a buddy of mine owned that boat for a number of years before it got trashed and then put up for sale for too much money
hope you got a good deal on it
it was a great boat when it was taken care of and the hulls are bullet proof
boat just needs some TLC to get it bacjk in shape good luck with it
saber is a great boat
If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?
I did get an EXCELLENT deal on this boat! What do you mean as far as "trashed" goes? For the most part, it just needs to be wheeled out and the drivers side seat has a rip in it. Other than that, just a good scrubbing and some elbow grease.Originally Posted by boatme
Well like you said it is in need of some detailing and fixing up
dont know where you are located but the former owner (Back a few owners) ownes a shop that does boat interiors (amongst other things) I am sure he would love to help you out fixing the vinal as well as share all kinds of stories about the boat
Never ceases to amaze me how poorly people treat nice equipment.
Ive looked at so many boats that were left out in the elements full of leaves etc when they could have saved thousands in repairs with a 40$ tarp.. Nice boat ..lets seeit when you get it all shined up
I'm located in Bay City, Michigan. Where is this guy located? There are a couple good vinyl guys here in town but I would like to talk to people who know this boat. Thanks for the input, MIKE.Originally Posted by boatme

That be the guy
I found out that while the boat was sitting at DE Boats some parts were stolen off the engine so they pulled the engine and took it to More Power Engines and had them go through it. I attached the work order of the things they did to it. After the engine was installed the owner picked it up (Dan) and soon after he filed bankruptcy and it was repoed. I guess all the work done to it was an insurance job and Ron, the broker from D & E believes it was all a scam that Dan put together.
I personally don't give a **** what all happened, I'm just glad to know that I have a freshed up motor in a awesome boat that has great potential!!
I was wondering how I could tell what horse power this engine has. I know the basics about engine and components but some of the technical things I really fall short. Also, what HP will my Bravo take? Thanks for any input, MIKE.
