Can the added step cause it to chine walk? Do you have Marks number? I made a deal on the boat, and I have some concerns. What do you think about the boat? I'm thinking about putting 1300's in it.

Thanks,
JS/ Addiction

PM your number to me so I can talk to you for a few minutes. It will be a day or two before I can get back to you though.

Mike,

What exactly "ruined" it? Was it the step they cut in? Did you see it run too?

Sean, what can you tell me about this boat? Should I close the deal or is it trash? It needs motors, drives, trans, and trim tabs. Need to decide soon. Any help greatly appreciated.

I just happened to have some info handy for you. I don't know if this is the same boat or not, but here goes...

There was an Ocean Spray Scarab that was busted open big time in a race when it hit a turn boat-page 59 Sept. 1996 Powerboat Magazine. There is a small picture of the boat, busted open but still floating.

It was run by Sigalos/Pennhall, and was damaged on the port side, with a chunk of the side missing between the console and engine bay bulkheads, starting about halfway down the side and extending down to the chine.

You may want to get a good look at those areas if that is the same hull.

Good Luck
