But that might be real bad?

I think people have to keep in mind, everyone has their own standards. I'll preface this by saying I'm somewhat of a perfectionist. I'm a good guy to preview a boat for you as long as you don't want a rosy picture. If there's a flaw, I'll find it. I looked at the boat a few months ago, and put an offer on it. Much of it has been redone. For me, there is more to go, and I would put at least another $20K into the boat and trailer to get it into new looking condition (assuming no major mechanicals need freshening). Beware that insurance is difficult to get with the 800's. When I looked at it, the boat was $100K. It's now near $80K, so I think it is probably a reasonable buy, and should sell (good luck to Jeffrey!). To answer someone's question, the boat is from Maryland.

The insurance company tables were coming up with 135. That boat would satisfy just about anybody for speed.

when i bought my boat, i looked at this one real closely and had a few emails with the owner.. my only issue was insurance or id have been all over it.. it was basically uninsurable for me with no prior boat ownership.. i think its a great deal..

Matt from TNT marine in Miami can fix those drives. Or send them to Mel Riggs in Wisconsin. He still has parts from the Mayflower
