One thing I noticed was the photos of the boat being "driven" don't include the registration numbers or the damage to the bow. Probably taken by the PO of the boat.

Florida boats can be a real crap shoot. Salt water, long seasons, high heat and pouring rains let along a rich guys kids can ruin a good boat quickly. Doesn't look like this one has seen an easy life. Nor does he mention how many hours were on the boat before the engine was replaced. I'd pass unless you like to work on projects and you can get it for a song.

I also like the "make me a cash offer" line. Sounds like people locally haven't been too interested.

Or they can be a gem and a steal... you have to go see the boat in person if you are really interested.

I agree. Doesn't look like a well maintained unmolested boat to me. Not to many shots of the new motor. What's under the output flang on the tranny? From the pic it looks like a rag soaked with tranny fluid.

I too have been watching that boat, and had the same questions. However, any cost savings would quickly dissolve bringing it to the west coast. And the new motor is sketchy to me as well.
