Hello everyone. Newbie here. I purchased a 1992 180 TF recently. Motor runs very well but there was a lot of cobbling over the years. Seats and carpet still look new. Fiberglass is very faded with lots of hairline cracks-not stress cracks. Fixable but will take some time to correct. From 20 foot away the boat looks awesome. I will post up some pics soon. Windshield was crazed and cracked but I found a place that makes them UPD Plastics. Also the switch panel was very faded and half the switches don't work. The old switch panel had faded label tape you could barely read. I am using these folks to fabricate a new switch plate, switches and breakers. New Wire Marine.com The new switch panel will have etched switches. Bow and stern navigation lights were missing in action and the socket plugs did not work. Got new lights and plugs and have working lights again. Throttle is loose but that is an easy fix. I am a little confused as to how the live well is suppose to work. I have searched the web and found zero info regarding the 180 TF. There is no aerator pump in the back just a bilge pump that was not hooked up. There is a valve by the throttle that appears to be how the well gets filled and drained. It looks like there might be a pump right behind the seats in front of the live well which might be the aerator. I will post some pictures soon. Looking forward to interacting. Located in East Texas.

I have that same boat. It fishes good and is the right size for me. I am in the middle of replacing the transom. I have a post about it. Enjoy the new rig!

Almost forgot the bilge and aerator pumps are in the back between your batteries. There may be panel that covers them up. Couple of screws and it comes off. There is also the shut off valve for the live well fill.
