Doesn't anyone think that the price is too good to be true?

To me, I think its a very reasonable price. Top Guns hold their value awesome but when you think about it, it has 650HP on Bravo Drives, plus its an 18 year old boat.

I believe in California, you will pay less or no sales tax if the boat is sold by a private individual. Could be wrong about that though.
yes you are wrong. plus you have to pay property tax every year also.

az has no sales tax on a private party sale

Man, I am worried now. Got a couple of warnings....

I'm going to sound stupid, but i didnt' get a survey done.

Can anyone give me advice????? I have put a 20k deposit down on it...and the warnings are worrying me.

I think you're fine, I know that there was a lot of money and time put into that boat not that long ago. Call Phil @ Lip Ship, I believe he's owned it in the past and is familiar with its history.
