Hi Anthony,
Welcome to The Board. Yes, your boat appears to be the same as Aarons. Perhaps you guys can start a Club? Somewhere in The Board, I posted some pics of yet another one of those boats which I came across in the Southern suburbs of Sydney (no motor) about two years ago. No, it wasn't yours.

Anyway, I have a very good friend who use to race one of those McCullochs on a 12 ft Haines in the mid 1960's. Believe it or not, this friend who I met in 1973 is now 71 years old and still racing boats. He has a collection of over 70 outboards. I'm very confident he can steer you in the right direction when you are in need of parts. Your water pump impeller is the first thing which should be changed, before you launch her.

Let me know if I can assist.

MERCMAN.

Hi Aaron,

I'm not going to be very helpful but I have the same type of boat!! 

I also don't know what it is and have no history. It has the same steering system. 

Mine is a bit different as it has a central rib between the back to back seats.

I only just purchased my boat in Melbourne.  It is a bit rough but it floats and runs.  Currently cleaning it up with the view to repaint next year.

Cheers,
Anthony

Hi I sand blasted most of the aluminium covers except the gearbox then primed with Epinamel PR250 then  Colourthane PF330 primer filler ( hi build primer ) top coat is Colourthane C Series. The fiberglass cowling was sanded back then just the PF330 and the C series top coat , these are Wattyl 2 pack industrial products I used them on a 40ft yacht I had, for an outboard a bit of over kill  but I was familiar with using them.  The Engine block I just primed then top coated. If you decide to go this way make sure you read the safety sheets and buy the best mask and filters you can. Wattyl trade centre in Springvale helped a lot to colour match the white & Polycromatic blue.

Cheers Mike G

What a fantastic result. I'm very impressed.
Was there any need to sand between primer filler and top coat, or can you spray one on top of the other soon after the primer filler has cured?
I have read about some products where you can do just that!

I really think the blue colour you have chosen, matches the blue of my 1960 10hp 'rude. It will certainly require a paint job as soon as its back together again.

MERCMAN.

Lovely job mate, a credit to you. When are you going to find a Stilletoe?

What sort of paint have you used? It looks great. If my Starflite survives forthcoming repairs, it really needs a repainting too.
