There were ALOT of things that were wrong, and some that just didn't make sense. Rust on the manifolds, cracked heater vent, hole by throttle in boat, paint chipped off windshield frame, etc.

Sounds like fairly small easy repairs.

How can you tell the buyer is from Michigan? I'm obviously not well-versed in Ebay.

If that thing got $21900 then mine's for sale tomorrow!

Go to the buyer of the boat's feedback and look for feedback from his buyers. When you click on an item number from something he has sold, it shows the item and also where it is located. He seems to be from Novi, MI.

Aha. I think I knew that, just didn't put much effort into it when I tried. Novi isn't too far from here. If I ever ran into it I'd have to check it out...

He could be >$4k better just by coming aboard! Probably will end up being a lot worse just looking at 87's pix, but I hope not.

In all fairness, it probably wouldn't have been a bad boat for a lot less money, I think the problem was that they were asking an insane amount for it. I mean mine is a lot older than that one, and I have a lot of similar issues, but I didn't pay that much so you live with it. For $21,000 that boat better be perfect!

You're starting to make me feel bad. :cry:

Sounds like some easy fixes though. Manifolds tend to get rusty, but usually last for a long time before they rust through if you take the steps to keep condensation from collecting in the motor box during storage. Windshields can be painted and powdercoated.

But it's worth passing over if you can get something that you don't have to do these things to for the same price.

Maybe someone should tell the dealer about whats going on on this board about that boat. Would be funny to be a fly on the wall when he reads thru 51 pages of banter about what a POS his boat is..... ;)

That would be quite amusing.

He would probably try and post it on the board for sale.
