I have seen the pics, but I don't have any. The guy that told me is reliable. His slip is across from mine. The people only had minor injuries on the one he rescued, and he said the driver told him he came down on the peak of a large wave after a huge jump.

Captain Yarrr. You are the one that bought the sunsation I had the deposit on ?
If so what actually happened was the first email he sent me after the auction said that I got a great deal on the boat and he got alot of great offers on the boat after the auction endded .. And to let him know if I wanted the trailer, it would be another $3500.. This is after I talked to him asked about the boat and trailer, Had a buddy stop by look at everything and go for a ride. After the sale We went back and forth about the trailer a couple of emails then I said I would just take to boat by itself but he just sent back my deposit and would not reply to my phone calls or email.. I had all my finance in order and had the trip planned to pick it up... That guy is really the bottom of the barrel ...

I think I ended up buying the same boat. I am not sure if the seller was giving me a line. But he said the trailer was always included, the problem was he was a motivated seller and needed the cash like yesterday. You didn't have it ready to go according to him.



That boat sold to a board member in San Antonio. He plans on taking it out here to Lake Travis, looking forward to seeing it.

Improbable but not impossible I guess. I still need pics to actually believe it. There's almost the same damage on the ones that have had accidents. It's not due to poor construction though.

are you referring to TJ's 42? if so, lake Erie was very angry that day , there was a 382 or 419 Fastec that took a severe beating as well...

I have a mid cuddy open bow Lavey 2750. I also have a wife of 42 years, 2 married kids both with two kids. Additionally, most of my friends are old like me. The setup is wonderful. Lots of outside room for 10 or so people.

Its great to go fast and then put the fam or friends on and chug to a restaurant on the lake. It ain't as sexy but practical. Quent
