I understand... Assuming that the engines and outdrives are in good shape, I pretty sure that I could put ten to fifteen grand into your boat, and have one "sweet ass" ride.

I would not be doing any of the work, so I could run through $15K real quick. But, I have 100% trust in Bob Lloyd at Full Throttle Marine, so I know my money will be well spent.

It's a tough decision. But, it's exciting to "boat shop" knowing that I will be buying something in the next few weeks.

turnkey without a doubt. If you planned on doing the work yourself, it MIGHT be a different story.

Ussually I would say Turnkey. Especially if you have been fallowing my saga. However that boat of Cash bars is a project but one that you should be able to see exactly what you are doing. The problem with mine was that the issues kept going, all the way to the front

I have Cashbars boat at my shop and if i didn't have so many other projects going on I would do buy it and finish it for the summer. It does need glass and interior work but that is it. Mechanically the boat is in great shape and anyone interested in the boat cam PM me for info of what is needed.

LMAO @ Beach Bob! Not to worry... I want the "go fast" look... low windshield, large sunpad, stand-up bolsters, etc.

The Formula SS series is very nice, but not what I'm looking for right now...
