Thumbs up

Great boat I had one for five years. Handeled rough water very well. If price is right go for it.

What is a good price on these boats?

A local dealer has an 85. Twin 350's with one new moter and drive(30hrs) the other one replaced 4 years ago. re-geled the boat white and added vinyl graphics. New interior in cockpit and new cockpit cover. Sits on a 90 triple axle aluminum trailer. Dealer wants 16,900. Does that sound about average.

I have one here on my lot for the same price. I have been eyeballing it for three weeks now and am ready to pull the trigger myself. The Boat has New paint and interior, Fresh small blocks, and sits on a 1997 Pacific. The boat is Safe and capable of Catalina Runs with my kid sister on board. I would say if the price is right and it is not a project boat. Pull the trigger and buy it. Good luck. Matt

Check very carefully along the chines and keel for stress cracks. These have had some problems with cracks along those areas. If not addressed they become "landing craft".

Dave, let me know when you go to look at it, and I'll go with if you want. Haven't seen the pinhead in years. Be good to see him.
