LOL, yessiree. Brand new 1988 Indy 22 / King Cobra BBF combo.

Owned it two seasons. Blew up 13 drives, two starters, one shifter handle, one throttle cable, one tach, one gas gauge, one bilge blower, one engine hatch ( the crappy latch they used broke and the hatch flew off into the lake at 70mph and sunk immediately, cabin door frame fell off and broke the acrylic doors, seat bases both broke more than once, trailer winch post snapped off while on the highway and bounced around under the boat until I could get it stopped.

I traded it in on a new 1990 Power Play and the dealer ripped the motor mounts off the stringers while demoing the boat for a buyer.

Friggin cursed from day one that thing was.

hang in there i have owned my boat for 4 years now first year 4 rides blew up motors second year 3 rides blew up motors, third year 6 rides blew up both drives, fourth year this year 1st ride out blew up a drive, second time out blew a starter we'll see what happens next weekend.
the days they run great you have no issues you will realize why you bought a boat. they are expensive, they are a great deal of fun, they will all break down sometime. be patient do the best you can and work through the bugs.
but don't give up on it when your almost there

Don't skimp on what you buy for the offering, the gods of the seas don't take kindly to cheap wine, or champagne as the case may be.
