A recommendation from an OSO member would be excellent. I would even pay a fee for a good unbiased opinion. How would I contact a member in that area?
(possibly a new post with Texas as the subject?)

If it's as nice as described and you're serious about it, I'd call the seller and tell him you'll take it under two conditions:

1) The trailer comes with the boat for $44,500.

2) The sale pends on the results of survey amd inspection.

All in all it looks like a nice find. I dont know much about this model, but the Scarabs always caught my eye.

Nice looking boat. Good luck.
Another thing you might check is the Bravo drives. There have been two upgrades to the uppers since 1991. The upgrade will run you about $1300 per drive. The shifting cone liked to weld itself to the gear. then you can't get it out of gear.

Cool

Don't worry about the switchable mufflers. They may be illegal where you boat, cause a lot of internal problems and there are better, much less expensive systems available which won't hurt performance and add a sweet tone. I'd sure take a close look, the price seems really worth while...

This deal is getting near the end of negotiations. 42K with the trailer - pending a good survey. If this isn't the right move somebody stop me before I sign on the dotted line!!

Thanks for the help FeverFan. I couldn't get a test ride hooked up over the last weekend and didn't want to put you to more trouble. Your review of the boat was a nice bit of information to have before going farther with the deal. If the survey turns out good I think we are about to close this one up. Do you know any surveyers or mechanics qualified to do the inspections that you would recommend?
