Default Sutphen 30 "Bad Influence"

Guys, I am looking into purchasing this boat as my first powerboat and was wondering if anyone has any information, both positive and negative, or any stories about the boat. I would hate to have to drive all the way from New Orleans, to Miami just to find out it isn't everything I expected. FYI it is currently listed in classifieds. Any other suggestions on things I should keep an eye out for besides service records, stringers, transom, floor, etc? The purchase, pending an inspection, comes recommended from someone with years of experience, but I would like to get some information from you guys b/c of the vast wealth of knowledge and experience and I would like to learn from some of the expensive mistakes that have been made so I don't make the same.

Have a survey done on the boat before you buy it. Also post this in the Sutphen forum, lots of Sutphen knowledge over there.....someone may know this boat.

Hope to get one This New Year. I payed every thing off . Now I'm looking. Good luck with what ever You get. You will get great help on here. Happy New Year
