Default 42' Corsa, your thoughts on good or bad please

1993 Corsa 42' bad boy with two Blown 850s and 3 A drives.
Is this a good boat or just a heavy resin bucket. I found one resonable on the east coast but he only takes cash. Looks very clean inside and out, trailer and all.. But disassenbled in current state.

Boat used to run around the long island south shore. Its not a common boat but it was a wave crusher and loud.

Buy it cheap. Could cost some dollars to put back together.

I have had a 30' Corsa and it was a wave crusher. Solid as a rock but very heavy lay up and takes some power to move.
With twin 300 Johnson V8's it ran 65 mph.

Boat was built by bob Bowers of Fort Lauderdale. Is the boat the 41 with the sharp entry or the 42 from the old seabird 46 molds? Bob and I go way back. He's a really good guy. The 41 was used to make the 44 Tempest. Post some pics and I can tell you more.

Never mind. I found it. It's the 41'. Great hull. The 93 should have the new deck design and this one doesn't. Question the year... also get the MIC. My guess she's an "X" boat.

Amazing how fast someone can find a boat these days with the internet. Yes, that is the Boat, he calls it the 42' and year of 1993. How much does that thing weigh, and how fast will it go with current setup. Thanks MidOcean for your time.
