I knew there was a reason I was saving these old pictures !
Thanks
I look foreword to seeing those pictures.

I think Bayliner could teach Profile a thing or two about building a boat !!!!!!!!!!

ya, i'm thinking about cutting my losses at the $500.00 I sent this piece of $#*& broker and going golfing year. The problem with these brokers is they will not give you any information or let you look at the boat (especially this time of year since they are stored) without an accepted offer from the owner. And of course, they want 10% down (which I refused but still sent out $500) to get into the game. Now he wants another $1,000.00 or my credit card numbers (YA RIGHT) to hook the engines up to a hose. And if there's a problem do you think I'm getting my money back. NOT! I've got to kiss @#$ when I sell a boat. WOW! I realized profiles weren't the cadillac of powerboats but it's hard to justify having bid dollars in a boat in the midwest for four months. I've had a 1997 31 scarab w/ 525sc's, 1999 fountain with blown 500's (currently for sale on this site) and just sold my 2001 Nordic 35 w/500 efi's. These have all been nice boats and was looking something with twins that I didn't have a ton of money in. Thanks, for all the help and happy boating. And watch out for those boat brokers! I'll never deal with one again, cheap lesson I guess!

Be happy you passed on this one, If you have had the boats you say then you should know what you are looking at. If you got there and really looked at the Profile you would have walked away before you even tried to start it. Good luck there are a lot of deals out there on good boats

Huh?? Are you serious?? I guess I've heard of crazier things.
Can you explain how, and what this was supposed to do?
Or did I miss the joke, and am showing my ignorance?

I was serious ! Sombody told him it was lighter and would not become saturated, like other foam flotation. He had the ping pong balls in large mess like laundry bags stuffed up front between the stringers. The flaw of this design was these bags are not bonded to any structure so, when the boat came apart so did the bags of ping pong balls.

With our triple outboard Shadow Cat race boat we use to use inner tubes.

The idea is even still used today...
