Default Sunseeker Apache

A friend of mine is looking at a 1996 Sunseeker Apache
502x3 stock power. Any info from the expert forum members
would help. Lets hear it.

Phantom Chaos here on OSO has almost the same vintage boat; same engine package. I am sure he can share some info with you. I know he had to rebuild the top-end on his center engine, and he has done a few other odds and ends, but from my two times on the boat, it is very, very nice.

A friend has the same boat and it is very nice. He also had issues with the center engine and ended up replacing with 496 Mags. It runs well and has very nice finish work. But tell him to have the center engine carefully checked before purchase. I never did find out what the deal is with the center engine but maybe Norty can shed some light on it for you.
