Used to race against Bill Gazelle in one yrs ago. Not a bad boat, but a 28 skater will open up a can of whoop a$$ on it.

This one is a insurance claim, has a little glass damage (easy fix) but the motors are junk. I am pretty sure I can pick it up cheap. Oh the ins company says its a 1998 ??

Thanks

I have personally seen the boat and it does not look bad at all.

Back in June of 2005 I surveyed a 36' center console version with triple Yamaha outboards. It was for insurance, so there was no sea trial and I can't say how it handled. Structurally the boat was good, but get somebody to put a moisture meter on the one you may buy. Be careful of course.
