Broom Ski Pole and mounting points

Hi All, I was wondering if anyone on here can shed any light on the correct mounting points for a ski pole, or indeed if you have one for sale, for my 1980 Broom Saturn. She was clearly fitted with one at some point (I was told the original owner bought and used her as a ski boat on Lake Windermere)...

Re: Broom saturn deluxe

Hi Chris, looks very nice. Do you have more pics and a figure in mind.
I have a lovely Saturn already, but a friend who rather likes mine is interested in buying one.

Cheers.

Re: 1980 Broom Saturn - maximum engine size??

Thanks again for your input Rapier, but I’ve now found what I was really after. I’ve just bought an early 80’s Mercury 75 Thunderbolt that’s had a mainly freshwater life and came complete with the control box and all the power trim and tilt bits in full working order. I will write a post about it al...

Hi Rapier, do you know if the 50 has electric start and power trim and tilt please. If so what kind of price it’s up for?

Thanks for all your input so far, much appreciated!

Re: 1980 Broom Saturn - maximum engine size??

Many thanks for the reply Rapier. I stumbled across an old brochure shot on here after my post and found the 65hp recommendation. To the best of my knowledge the transom is in good condition through out. I would be happy with a late 70’s/early 80’s 60hp Mercury, but with power trim and tilt. However...

1980 Broom Saturn - maximum engine size??

Hi Guys, I’ve just bought a 1980 Broom Saturn. I bought her based on the overall condition of the boat. However, the engine fitted is a 90’s/00’s era Honda 4 stroke 40hp. While this I’m sure suits many and is a fine engine it just doesn’t look right on her and I can’t get over that! I would like to ...
