I am looking for used around $60k.

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 ...
Yes I am. Saw you post on the Sunsation board something similar, figured you might want to know more. I probably would if I were in your shoes.

I didn't pay much more than you would have, as far as I know, it was just that I had cash right then and there. I dunno exactly what happened, just telling you what I know.

If I didn't buy that boat, I'd have been giving Bert a call about his Lavey. That boat is hot hot hot!

As a current Kachina owner my 34 handles what I do very well. Thanks for not bashing them completely there are some things I would change if it came down to it but mine I believe is built very well. For the difference in price I would probably buy another but it would be brand new & I would change a few things, First thing would be power choice, second stereo equipment,if doing graphics find a painter but mine is all white with the graphics air brushed in 3d then clearcoated.For what I spent Im pretty happy other than my power choice but the checkbook dictated that at the time. BTW Kachina Boat Builders is in buisiness again Louis original partner bought the place as I understand it & finally got the molds back from the bank. Their # (602)244-1450 if anyone is interested.Randy
