Looks like they went to through hub in about 1990. I just did a bit of looking and you can still find parts in the US. Might be a good place for impellers etc.

I had a 14' speedboat with a Force 70 on it, black with a blue stripe.

It was not good...

You're just throwing good money after bad around here on these old crappers too. You don't fix a Force anymore.

If I was looking for tact and diplomacy I certainly wouldn't be asking this merry band of Ribsters now would I?

Thanks again for all the advise and info.
Looks like our family Easter might have a few interesting conversation starters.

"Now little sister, about that boat ........."
