I have looked at the 400ss but the newer models are a little to pricey for me...nothing wrong with the older models mind you...and yours looks like its in good shapeWhy are you selling?

I have 525's in my 400ss and it runs great. It will run 60 but it doesnt handle the rough like the cig so very rarely do i get to use all the power. But when it is smooth out in the ocean it is fun.

I would have thought that the 400 SS would be a wave crusher.
