I put about 15-30hrs a year on my go-fast

I put 100hrs a year on my sea ray.

The Sunsation is a 24 Rocket. The guy is asking 13500. Does that price sound reasonable?

sounds reasonable. My 1990 Baja w/454 - Bravo 1 has 530 hours on it and still runs great. Heck I'd take $13,500 for it

425 hours is loooooow. And considering the motor doesn't have an ECM, there is no way to know for sure how many hours are actually on the motor. Go to Sunsation's site post some questions about the boat. Joe at the factory may have information as to the original owner and the boat's history.

Ours is a '96 and it has 295 hrs, and I think it's used pretty sparingly

!!! I think this is the boat that I bought. White 90' Rocket with red and black in St. Clair Shores? 425 is what he said... it actually had 428 on it.

The boat has been great so far. I jumped a freighter wake/wave and broke some wood in the driver's seat (I'm a big guy just under 300lbs). That, and the center windsheild support is cracked (I knew about it when I bought the boat). So far, she runs nice and smooth.

I just got the seat rebuilt with better brackets and wood and got it reinstalled yesterday! Had the seam on the back seat fixed as well. Can't wait to go back out. I noticed that the passenger seat is a little loose on the right side of it, but the bolts seem to be stripped in the floor. Need to figure out how to fix that...

If anyone wants to meet up, I'm anxious to meet some people to hang out with on the lake. I'll be out there this Wed. and probably all weekend.

Later,
-=Mike G.

Congratulations Mike. I am glad the boat was in as good shape as the guy told me. If I did not have my own Boat/ Project, I would have bought that one. May I ask what you paid for it?
