Thanks.

The pics were taken at the state park boat ramp on the north shore of Canandaigua Lake, near The Inn on the Lake.

Boat just like that just sold here for 22K but it was a 2000. You can do better than that one, or get him down some on price.

Have someone close look at it to weed out the junk, as stated never buy a boat that you havent laid eyes on.

Not this one! I was off to the chiropractor every Monday morning after running my 272 in the Ches Bay slop.

My buddies PQ 280 rode much better.

Formula is a good choice too.

It looks really clean,, but pics....

wat do u guys think? would u drive 15hrs to buy that boat?
NO WAY!!! There are just to many clean fresh water boats closer in N.Y.S.
The 271 I posted pics of is just one of many,and that one is beyound clean. That Baja would haunt you for the rest of your days.

The boat is a big 28, actually 27'-7" long to be exact.
Good freeboard height, the cuddy is relatively deep, good sized v birth although not a lot of head room ( you can't sit up on the bed) altogether a very well built boat.
Lots of storage under the hatch, rear seat, the closet in the cuddy holds a lot as well as a huge and I mean huge glove box.
This boat has been for sale for a long time , price has dropped, owner at this point should be motivated.
I have hundreds of pics of my boat I could send you for details and reference.- just sold it last month!!

The bimini and camper enclosure is a bonus imo.
thanks i would love to see your pictures.

if you could maybe pm me with price i should offer.
