I wonder if they demil'ed it with a .50 cal or towmotor forks. Either way, there's got to be a ton of patches on those sides. You have to give the seller props for the "full disclosure" on the boats.

Boat even has HUBERT transmissions. Isn't that a cartoon charachter?

well , i lived 2 miles away from UNITED STATES MARINE who manufactured those boats , they were called SOCS. special operation craft. very, very, well built boats. they had there own toolers building molds. i worked there back in the early 90's for a short while in the paint / glass department. difficult in that department because i didn't speak spanish(no pun intended). those boats were sold to the navy at a cost of 750k a piece. the navy bought like 70 of them....

they came with innovation closed cooled 700+ power , hubers , and 3a's...

they would drop them out the sky from those big (c-10 ???) planes with parachutes

Theres an hsb on yachtworld.com for around 75k with diesels.

Almost bought a hull last year, before I bought my Midnight.

The thing was built like a tank. The hullsides were glassed to the top deck, you could hit the thing with a sledge hammer and it would probably break the hammer. It did have four .50 cal holes in it. Apparently the Govt either rams fork lifts into the hull side or shots em with .50 to claim them as salvage so they will get INs nd be allowed to sell to public with no liablity issues. Its a shame to see one really destroyed by fork lifts. Are tax dollars at work.

I didnt buy it after my buddy told me that the first one he sold was so tough that when the guy was trying to modify it, he went through several types of different blades, cutting tools etc to get through Kevlar, he finally had to use a PLASMA TORCH to cut it open!!!!!! Thats tough.
