Looks like a sweet boat, I would think of putting some wilder grafx on it.

get a survey!!!!!!
ive talked to addwaterandgo the seller about 2 other boats they have and ill just say that they have a different view then me on what "good condition" means. i was contacted by a member of another boating site about a boat they have that he looked at and it has a rotten bulkhead. the broker never mentioned it to me when i inquired about it
the scarab might be a very good boat. just be carefull!

Default Still Looking

OK, I have emailed and talked to this broker. He sent a lot of nice pictures of the boat. Says there is nothing whatsoever wrong with the boat except the silent choice exhaust won't switch back and forth, has something to do with the vacuum. Everything else is excellent. If I get real serious I will get a survey. The boat is at Victory One Marine -Dickinson, Texas. Any suggestions for a reliable survey? The asking price with aluminum trailer is $45,500. I am thinking he will still come off 2-3K but not sure yet. Is this too much, about right, a steal? I am not in a hurry and if this doesn't sound reasonable let me know. Your opinions and experience are appreciated.

You may want to pay a Merc Mechanic to pop the gears out and have a peak. A 91 will have some hours on it. Might be useful as a bargaining chip.

Boat has 400 hours and the engines have 85 hours since freshening. Is this about right for a 12 year old boat? Seems low to me but I'm no expert . Any suggestions on getting a survey?
