I don't think either of those is more desirable than the ther. I would just pick the one that could be brought up to snuff for the least money.

I agree. Check the stringers for rot since they are wood in anything older than 83 right?

I'd go 82 as well. Just based on appearance which, in the grand scheme of things is not worth very much

For some reason, the '82 makes me fell all warm and fuzzy inside, like it just has more "happy" left in it! Is that controversial enough!:rolleyes:

IMHO I think the windows look better on the 82 than the "Bubble window" on the 79.

"82" for sure but then I'm a little partial to the Blue on Blue!!!

If the stringers are good on both go with the 82. The blue flake looks great.

That 82 looks sweet. I think the square windshield fits the boat better thant the rounded windshield of the 79. Just my 2 cents.

82 looks like it still has the original interior i have the same boat when i redid my interior i found a 87 motorbox and replaced that BIG box that was in there gave me a little more room whats he asking 6500 would be a good buy
