Thats a Lightning with nothing in it. The 47 Cruiser would be LUCKY to see 60's with any fuel and people with that mild power.

You obviously have Fountain Powerboats confused with RF Powerboats.

Last bidder has 100% of his 1 bid history (in last 30 days history) on that 1 item, based on bid history.

I posted a link to that boat here a week ago and only got a few replies back on it.
I contacted the seller about a quick survey there by ebaymail and never got a response back or saw it posted in the bottom of the ad with the other questions to the seller. I guess he was more interested in talking about the minor damage to the carpet in the cockpit.
It kind of seemed to good to be true with a 30k opening bid and no reserve. I wanted to bid but passed. Hopefully the buyer has the jack and it's a sound boat.
I thought the same thing about the seller's claim of 80+
I found a boating test on the web from over 10 years ago with a 47 sport cruiser with triple 525SC's, it GPS'd at 70 going out to Catalina Island. My guess was 55-60 with the 502's.
This is really the boat I've wanted but they're always priced higher than my budget.
I wonder if a member here bought it.

See ya,
Kelly
