How much does the boat and trailer weigh?

I'm sorry, but 50-100k a year???? That is crazy. If it has fresh trannys and engines you can go a full year with just gas, oil changes, and adjusting the valves..........
On the flip side, if you smoke something, engine, drive, transmission, it's gonna cost you money.
A 46 Skater is a beast, period.........ask Byrdman. You will need at least 3 people to help you launch and retrieve it. Pulling into your favorite little cove??? Forget it.
Family boat??? Forget it
Easy to tow?? Forget it
OWN anything around.......yep.

Hate to see this happen to people, it's a shame to have to give that boat away,what a deal !
Your Welcome BIG Daddy
Dont get cheap on us Glenn Buy this Badd Dawg and Rudy can put your Talon motors in my 40 and send the 46 this way and will work out the minor details...

You could probably buy it, and swap for more reliable but smaller power to someone?

Trade in on a new truck, sales are hurtin and deals are good.

Bet you could get a smokin' deal on this too - won't pull it with an F650, but I bet it will get around on it's own bottom just fine...

I heard a story (a bit of Newport folklore?) that when they brought that boat home and docked it in front of their house their neigbor flipped (ruined his view). And that the Herbsts basically just wrote the guy a check and bought his house. Anyone know if that's a true story?
