It's winter. When I was boat shopping, there were about 800+ listings. Then in the summer it's like 400-500.

From what I see it looks good to me (but what do I know??) That's what surveys a for

It looks like someone will be in a real nice Cig. for a great price.

For marketing reasons it wouldn't hurt to give them drives a fresh coat of paint.

If I had a bit more $$ in the bank I would be interested.

You check the zincs in the drive?? Behind the prop?

First make sure your boat is grounded properly and you have the correct anodes for your water type fresh vs salt vs brackish. If that is all OK then you can blame the neighbor with his cabin cruiser and 2 electric lines hanging in the water. He is probbaly to blame and yes as stated above if you are down current you can't hide from the electric man


We had a guy with merc drives every season he would replace his annodes 2 times during the season. After an electrical guy checked it out they found 1 bad ground and a constant power supply that wasn't suppose to be constant rather then hooked up to a key on power supply.


I solved that problem on my cabin cruiser by adding magnesium anodes on my trim tabs and adding extra anodes on the drive. I can honestly say when I pulled myboat out compared to everone else. They were amazed. I also noticed Volvo drives don't errode as quick as merc. at least in my marina.

Sorry to hi-jack this thread,,,, my boat is used primarily in the hudson, brackish water,,, the boat has 2 season, alum. anodes that look like brand new,, the wiring in our docks is atrocious to say the least. Like I said my boat is at the dealer getting fixed as we speak anything I can do to lessen the damage ??? getting them to fix the wiring in the docks ain't gonna happen... I have pics at home and will post tonight, you can see how bad it's eating through the lower gear case, upper cap, around the prop, it's pretty bad...

Its worse if you tie up downstream of a boat with shorepower.
Even worse in salt water.
