With these boats, you can see it all. And, if you're stupid enough to patch it together and propel it to 100+, you get what you get.

I have alwys driven "totals" I put most of them together myself, and I would trust them more than a brand new vehicle that came off the assembly line. Who is putting that one together? What about a classic with a frame off restore? it's the same thing, probably better parts put into in then new.

My dad once drove the smartest car in Texas, when he bought the car it had brain matter all over then interior.

Welcome to Offshoreonly.com!

That "roll over" is one of the most talked about events I can remember on OSO. It was pulled in by the stolen Rice Hauler Cigarette and sparked an enormous discussion on the whereabouts of the Cigarette.

The Honeyman did a slow roll at roughly 40mph. It was back on the water the next weekend. It's one of the best looking 36 Classics out there by my tastes.

I rented an apartment with my new wife that was just recently vacant. The previous tenant was killed in a cycle wreck. At least the landlord told me. Didn't bother me but I wouldn't buy a boat where someone was killed in a wreck.

Owning a car, bike, or house associated with a death wouldn't bother me.
Having someone tell me about it after I bought said item would.

:
Not the same boat as Rice Hauler. It looked very similar and the owner keeps going through perpetual hassles from this mistaken identity.

Look at P.4 in the Rice Hauler thread in "Stolen Boats"

Well don't quote me on this, but I believe they were going much faster before the roll happened. When the driver cut the throttles and the boat started to rapidly lose speed (forcing all the fuel and 5-6 passenger weight forward), he turned the wheel and it spun/rolled over at about 40mph. Again, this is just the story I got.

Coincidentally, I heard just this morning that the boat has sold and is headed for Oklahoma.
