The windshield is indeed missing: http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=56966

The fact they didn't disclose that in the ad says a lot to me...

I'd go dollars to doughnuts he swapped the hour meter then. Dishonesty is rarely a shallow pool.

Hmmmm, that seems to be a big jump.... I don't know the seller, but a missing piece of glass doesn't automatically make the seller a liar and a cheat.

It makes him dishonest... It's the old 'he didn't lie, he just didn't volunteer the truth'.

I wouldn't buy anything off a guy like that.

it doesn't mean he switched the hour meter. That's a big jump.

No... it doesn't mean he switched the hour meter...

It's not that big of a jump for me, perhaps because I've caught people and dealers alike that you would never suspect, doing it.

When it's buyer beware, I don't trust anyone.

There's a barefoot 200 that's roaming around a thread on here, that was on a cl for $500. Really beat up. I contacted the owner about a possible refurb project. Nice guy. Sent me a ton of pics. Turned out the transom was badly cracked and needed replaced. I passed. Someone else bought it, dropped a motor on it, and it is now on another Craigslist for $4500, and either the guy selling doesn't know enough about boats to know he's gonna be screwing somebody, or he's Ok with it. Most likely the latter since he knows enough to get a motor rigged on it.

I'm not accusing anybody of anything, I'm only saying I wouldn't trust it personally. There's too many great boats out there to not trust the guy you're buying it from.

I was in the boat business for almost 10 years, and I've been around and in competition ski boats my entire life. There's no lack of shady deals out there. Not everybody is as honest as you or I Scott.
