If it's in decent shape at all, you'd be an idiot not to buy it.

I'd buy it. 8K is a steal. You could probably get 14K for it if the hours were debunked.
And this!

Boat is worth way more than 8k!

tend to agree ... 592.8 ... no way it could be 5928 that I could see without several rebuilds/new install

We are good to go guys! Thanks for your help. As we all suspected, user error lol. My dad apparently can't read a tachometer.

So we are at 592.82 Hours currently. He said he replaced the tachometer, and that he thinks it may have reset to 0 when he did that. Does anyone have any experience with that happening? Or is it safe to assume that is the actual hours?

Either way, I'm so excited to be getting a Mastercraft!! My dream is coming true!

Not sure on the hour reset. I would assume they were reset to zero. My opinion on hours are different from others, when you're considering a boat this old, hours are the last thing to worry about.... A well cared for boat with high hours is worth way more than a low hour neglected boat. This boat is 21 years old, which means it has been winterized 21 times, thousands of miles towing, loaded/unloaded hundreds of times, etc....... Condition will tell you everything on this one, you can sneak by with a couple years of poor maintenance, but not 21!

Back to the hours, get a compression check on all cylinders if you need peace of mind, but from what I can tell from the pictures you will be way ahead at 8k buying this boat. You could have the engine rebuilt and still make money on resale at that price!
