If one becomes available, would you buy it? Would you pay low, average or high NADA price? there was one on ebay about 2 weeks ago, open bow and a closed bow on boat trader online. Both going for $45K (I thinK). No tower, no bimini, just the basic boat and trailer. I'm looking, but if there's too much competition then we can't afford one.
Why, why not, etc?
Of course if I'm lucky enough to get one then our 04 X7 will be for sale soon after. So if you know of anyone looking for a good used X7 black, o/a 430 hours, tell them to stand by. I'm Hoping by July 4th, we'll see.
Please email amonette516@comcast.net
Thanks

I would buy one in a heart beat, if the price was right. And I would buy one because it is a bad arse boat! The graphics, the hull, the wake, and the power will all blow your mind! Especially with the LQ9 :woohoo: (Am I exhibiting buying signs?)


Expect to pay high value, or more as time passes. Only if it has been maintained, and is in SHOWROOM condition.

I know that there is one for sale in Michigan, that is on boat trader.

i would just stay with the 04 x7, your paying more for less imho. its just bling factor. you have more stuff on your boat and its really nice.the lq9 is not all that much better than the mcx unless your footin hardcore or jumping.

I would buy one in a heartbeat too!! Unfortunately Iím not in the position to do so right now. (thatís my dam dream boat your looking at)

I would think due to limited availability and depending on condition, they may go for a bit over HR.

One less person in the market for my dream boat;) ..

You could always keep the 205....no kids on a pimpin boat like a S&S!!! AND NO DORITOS!

I thought that was weird when I saw JR do it, but now I know where he got it from....j/k.


It's going to be awhile before I can touch one of these S&S boats, and it makes it tough when you can get a 2006 197 loaded out for less than a 2003 S&S.

UMP, you have quite the list going....2006 TT, 2005 197, and now a 2003 S&S.

More power to you if you can own them all at some point.

That 03 197 is one of my two dream boats.

I think it's another brand, that's why he's not allowed to say.

I would love one too. I probed the wife when they came available and she was pretty negative about another new boat so I told her I could wait till 08 or 18 at the latest for a 50th.

The 35ths are dream boats all the way.

I bid on ebay for an 03 S&S last week that seemed really nice. Auction closed without reaching reserve and I was the high bidder. Email'd the seller and said I was interested but he was a real puddwhacker about telling me what the boat had on it (vaque ad on ebay) and told me I had to buy it then he'd tell me what it had. He wanted 45k for it, I told him he was nuts and I was nuts for wasting my time checking in on it.

J, Congrats on the new ride! Is it posted anywhere? Didn't know that you pulled the trigger.

It is a great looking boat, I just don't like black. Hope they do red in 08'.

Actually Erk, the 35th is at the top of the list. A TT boat would be awesome too, but a 35th is the schiznit. If I had the funds, I would fork it out for one withouta doubta. Payments scare me! so no 35th for UMP, unless I win the lottery or find a money tree. :(

I thought at least some of them came with the MCX? Is that right, Erk?

Yes, I would agree with that :)


If there happen to be one to get posted with the 8.1 L engine while I'm away, it is up to you guys to inspect it and then call me so I can buy it.

It's all yours. Too rich for my blood (and I'd want the MCX). The 03 and 93 S&S 190s are two of my favorite boats.

Yes, Erk, I wont get in a bidding war with you :) but if I win the lotto soon, look out! ;)
