    My Sprint was a 1999 207 and it amazes me how similar they are.

    TH Marine for boat parts will be you friend.

    When dealing with your livewells turn switch's off at front and use the driver console switch's or just the front don't mix them.

    Help me out here...the earliest brochure I have on the Sprints that matches yours somewhat are the 286 from 1994. They are rated for 140 to 175 horsepower....it was 18' 3" I noticed yours has a 85 hp Merc on it....can you post a pic from the data plate with the max horsepower rating? Hopefully we can get an idea which sprint you have...the tandem axle is telling me it's bigger than 18' ??

    Definitely more than 18 foot. Looks closer to 20. She needs atleast a 200 on her. Good looking old water sled... congratulations and good luck with your boat

    Just guessing your tank might be under the seats.

    My 207 the gas tank was behind seat.

    Thiers a threat here going into how t get to tank.

    You should change gas line to tank.

    Going back to the capacity plate....should be a yellow sticker with the max load and horsepower rating on it. On my 207 it's located on the left side just forward of the passenger seat. From the looks of the rear of the hull the tank(s) will be in the back. Some have had to cut the lip around the back hatch to get them out. If under the seats, the middle cushion is usually velcroed in and pulling them out exposes the screws holding the seats in. Also on the 207 to gain access to the top of the tank, open the livewell lids and you will see the screws that hold the panel just behind the seats. Remove the screws and lift the panel. Hope this helps.

    Does anyone know what this switch does??? Coming right to left I know it’s power trim, then an on/off switch (witch I have wired up for lights in my rod holder and storage) then the navigation/anchor lights. Then on the far left I have that wired up to manually run my live well and aerator or I can run it on auto (timer)
