well... guess he's just going to ignore my email as he still hasn't responded to my 1000 questions.

That thing is a POS that probably never was maintained and from the looks of it, has never has a nickle invested to maintain it. Probably overheated a few times because too cheap to replace the impeller every few years. Oil probably worse. That is a $5k boat and could be a gamble at that. Does it even run?

they claim it does... it would be an extremely long drive to new bern to even look at it really.
Surprisingly enough I just got a response from her. Said she's willing to negotiate on the price and has some service records.

Why are y'all dogging this boat? It's 15 years old and needs upholstery, most boats do by then anyway. So now you get new upholstery awesome. It's faded, 5 hours of labor and it looks new with less than $100 bucks worth of material, next problem? Can't see any, this boat has awesome potential. The price isn't bad for the boat. Another 2k of investment and its in great shape. Then you could sell it for 15k+.. Seems a few of you took after your mom's to much and can't turn a wrench! If the motor is sound you are good.

Not to mention the "non" factory trailer? For real? It's aluminum or galvanized (hard to tell from picture), I'd much rather it than the factory.

If price is cheap enough to cover the parts needed to fix it (and the risk you will take because you likely will find other things wrong as well) it would make a good candidate to flip- not own. Ive bought a few neglected vehicles before and although fixed them up, they never returned to "pristeen" condition and little things pop up from time to time cosmetically that are too expensive to make right. In the long run the aggrevation outweighted the financial gain (unless i was buying and intending to do a complete restoration on a classic car).

Best used vehicles i have every bought came from people who were passionate about what they owned and had the financial capability to properly maintain them. Garages so clean you can eat off the floor, shelves need and tidy, etc.

If close by may be worth the time investment to see it but she is so far above what that boat is worth that she will likely not come down far enough to make this a good deal. Especially if it just went on the market. Sometimes it takes sellers hearing the same thing over and over to realize their "jewel that just needs a little TLC" is really nothing but a turd.

12K way too much. Yay I can finally say that without getting yelled at! This is my boat I bought in March. I paid just a bit over 12K and its as close to perfect as you can get on a boat being 14 years old with 1640 hours.

Look at your hours and its a closed bow. I can make this boat look like yours in 2 weeks for less than 2k.

Also 2k and that interior can be replaced. Less if you do more of the work yourself.
