I remember seeing that boat at GrafikEFX in Bunnell last year. The guy was wayyy behind in payments to Chris... Apparently he had other issues too.

Good luck getting insurance on it after you complete it.

I was intersting in buying this boat. Before the feds had it I figured out what it would cost to rig the boat with the proper power and made a "Fair" offer. It was laughed at. If you figure out what it's going to cost for the power, drives, full riggigng, interior, gauges, trailer, props, dial in time etc etc etc. etc. It will cost you way more to own this 2003 (almost 4 year old boat) then it would to buy several others already completed and are currnetly on the market (oso classifieds). Believe me, I spent hours and figured it to the penny what it would cost to complete this boat. It's is a lossing propasition. The money you might save on this hull from buying a new one is less the the depreciation of this 4 year old hull is worth.
