looks very clean, don't know anything about the boat, a suggestion would be to add the hydraulic steering if you were to purchase it.
Good luck

Seems like a pretty good deal for the money. The two seam tears in the back seat bottom, is a common problem. When I bought my Fountain back in 01, the seat bottom was starting to do the same thing in the same place. It's from people stepping on the seat at the seam to get on to the engine hatch pad.
I had the bottom redone, and they eliminated the center piece of material, and made the material go all the way across the bottom, and there's no more tearing problems.

The tears wont be a problem for me. I got contacts here that can fix the vinyl cheap. The hydraulic steering is something that I will want. But not needed right away. I do most, all to date, of my boating on the rivers here at Pittsburgh. I do want to start taking trips to Erie and the Chesapeak and Atlantic though. Thats why I want something with length and twins.

Basically, Im looking in the 30 to 35 foot range and want to be able to hit 80mph without breaking the bank. Yes, I know it costs money to run fast. Id like to keep the purchase price near 50k. Dont want all my money going towards payments then not afford to run and maintaine the boat. Right now I have my choices down to....

35 Lightning
31 Bullet
32 Active Thunder
31 Sonic SS
35 Cafe Racer
30 Outlaw

Sean's Cafe would be a great buy, but i'm sure he's asking more than that... and i dont think he's hitting 80.
