    Obviously boating,fishing(Striper when I get the chance) and atving. Owned it for 14 years and I restored this 1987 225xlc last year and I love it all over again.
  1. We don't all have asimuth pods and genny issues some of us have cracking and fading seat problems and wood rot (but no boat payments) lets have a page for the geriatric chappy's.
  2. I restored my 87 225 xlc(the little brother to the 235) 2 years ago after owning it since 1998 and I love it all over again. as to restoring these things they are rare but marine salvage yards and craigslist have worked for me. M&M marine salvage in Tilton NH has some 80's parts but it looks like it's a bit of a drive from NC, good luck!
  3. Don't know about a 97 but an 87 the drain plug is the dip stick tube. It has threads on it to connect to a pump. Its real hard to get to the bottom of motors.
