85mc, you keep your boat looking nice. I love to see that. That how current are those pics? I also like the solid blue stripe down the middle of the bow. pcm 351? Are the rear speakers mounted or removable. I think I notice a star key chain. I have the same one from my 87'

I have owned the boat for 12 yrs. I bought it from a guy who lived on a private lake who owned it since new. It looks exactly like the day I picked it up. I cant believe how durable these boats are. It has a smooth as silk 351 (940 hrs)with a power slot and a shower. I put a 4 blade stainless on it about 4 yrs ago, awesome. The interior is original, there is a 2" rip in the drivers seat and the wood in the side panels could be re-done otherwise excellent shape. There is a few spiderwebs in the gel on the bow that were there when I bought it but have not got worse. The motor and bilge are spotless, the bilge area on these boats are white, when they are clean, it really sets the motor off. I have had 12 years enjoyable trouble free boating with this boat but I need one with more room so I am trying to find a used 197. I test drove a 2002 malibu 2 months ago but my wife wasn't ready to let go of the S&S yet so I didn't buy it. That's about it, oh yah the speakers are removable.
Grant.

Looks really nice.

What does it say in white letters at the very back of the boat...on the blue gelcoat?

It says competition ski boat at the back.
The racks are from a company called "ski stow" which should be called "ski toe" for the amount of times I have stubbed my toe on that f****** thing.

I'm sorry, I should have been more specific...at the stern of the boat it looks like it says something on the side--not the back above the platform. Doesn't look like there are enough letters to say that on the side??

It may say PCM in large letters and "powered by" in small letters. I know quite a few 1984's and probably 85's said that on both sides near the rear of the boat.

My 84 says that and looks very close. I have gray on blue. Nice looking boat!!

Sorry about the messy thread but the pictures and description of the boat are in here. The guy who wanted this boat is having trouble getting the money together so I will be listing it here and in Vancouver Craigslist for those who are interested. I recently bought an X9 so she has to go.

Nice looking boat.

If you want to be even more amazed put an OJ XMP 13.7x17.5 nibral 3 blade on it. This is a CNCd prop that will make the boat smooth as silk and give you even better hole shot and top end.

What are you asking for it?
