The boat has been on Copart salvage for months. I bet he won the online bid, and is now trying to sell it from their yard and make a few bucks. The listing has the same pictures as Copart had on their site also. Hard to sell something and say the motors are good, when you have not even seen it in person. I wonder what the cabin looks likes?

I see nothing wrong with it just a LITTLE smoke damage.

Here you go guys...got a response from the dousche-bag.

Dear paulslonaker,

Dear Texas, please bid from the photos. You are a quick study,
there was a fire here, not black paint that needs to be wiped off.
My sons description takes a stab at some humor, but make no
mistake it will take some work. I can assure you, the buyers
here understand that. I suggest you not bid unless you can
understand what you see from experience. Keep in mind you
are looking at a boat worth well over a hundred grand. Thanks
for looking.

A boat in that shape is not worth no 100K.

Besides, heat can do unrepairable damage to the resin and glass it was built with.... Or should I say, not worth reparing...?

I think the people making a bid on this POS are dreaming that the motors survived the cook-out. I seriously doubt that the motors survived...especially the blowers. Gas fires burn pretty hot and aluminum doesnt tolerate that at all.

wonder if he even owns it ? I think a lot of people find stuff like that and throw it on ebay to see what kind of bids they can pull ,and then try to win the copart auction.

Not only the heat, but if the fire was put out with water then there is a good chance that the motors ingested water threw the flame arrestors.

OK guys...sit down on the floor for his latest response to me. This way you wont fall off a chair and possibly hurt yourself...

Dear paulslonaker,

In a few weeks I will be driving this boat on a poker run, what will
you be doing? Laughing I guess! I know I am. Who cares what
keyboard cowboys think of themselves? Some do life, some type.


- murcielago8898 Did this answer your question? If not, let the seller know.

Dear murcielago8898,

I will just pass onthe boat. The boat WAS worth over 100K when it was new and no damage...the key words here are NEW and NO DAMAGE. I do fiberglass work and I KNOW what it is going to roughfully cost. As for the motors...more than likely...they are ruined. I can assure you that the blowers are worthless now. Your son's attempt to the humor thing is NOT truthful. You can use the humor thing for a cop-out, but that dog wont hunt and your listing and your son are the laughing stock on OffShoreOnly.com.
