There's a 37" active cat, ex-race boat at LOTO I looked at last fall. Twin canopied deck, no engines/drives, trailer included. If you're interested, it could probably be bought for under $5K.

The hull is rougher than that one. Like I said, ex race boat, but I didn't find any structural problems. Twin/split canopied deck with rough race interior. Rigging is there, but I would syggest replacing it. But the trailer alone is probably worth $5K.
See the following links for info on it.

It will look great when it's done. My personal thought is the tunnel is worth about 15,000 to 20,000 without a trade providing tanks and interior is good to fair. meaning if the seat frams are shot than you can't reupholster them and you don't have to cut the floor out to change the tanks.Kool project though
From my understanding the tank is out, no cokpit either. The first time I made contact with the seller. I almost fell off my chair when he told me $65K. We are much closer now
However some have to much money in there boats to actually realize what is the true
market value. I really didnt want to insult the seller. I realize i have more money in my engines then my hull is worth. I would need a serious tail wind to get 20K for my Hustler
bare hull with trailer. Its not about resale its about spending the least and getting the most.
Thats why these projects fire me up I can take a 20 year old relic and throw hours and short money at it and looks like I spent 300K on it. Then again If I had the money or the
balls to make the payments maybe I would be in a MTI or A Skater. Im playing with the hand I have. The only things I cannot change is the year and the lenth.

Yes you recognized it!!! Bob Morgan told me the same Story. I called him and aked if he had any hulls around that I could throw big power at and Arnesons. He gave me the lead.
Its a prime canidate for rough water big power.
Thats what started this.

Thanks for your help

I think the price on the hull is what this is all coming down to.
Wish my Hustler was as big as yours.

Gary Just got off the phone with Carl. Nice Straight up guy.
I am Emailing him a picture of this and he in return will send me some of the older one.
It sounds to good to be true. I think he told me there is no cabin. and it is setup with 4 seats to race. But heck for the price ya cant beat it. Do you remember the condition
of it ? Why didnt you pick it up?

Thanks Again Gary.
