport. Where are you in MI?

Did somebody say Hoosier? Noblesville/Fishers guy here. Grew up boating on Geist and Morse. Love staying at Potawatomi when I can. Beautiful park, and lakes. Really starting to get in to the western MI scene. Stayed in Kzoo two nights this week, and toured around the countryside.

As it turns out, I live in Michigan (Grand Rapids) but my family (extended) has had a place for almost 100 years (now a couple places... we're taking over) on Lake James.

So I get down when I can but this summer had not been great time wise.

Our place is within sight of the main beach/ hotel at Pokagon as well as squatter's/urine/put-in bay (the sandbar by the inn has many names).

Next year the boat should have the docking situation more permanent and we won't have to drop it in and pull it back out to use it for a weekend.

I wondered, since there are a lot of Nautiques on the lake if there were reunions there... I could probably make it down for one with enough warning. My cousins/ neighbors have a 1990 Sport Nautique and I can see many classics and quite a few new ones about on any given weekend...

We were pretty surprised as a side note at the well preserved condition of this boat. Hopefully we can keep it up...
