I heard from one broker i have onboard that a couple years back a 41 Apache that was in a garage used probably "for a transport job" one time went on auction by the feds un-noticed and the reserve of 25k was met...and it turned around the next day for 50k...actual worth? 250k
LPA2106,
First of all, you've got more chit with you than a constipated elephant!! But, if your really looking for an old Cigarette, check out midwestpowerboats.com. There might be a few there for ya.

By the way,
That Magnum is owned by an OSO member.

Fred,
See the first sentence in my last post. Just play along with LPA

Did you forget about that big 10 mph gaining package that you were going to send me for my boat?

I'll let you know how it performs during "testing" next week.

Thanks!!

..too old is right....as far as the constipation joke...pretty funny...

Q. Well, did you hear about the constipated accountant?
A. He couldn't budget.


Q. Did you hear about the constipated composer?
A. He couldn't finish the last movement.


Q. Did you hear about the constipated mathematician?
A. He worked it out with a pencil.


and a 29' Fountain and the 28' Pantera are of course different...but a lot of boat with each for the investment...

....chit is what makes the world go 'round...I need a steering shaft faring...and yea I am nuts

that Aronow was a 45' sorry...lookie here...nice drives eh?


...I am having a great time looking....my boss got excited and bought a company boat...so i have that till the perfect boat for me comes along for ME...our company boat is a 38' Scarab t-HP500's...stepped...I think a 2002....he bought it out of the trading times....for like 100k or something..looks decent..engines need work....so it's in the shop for a couple weeks...rebuild...drives seals etc...hey he was gonna buy a lead sled cruiser...till I talked some sense in him...
