how much you guys think it is worth, today, considering triple in this fragile economy?

There is another one in OSO classified, same year, but EFI 500's instead of carbed...

what would beyour bet?

Came from National this spring. I had it in contract at 50k but backed out on the thought of trips.

motors are at the end of their useful life.

Count on complete rebuilds. Probably new headers, too.

Will need $50 K to keep running

lot of boat for the money. Just depends on how it was treated for the last decade. Could be problems, or could be fine.

Easily transformed into a bigger powered side ny side twin, and probably be faster.

I thought it was 450. That's what my 1999 382 with 500 EFI's had before needing rebuilds and headers. And that was after new valve springs at 200 hours.
