I couldn't help myself. I had to send the guy another email: (he told me it would do 76 mph because it "only" wieghs 3500 lbs.)

Well, I just don't see how it can go that fast with a 330 when my friend Tim (who used to own that boat) could only coax 76 out of it with a healthy 365, light on fuel, and all alone on a 1' chop. I have to tell you, your add is bogus. I was with Tim when the boat sank on the shore of Lake Michigan (want the GPS coordinates of where it sat on the sand bottom for an hour+???). I was the FIRST one to see the damage when the boat was hauled. The crack was 12" long, and the core was litterally falling out of the boat. It is rotton. I also know that one stringer is cracked at the transom.

So what you're saying is this: You fixed the entire bottom of the boat in 2 weeks. Dried the core (or better yet, replaced it entirely), glassed it, and then gelled it. Then you fixed the stringer issue. Then you stuck a used 330 (did you use the manifolds you more or less conned Tim out of??) in it and claim to hit 76 mph? In Manitoba? In January?? I have my doubts. I have run next to Tim on more than one occassion, and NEVER at 76 mph. And so have a LOT of others I know. Including my other 6 friends who were in their boats at the time of the sinking. And then there's the US Coast Gaurd that towed the boat back to port to be hauled. They have a report on file to the extent of the damage. I am telling you now, if you sell that boat in the US, and the new owner has a mishap due to your "repair" and non-disclosure, you will be held liable. The Coast Gaurd will be notified of your intent to sell this boat in the US. If you doubt me, go ahead and sell the boat in the US without telling the buyer about the damage and repair, and that goes for the Scarab too. Wonder what your not discosing in your add about that boat??

It would be in your best interest to FULLY disclose the damage to that boat before you sell it. $14,000??? Not on it's best day since it sank. Beautiful boat as long as you don't look at the bottom. Or the stringer.

Mike

I am booting up that computer now. Give me a second. I have been using the desktop for the large screen. I have AOL on the laptop only.

Hey Cord, do you have any pictures of the damage to the boat? They might look good on a similar add on traderonline so that it would come up anytime his add does.
Just a thought

After reading this I feel sorry for the guy who bought the Scarab. It looked like a nice deal. Cord's boat looked nice also, if you don't know the story. If anyone knows this guys offshore name mail it to me so I never buy anything from him.
