foul...that's cold man... wonder where that boat is today...feel sorry for the guy that bought it

specs on the 28 are:

28ss hull only...no engines, drives, transom assemblies, no trailer. It previously ahd small blocks with Volvo drives

has trim tabs, 2 fuel tanks(the forward on has been moved ahead of the forward bulkhead for some reason...dunno why...I would have the tanks pressure tested before use because I don't know their condition. the helm is all there, but the gauges are old an probably need replacement.

i have the cabin interior which is blue vinyl and old...it can be cleaned up though...

the cockpit interior is complete, however, the rear bench is in sorry shape...wood is rotted and vinyl is coming apart at the seams.

I also have a bunch of old parts from my other 28 including winshield fram, and variosu deck hardware that sill go with the boat.

the boat structuraly sound and i wne over it with a plastic mallet prior to my purchase. all stringers, bulkheads, transom and bottom are solid.

feel free to call me if you have any other questions...516 455 1200

i just realized i may have hijacked this thread...sorry guys...sorry Cord...

I'd check out JOKER.
Its a sitdown badazz single!
Not sure if there are any used around.

Also the 29 EXTREME is real nice!

I was just going to say the same thing. The only problem with those is the the fact that you'd probably have to buy new. Also look at the 30 superboat.

Phantom makes a 29 sit down model with a small cabin too... but used they are far and few between.

Tim, why don't you look for a used 28 daytona or something.... they have a "cabin" of sorts... and 80 is easy, even with a single engine.

Also, I hear Hugh would sell his boat if the offer were right.....

Also look at a 27 excalibur.

CBDRAGON-I got your information the other day, I must say THANKS! I'd highly recommend that everybody go out and buy a Dragon powerboat! Plug, plug.

Mike, I'd like to, but this cat insurance thing is just insain. That's the only reason that we're shopping for a V. The only reason.

Sean-I figured that somebody would hijack the thread sooner or later. Just didn't think it would be this soon!

Magnums that are updated and look new bring BIG money. I have seen some that are restored and look brand new with VOLVO drives sell in the 60's so for this one, it isn't that uncommon to see at that price. There is a Magnum starfire for sale that is all original and just a real nice boat and is is selling for 50K. The starfire's bring a little more than the sports just because of there uniqueness and taller engine compartment. But like everyone else, I am just bias. I have always loved magnums.
