Default 47 fountain

i have the opportunity to buy a 47 fountain w/ 2 merc 525sc"s and speedmaster #6 drives- what does everyone think- i can buy the boat in the 50's w/ trailer- motors have 50 hrs- drives 1 hr since being gone through- boat has no interior in cabin- any suggestions- boat is otherwise complete and running it currently runs 55 mph which i think is pretty lame!!! any ideas on fuel consumption???

i currently have a 32' pachanga w/ 2 454's that i just did- around 420-440 hp, w/ bravo drives,so it is pretty healthy, it also has a/c, a head,refrig,plotter, etc, but i could definetely use more space(cabin wise)

My 1st sport boat was an '87 P22. Very nice boats. Hated to sell it.

A couple yrs ago here was a topic about 1st boats. Interesting at how many had Pachangas.

I could care less about the cabin i hate cabins (my 002) so yea the cabin looks like a$$ but the boat yea it's slow but it looks decent at that price, just with the drive if there in good condition there's the money. it's got the cockpit of that red one that is a early 90 that use to be a race boat if i'm correct and like the new poker run not exactly but looks alike
