Give us the details. I love the lines. How fast, how many hours, what condition? How about some interior shots, engine compartment.

Well, its lived a hard life. I am the 3rd owner. The first owner was docking it right after buying it and caught a bold with the hull. It was traded in on another one, repaired and sold to my co-worker who bought it with 4 hours on it. He put 220 hours on it over the next 19 years until it was hit in a boat yard by a skid steer. It broke the bell housing and gimbal ring. I was paid by the owner to fix it with all new parts, then as soon as it was done he decided he didn't want it and sold it to me. He was not easy on the interior ( left it uncovered a lot) so it needs some interior work, but it is far from shot. It has a Merc 330HP 454 with a bravo 1 running a Hydromotive prop and will do 60 all day long. I need to get the trim tabs working and the helm strait before I try to go faster. The plan is to redo the interior, get some spider cracks filled and then redo the vinyl. New gauge panel as well. Not bad for $4500 ....

Sounds like this poor boat finally has the right owner.

Honestly it has been a reliable boat. It has never left me sitting anywhere and has always been quick to start. It does have its gremlins, but for the price I paid and the lack of maintenance up until this point I have no regrets in buying it. It will be a nicer boat than I would have ever been able to afford at this point in my life ( I'm 28) and still turns heads when I pull up to the dock.

That's more than I can say for mine. It looks great, but discovered the fuel gauge is only accurate on the trailer (in the middle of Lake Huron). Blew the drive twice, again in the middle of Lake Huron. I have tow insurance paid up. But if your not breaking something you're not having fun.

Well, a 22 with stock power on inland lakes has a pretty easy life lol.
