+ 12,000 for a trailer. Good deal but why the new interior? Wet? It is a very nice looking boat. I say get a marine survey and a sea trial and buy it if it checks out.

Ditto... Looks like a nice boat!...but...Have him get a survey done. It's the best money he'll ever spend.

I agree it is a nice looking boat , but what about the TRS drives? I know they won't break but doesn't that hurt the resale ?
Also do you think this boat will even go seventy?

It might go 70. I would check with the engine builder to see a list of internal parts. You don't want a hack job just to move it and last for a few hours. It looks like it was well kept and covered which makes all the difference in the world.

Look at that!! - A 38' version of the twinn29!!! My boat is an 89 and has identical paint and graphics. the interior on my boat is pearl with red accents, thats right, pearl, and on parts that have seen allot of sun the pearl fades in to grey and looks dirty, still lots of strength left but the "pearl" is gone and it looks crappy, Maybe thats why the interior was changed......Doug
