Hi, I have a 16ft sidewinder, blue with silver metalflake. Mine is also a mercruiser 140 inboard/outboard like yours. I'm not sure of the model of yours though. VXL? anyone? maybe a trihull or bowrider? post some pictures of your boat if you have them. if you need help just ask. I have lot's of info on the mercruiser 140. In fact i'm getting ready to drop in a freshly rebuilt and bored 140 this spring so I may end up with extra parts if interested.

According to the title it's a 73 model TRI 10. The reading I
have done so far it looks like it is a XL. Looks exactly like the
picture posted by SidewindersRCool except for the color:

http://sidewinder-boats.com/portal/w...read.php?t=232

It has a 165hp I/O and is all orginal. A very bright orange is the
color which gained it the nick of Orange Weinne. Got the name
before I bought it in 1986 and has stuck. No matter what I tried
everyone kept calling it that so I have learned to accept it. :-)

I do have question about that being accurate. According to
the man I bought it from the hull was a 72 and the engine
was a 73. So until I find out otherwise I will continue with the
73 date.

Currently it is in bad need of restoration. Wife suffered a stroke
6 years ago and could no longer get in and out of the boat. So
it has been sitting under cover for the last 6 years unused.
Up until then all summer long every weekend we were out on the
river having fun. The Weinne was a real trooper. Never any major
problems the whole time it was in use. Ski was my passion with
this boat and it never failed me. I could pull two on skies and three
people on board with little or no effort.

Now that I have the time I plan on restoring it. That and finding
this site of other sidewinder fans I hope to gain some usful knowledge
of how best to go about it.
