Wally,

That's how I recognized the boat as well. From what I was told, the owner lived out east (MD or CN) and boated on a river. He must have taken the boat down to FL at least once - there are a number of folks on here that do that same thing.

In any case, I'm told that the current power (502's) are 1993 models out of the current owners old Cigarette, and they are Lake Michigan (freshwater) motors. The rigging(?) in the engine compartment sure doens't look like a heck of a lot of time was spent on it, that's for sure... probably nothing a few calls and some money spent at Trick Marine couldn't fix.

i looked at that boat in the fall at the car lot. it does have new paint. cockpit is very small. looked like it had been it salt water before. it has a little rough.did not see the engine compartment and i think it did have maryland #'s on it. i personaly think 45 is a little high.

Ya, I saw that boat and stopped to, thought the price was a little high, I told the saleman that, he then looked at my 95 escort and walked away what a jerk I thought I was figuring in the low 30's, Buck
