Whatever Beau tells you, count on it being 100% accurate.

Boat does not have 81 hours and beware odf Scott! Boat has 3 owners in a dispute of ownership, no trailer, one motor just repaired from salt water sitting in it while bank owned it for months and other unknown. Boat was incredible when it was here in Ga a couple years ago but it left and didn't come back as nice. Boat could be and should be bought for a whole lot less. Believe nothin Scott tells you. Read the thread in the Scarab section about the P29 Scott sold an unsuspecting sole last year.

I have considered the 38 here but would go through both engines first and probably replace the headers because that is where the problem arose from. The hour meters last showed around 400 hrs last time i looked at it.

WOW, lots of info, thank you!!!Scott did say there was a problem with one of the owners and they had grabbed the boat back from him???He states both engines are out right now for full rebuilds including pistons.He states it had about 120 hours on her.When you say the boat isn't that nice any more, what would you rate it from 1 to 10, 10 being the nices? Scott rates it an 8.5.thanks
