Question Surfing boattraderonline - what are they thinking?

I was re-reading cigracer28/38's thread about his 28ss this morning (damn, what a boat!) and decided to do a little surfing on Boat Trader online. Sometimes, I think reading the ads on boattrader is the web equivalent of watching the boat ramp olympics - lots of things that make you say "What were they thinking?"

Here's a 28 that "will do 80 mph" on 450 hp small blocks. Apparently there were no GPS speedos in 1973

And here's another '73 that's going for $70K! Admittedly, it looks to be a beautiful boat, but come on - $70K for a 30 year old 28 foot boat? I'm guessing he'll have that one for a while...

Anyone else run across some good ads out there?

I bet it could do 80 mph - you just have to have one of those resent Pierce City, MO tail winds!

Oh my gosh. Who does he think he's kidding? MAN there are some dumb assed people out there! I love the"New 502's" with "less than 200 hours! And its a flat deck, not a gun!

Sean I agree, that is THE baddest Cafe I've seen too. I bet it will H.A.U.L. A.S.S.
