Default Deal on 45ss

Too big for me, but tempting. Just thought I would share the link.

Yeah, I've seen this boat posted a while ago. Price is steadily going down. These pics look a LOT better then the other ones I saw of it.
Engine compartment looked pretty rough in other pics I saw. So did the washroom...

But am curious to know more deets on it too?

Did it sink? Motors looked pretty rusty and salt covered in other pics...

Noticed the lack of engine pictures in this posting, and have read and heard the nightmares of salt water boats.

We have salt water cars up here in Ny, after they are more than 3 years old you need a torch to take off anything. Can't imagine dealing with that in the bilge.

Still, all things being said. 3 blue engines, drives, exhaust, genny, a/c and a aluminum trailer for 40k asking?

Oh yeah...the AC unit looked to be in pieces in the other pics I saw of it too so I dont think it works.

The pics of motors didnt look like they were rebuilt 35 hours ago as the ad stated.

But I hear ya on the price.

Kills me, this is twice this year I have seen this, just on Sonics but I am sure it happens all the time.

The original broker emailed me that the boat was sold two weeks ago, NBD.

Now it is listed here for....get this......32k more http://www.boattrader.com/listing/19...45ss-100247877 Can't blame guys for trying I guess. But there is prob a reason for it being a $39k boat, now the next guy will have $70k plus into it.
