Pics of it have been posted here or linked here on OSO before. I know nothing about the boat. Maybe do a search.

Sean, You got that right.

Sydwayz, I tried a search but did not have any positive results.

Here's a link to the most recent ad. I notice the price is finally being lowered:

http://adcache.boattraderonline.com/6/8/7/1582987.htm

I saw the boat up close a few years ago and the boat is very circa '70's, meaning it looks older than 1979 and was in less than tip-top shape.

The wiring and rigging left something to be desired. If you look closely at some of the photos, against the transom you can see loose and hanging wires, stock thermostat housings, and rubber cooling hoses on supposed big motors, that kind of thing.

It's no doubt a tough looking head turner, but it immediately strikes you as very dated and less than professionally maintained mechanically. I didn't get to dig into it very deep, so I can't vouch for the structural aspects.

That said, if it went down another $10-15G, and with a fair mount of elbow grease and rework, she could be a real gem.

All MHO. No disrespect to the current owner!!!
