Default P-38 ??

I was doing some Sunday morning shopping and stumbled on this:
http://www.offshoreonly.com/esvon/page-7479.html

I never new this existed. Always liked the P-29. But, 38...


Looks like a clean ride.

Notice in the ad, it has a "MERCERATOR" - is that in reference to the bravo drives??

Is this a "one-off"?

Nice looking boat.

Tim, it sure looks factory. I don't know if it is factory or a re rig, but it looks very well executed. Joe Murray

Looks like a real clean package for the price.

Yeah, it does look factory. If it isn't, it's a helluva one-off job.

Figure, for a $buck and a quarter...hmm
The P-29's I'm seeing are asking $70.
An extra (almost) 10 feet, twins...
Looks like a good deal for someone.

I'm getting close to "pulling the trigger", I just don't have enough friggin' bullets.

yes it is a factory built boat. i asked the owner once about it. VERY cool piece. i think he also said they also made a P-43 as well. there are 2 p-29's running the river up here, cant mis 'em .

The owner is a forum member. He posts mostly in the tech forum. He takes great care of the boat and recently spent a good bit on upgrades. New sea strainers, pressure relief valves, offshore pick-ups, intercoolers etc.

I really like the boat.
