Hello,

New to the forum.  I have a 1988 American skier competition ski boat that I'm working on to get it back in the water.  Does anyone know where I can obtain a fender well that comes with the inside carpeted running board.  One of my fender wells is damaged and needs to be replaced.  Also, I need to replace my carburetor (four barrel) but unsure of which type/model to purchase.  The motor is a 8 cylinder Indmar, serial number IF-882199.  I also need to know if its is either a Windsor or Cleveland. 

Any help here would be greatly appreciated,
Regards,
Kenny , Texas

fender boards were made from 1/2" pressure treated plywood, you will need to re-create your own, each one was originally made to fit. The slant back steel fenders we have.
OEM carb was a Holley 600cfm 4 bbl. Marine carb., National carbureator in Jacksonville Fl. is a good source for rebuilding or buying new. We used Indmar Fords (std) & optional Chevys, the Fords were all "Windsor" blocks.

Hi Ron,

Thanks for the information, much appreciated.  I came across this fender that is the size of my existing fender with a fender pad. I think this will work as a replacement but need to call the company to find out what that fender pad is made of first.

My only question with that when we built these trailers we "adjusted" the fenders to the chassis, then cut and fit the fender boards. We tried pre-cutting fender boards to a pattern but there were too many variables so we went back to cutting boards to fit each one. Fender looks like the one we carry.
