ALL of them But the worst is that they all seem to have been fishing boats that nobody took care of, and nothing worked on them, guages, throttles, pumps etc.. Amazing someone would not spend a few hundred bucks and fix everything so the boat shows well. Anyway, after 6 months of looking finally found a good condition one in St. Pete. And just for future info..NEVER NEVER waste your time going south of the Broward line to look at a boat ... Every Miami boat I saw was a complete waste of Gas !!

I agree, somewhat. My boat came from Hialeah, but was only there for a short time, it was up in CT before that, and I bought it from an OSO Member who since then we have bocome good friends. With that said, the boat did have some rot, but I kew that going into it, it is all fixed now, new transom and stringers over last winter. The reason I asked about the Scarab rot, is that a few years back an OSO member from up north was looking at Scarab CC's down here, and found rot in all of them, I ended up looking at a Scorpion CC(Not Chris Craft) for him down in Miami lakes, and all was good, he bought it, and had Doller marine fix a few things, but then ended up having some repetitive carb probblems with the Yamaha's, and switched to verado's.

Tanner, Did we meet on lake Boca one day, not sure if it was you, but I believe you were selling your Cig. at the time, and you and the Superman boat were tied up with us, and a big SeaRay?

Did you get the blue accented one with the K-planes? That looked like a good deal. I've been looking at them also. Probably one of the best "utility" boats for here in south Florida.

Ill give another recommendation for Ed, he looked at my Donzi for me a couple weeks ago and did a great job for me. He also volunteered to go out and give me some pointers on how to be a better driver, and to help me install some parts that needed fixed but had to be ordered. A solid guy!!

No, it is a '99 with the blue and red accent design on th side. It was garage kept in the guys warehouse, so it ended up with no rot or other elememt issues... If I wasnt such a cheap ass I would posa picture, but you have to pay this site to post a photo !!! LOL
