Norm Witte's 1971 Sea Ray SRV-180 Carpe Throttle

 This page features pictures of my 1971 Sea Ray.  It's powered by a 1969 Mercury 1250 125 hp. outboard, professionally rebuilt and refinished by Darrell Van Eck of Classic Mercury Outboards.  Darrell also handled conversion of the motor to power trim and replacement of the boat's transom.  I have upgraded the boat to add new gauges, including a Hummingbird depth meter, hour meter, water pressure meter, and voltage meter.  I have also added a swim ladder to the back.  Upgrades to be completed in the near future will be a stereo system, bilge pump and compass.  If you look carefully, you will see some of the upgrades appear on the boat through the course of the pictures, taken from August 2010 to May 2012.

The following pages provide some additional detail on improvements made to this boat.
