In reference to the boats past salvage history i notice somewhere in the thread that the boat was purchased in 07 on LOTO as a salvage? I wonder if it was involved the the ice/snow storm in 06? Sale date of 07 salvage would coincide with about when insurance companies would be settling and releasing boats i would think. Heres a link to one of the threads and a few pic albums of damage. Might get lucky and find a pic in there somewhere.

Thanks all for the input. Good and bad. I think this might be beat to death now. I'll read any more comments but i think i'll respectfully refrain from commenting. It's been fun and if anyone is interested I'll update later this summer..

Thumbs up Water Pumps

We didn't winterize because customer took right from trailer to the boat slip. I don't think anyone expected temperature to drop that quick and customer was planning to go boating.

What we are really looking for here is information on the totaled/salvage claim from 2003. If anyone has any information or pictures it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Thumbs up Thank you

Thank you for posting these pics. I don't see the 38EC in question in here. The previous owner called today because he heard about the thread and would like to now as well if any members on this board can find anything.

Chad's boat is nice and hopefully up and running soon. It would a shame if after all this the boat was never totaled or salvaged as claimed.

This board is full of knowledge and odd that there are n post to the claim.

If any of you can find anything, please let Chad and I know.

Thank you in advance.

Scott,

Looks to me like you guys are doing everything you can to make this right for everyone. Next time I'm buying, I wouldn't hesitate to give you a call.

Thumbs up Thank you board member

I want to thank a board member for calling me this AM to give me input on getting information for salvage/totaled boats.

If any of you have a question about a boat you want to buy you can go to www.iamimarine.org, type in contact us and then pursue what questions you have.

We hope that we can get info and provide Chad info on his 38EC by Tuesday.

Thank you to the board member for providing this info.
