Funny, that boat has been on ebay non-stop for at least a month. Last week the reserve was meet and the auction timed out... Gotta wonder what's up. ???

Buyer beware.

Figure 40 for motors, 30 for drives, 10 for steering and tabs, 5 to 8 for interior, 5 for gauges throttles cables & wiring, another 5 to 10 for misc expenses. You have close to $100,00 without labor. More than it's worth.

Not really, you have to figure that this boat has NOTHING. When you figure motors don't forget mounts, all the brackets, hoses, exhaust, pumps. On the drives you need trim pumps lines cylinders. every nut, bolt and screw (stainless that is) thats in a boat. Then there's paint, gas tanks, batterys, rubrail, lights and cleats, canvas. You think your labor is free, you have to figure every hour you spend working on it is an hour you can't sell to someone else. I'm not saying it wouldn't be a fun project or a nice piece when its done, but go into it with both eyes open. Course on the other hand EVERY boat is a loosing proposition.

Ive done a few boats like this .. And know all about the cost of rigging a boat .. Thanks for the reminder though .. Its definatly not cheap, easy or anything for anyone with bright ambitions to take on ..
I enjoy this type of thing so yes I consider my labor free "medication" not
"every hour you spend working on it is an hour you can't sell to someone else"

"Holes in the water you dump money into"
I completely agree ..Not a good candidate for resale .Not many boats are ..
But man it would be a nice candidate for a pair of staggered 575's
