...old school? spicy?
Jetjock on this board bought that boat. It is in Texas now and he was toying with the idea of selling.

Too bad most people don't have a clue about what it costs to complete a rebuild of a boat from the ground up or the money to do it in the first place....


I forgot there was a collectors market for old boats like there are for cars. This thing is an 80's which doesnt qualify it for the old old school factor yet, and on top of that everybody knows stuff in the 80's is either gawdy or junk or the combination of both.
It pains me that people think they throw a bunch of money into something like a boat and make like new condition they think its worth like new, and its not.

It's cool but for a 125k I can have me a nice 42 or 47 fountain that is 20 years newer and goes faster.

Does it even say what it was re-powered with ??? I can't find anything about the powertrain. Maybe if it was repowered with the 1075 #6 package, it might bring that kind of coin. Just my $.02
