I was a boat mechanic for years, and you can't always trust the gauge. Hook up a laptop to it to get the true number. (not saying he's lying, but i've checked out boats for guys before and the hours were different on the gauge than the computer)

They normally do this if you have the M/C dealer do a owner transfer inspection. Good investment as they look over all items on the boat to determine if any issues or items a new owner should be aware of. This includes verifying the ECM matches the hr guage on the tach. Did this with my purchase and was well worth the investment for the piece of mind. In the case the seller is asking top dollar, I'd expect the seller to pay to correct anything of concern as part of the purchase price.

I don't know if it's the same boat, but it looks about the same.

Wow... It does look exactly like that boat being for sell in 2010.. The seller stated he has only had the boat for a year, so I'm not sure if he was the the one who got scammed (if this truly is the same boat) or he is the one doing the scamming..

Here's the pic he sent me yesterday..


AND I noticed SNORK posting on that same thread as well.. Weird.

Well, after looking over a couple pictures (because it was driving me crazy), I found a couple differences in the boats.. Main one I noticed was the grey trim around the rub rail on the CURRENT boat for sale..

First pic is old boat, 2nd boat is the current one listed:
