I notice that one everytime I go dreaming, er, I mean shopping... through the classifieds.
Looks like very well cared for.
The graphics are a little too "loud" for me, but not over-the-top Ronald McDonald. I could live with it for a few season's, then paint it something a little more subtle.
Nice boat, good price.

Seems high for an 18 year old, 30" boat that probably won't do 75 MPH. Especially in this market.

carter31 here on OSO owns the boat. He buys and sells quite a few Bullets. He usually buys them and fixes them up, keeps them a year or two, and then moves on to another one. He and Kevin @ Midwest Powerboats usually work on them together. That in itself should say enough about the work performed on these boats if it's needed.

Don't be afriad of anything Carter has for sale. I have spoken to him about the last two he has had on the market. He is not afraid to tell you what is wrong and what is right about each one.

Luckily for the rest of you I have been too financially strapped to my new shop building and the construction of a new home to purchase it. If it wasn't for that we wouldn't be sitting here complaning about that price of that boat. Which IMO is a fair price.

If it's the boat I'm thinking of, it came from a buddy of mine in St. Louis. I'll try to get him to chime in. I know it needed some work, but it sounds like the new owner has probably fixed it up.

In my opinion, that boat is worth the asking price. Dustin has done a nice job with all of his previous Bullets. Any Cafe that is going for 53K is a junkbox that needs a TON of work. The boat should do 75mph with that power.

The third line in my signature below is what makes OSO wonderful!!!

Here's a link to a thread that has the speeds vs. HP in a Bullet. 500 HP's will get you 73mph. My old Bullet had about 600 per side and ran 83 on it's best day, but always 79 or so on a hot, humid day. The paint on mine was done by the same painter (Vincent Custom Paint) and still looks very good 6 years later.
