Nope.... gas leak and then an explosion... seems it toasted one passenger and then blasted him onto the bow... everyone got off ok.... but the boat sank in 2440 feet of water... Total loss....

TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK HONESTLY
I wouldn't touch this boat with a 10ft pole. I think you'll end up sinking a ton of money into a boat that's been abused and will probably spend more time chasing problems than enjoying the boat. My advice would be to go buy a clean, well taken care of, turn key boat. Don't limit yourself to whats around here. There are a ton of 25 Outlaws on boattrader. Start calling on the ones that look interesting and when you have it narrowed down go take some road trips to look at them. This boat looks like another JayL13 saga in the making.

Which Active Thunder is your friends? The 28 that stays on Diversion?
