It's not the Cafe with the rotted transom, neither is the one in post #18.

It looks similar to some of the boats Midwest Power Boats re-did. If that is the case, Kevin & Shawn Heiliger are top-notch to work with and have done some incredbile Cigarette restorations. Thier website is down, but I think I read here recently they are still in business.

The 91 cafe has about the nicest grafics that I have seen. If I were in the market, that one would be near the top of the list.
I like some other cabin layouts better.

About two years ago we had two boats with a red stripe, this Cafe and a Top Gun missing one engine. This Cafe had Merc 500HP carb motors that were installed new and the previous owner had only run it a few times before problems with his back prevented him from boating at all. He stored it for year and sent it to us to sell. It was a nice boat with no problems and definitely no transom issues. I sold the current owner a cafe before this one with supercharged engines, so this is his second Cafe. He obviously did a fine job updating this boat. It has merc 500s's which is rare to find in a Cafe, has the newest style upholstery and cabin layout, and good paint. It looks like a value to me. It would be easy to spend in excess of $60,000. to update engines, paint, and upholstery to this caliber in a lessor boat.
