that gimble ring failure is very common on race boats seems to come from hard turns and rough water can cause the pins to wear the ring ( we check for play every time out of water) it doesn't" just happen" unless you hit something or violent spin out , I have seen that six times this year alone in 8 races , we did it in corpus cristi looks like helmet failed which took out the gimble ring bent steering rams , bent trim rams, broke upper drive housing , exploded the U-joints , bent imput shaft, etc.

Yes it's the same boat. Get a survey if you are intrested in it!

I asked the seller if it had sank. They would not answer the question. All they said was it was the cleanest Powerplay out there and they had over 70K into it. Looks like it has the same motors in it though.
