The down size to the Fountain is you really do loose a couple of inches w/it. Niether one is stepped I assume being from the early 90's. As long as they are both in equally good shape you should be good to go.

However I liked 375's answer the best....BUY A CIG!!
OK... Do you know of a 29-foot Cigarette for $40K?

LOL! Yes, the phones in Texas work just fine. I might call them on Monday, but there are a couple of "red flags"...

There was a fire (never a good thing). There are no cockpit shots, so I bet it looks bad.

It has been sitting idle for over 2 years... Dry rot, mold and other damage could have occurred.

One drive is up and the other is down... Fluid leak.

Seller is in Deerfield Beach (FL), boat is in Atlanta (GA).

I would definitely get a survey and still offer "bottom dollar".

Just too many "red flags" to feel comfortable...

I hear you. But for 15k you still have 25k to make it exactly what you want!!

Clay,
That is CashBar (Greg) here on OSO's boat. Send him a PM. I think that he got it back from the FBI or DEA or someone recently after some scumbag broker stole it from him.

you really should consider the 31 Scarab in the classifed. seller sent me some pics and it is GORGEOUS
asking price is a little over 40k but you never know what they will take until you ask. Order a black truck and add silver scarab logo to it in vinyl. Man that would make a nice package.
