Boy, the interior looks like it would take 3 sheets of skin off your arse on a hot summer day.

Nice boat, it just looks like its missing something I dont know what but the exterior just seems empty.

To each his own, quality job none the less I cant argue that.

I don't know a whole lot about the older boats but it looks like a pretty good deal.

Unique looking boat.

Is the prop (http://www.use.com/ed27ea6e794e570c9805?p=19#photo=19) about to fall apart, or is that just something hanging on it?

That's killer sea weed. It is taking over everything.

It looks good but the decal does not look straight.

Tower looks like hell on that boat.

Any tower looks like hell on a 190, but your right... especially that one.

Agreeed, tower looks like crap on that boat. But easy fix to remove. Heck sell the brand new tower for a grand and the boats a better deal.

Agreed, get an extended pylon and get that eye sore off of there. I really dig the exterior color, graphics should have been moved forward or something, just missing something, would have liked to see the whole trailer in silver but, who am I to judge. Nice work none the less.

just missing something

Stars might be good with metal flake and the round emblem aft. Nice job on the motor, kinda seems the boat is confused a bit on want it wants to be. Just never get the tower on a boat like this, seems sacreligious to me. ;)

All that bling on the motor and they cheap out on the rubber fuel line from the pump:confused:

Definitely interesting. Get rid of the tower, and replace the teak platform with a glass platform painted to match with a color coordinated Sea Dek pad.

Doubtful since a new Monster MT1 (Pretty sure it's an MT1 but could be an MTE) is only $799.

Also, it's drilled for that exact width boat. So, you'd have to sell it to someone with the same hull or they'd have to modify it.

So, I'd say best case you could sell it for $500 or less.

Just toss it in the dump and get the boat's glass and gel fixed. To me, it's a deal breaker.

I'm more of a traditional MC fan, since I had the ole 84 stars and stripes, but this boat is a well done conversion!

Clean boat, horrible tower, and not original graphics... I am more of a traditional stars and stripes fan myself...

If he asking 11.5 for this boat wonder what the "80" LTD restoration would bring in?

Sometimes there is a big difference between the asking price and the selling price. I think this might be the case. Its an interesting boat, but not worth the premium for someone's custom idea. Might be worth that much to the owner, but...........

Well said. I personally think it is ugly (maybe it's the tower that is doing it). Sorry in advance to all the people I will offend. Remember my opinion. They state it has been totally redone from the ground up. Guys look close you'll see a handful of items that myself and everyone else would have done different.

I don't want to knock anyones hard work. But, I would guess that this job was not the work of one person.

I too am more for the older boats being brought back to original.

I suppose there is someone out there that thinks this is the ultimate custom creation. Might be hard to find that guy. I guess that is the hazard of doing custom work.

I'm sure a LOT of time and money went into that boat, but it's not doing it for me. I would have liked to see a boat like that restored to the way it rolled out of the plant. I have no problems putting towers on some of the older boats, but not THAT tower on THAT boat.
I'm sure that someone will be happy with it.
Like Covi said "It's just my opinion". Opinions are like butt h@les, we all have 'em........
