Not sure, but this is about its 40th time on ebay at the same exact starting price and buy it now. You would think he would play with the numbers a little and see what happens. Nice boat though.

I believe it was part of the national marine fiasco, sold @ auction maybe 1yr ago. At that time it was unknown if the boat ran - best guess, the buyer is in way over his head or growing tierd of replacing the drives.

wasnt nationals plan to ut the turbines in a 39 mti? I sent the buyer an email to see if he'll part with the engines. The bmax's surprised me. would be worth much more with 6's or ASD's.

That boat sat at Gruinnegers (sp?) in pontoon beach ill for a few months, if you are really in interested, call Clark Gruinniger, or Randy Sismat MTI

They can probably point you in the right direction
