Check out onlyinboards.com and ski-it-again.com for an idea of what S & S boats are going for. So much depends on condition, options, color, etc.

I'd say $12k Canadian max . . . and that's with trailer.
It's basically a 205DD with maybe a few added options. No mention of hours. The color doesn't help it alot.:rolleyes:

Ah. no. ;)
I've never had anyone complain about the pylon.

Maybe I missed it . . . but what's the issue with having the short stub of the pylon stick up behind the rear seat. I have the same hull and it's never in our way.
