Lucked out...random craigslist search WAY out of my area turned this up and it just got better from there. 2000 205, original owner w/91 original hrs. I drive a 1000 miles with check in hand and cautious optimism.

Dude builds and races vintage cars and is an absolute fanatic. Boat is spotless, records are perfect, 100hr service done 8months ago, trailer hubs are greased in anticipation of a sale and the deal is done for 12.5K. It never happens like this...EVER!

It never..ever happens this way. When someone says "clean" I expect clean and I'm almost always disappointed. I actually feel like a thief but I think I'll get over it. It's my family's first boat and we're very excited. On my way back up North I had to stop in Boise for business for three days. Dropped it off at the local MC Dealer for fluid change so we're ready to drop it in when I'm back next week. Thanks for all the info you guys provide; I hope to be a contributor some day soon.

Dude, you should be arrested for stealing, because you stole that boat!! $12.5k w/91 hours, wow! I have the same year and model and love it. Congrats.

Wow! Looks brand new. It's got to have been reassuring to trust a racer that the hubs & brakes were in good shape for the haul home.

Well done...

I didn't do anything except make the phone call and the drive. I can't take credit. Most of these are bogus and sketchy. It's the one time in the last two years that I made the call and moved on it. Previously I had been waiting to make the call so the masses could have their chance before I did with the hope that I'd be dealing with a "real" seller by that time. I missed a local deal at 16K and change by one call last year and was kicking myself until now. Lucky guy and I know it...I think I deserve it. Stupid lucky but I'll take it any way I can get it!

I agree with BriEOD, the police are looking for you. Most importantly it's a great looking boat in great shape, but at that price - man what a deal!

Not only did you get a great deal but you also snagged what I would consider one of the best all around boats in MC history IMHO! You are going to love it.

You talked the owner down $7,400 over the phone. That's unbelievable!
