Looks like a regular auction to me?????

With that power/hours, trs's and no trailer, its probably a 50-60k boat depending on condition.

I was going to take a shot at winning it but it's more then I want to spend now, I talked to the owner and high bid takes it so that it doesnt sit for the winter, I am high bidder now but he says he thinks he will get his cash for it (high 40's) which is still a good deal but more then I want to spend on a project!

Seems odd you would post this link if you were looking to buy the boat. More viewers = higher chance of bidders = more competition for you to get a deal on the boat. Now you admit you are high bid but no longer interested sounds like you are pumping up the price for your buddy's boat..........

Why not just retract your bid instead of just bumping up the price?

Default TG on E-bay

I'm interested also. But I have a Mistress I would like to sell first. I may still bid on it. I could take my 540 cu.in. engines out and swap them. Noboby wants a 60 mph TG. I hate to have two boats in storage all winter. Plus the TG doesn't have a trailer. There's another 8 to 10 grand to spend on a trailer. No one seems to be talking very much about this boat. Does anyone have any history on it? I see someone bid 40,000 a few minutes ago. I guess all the action will start tomorrow.

Because the high bid at 40 right now is all the money for that boat and the owner knows it.

I say it is a fair price for someone looking for a boat.

Nice to see that there are some reasonable owners out there.

What drives are on the boat? Bravos or trs? It doesn't say in the ad but it says that the trannsmissions are good. Good looking boat!!
