Too many to count.....

States it has 350 HP Vortec (MCX), but has a picture of the LQ9 and a canned picture of the MCX.

States it is a 2004, but the HIN indicates it is a 2003 manufactured in 2003.

Guess thats what happens when a car dealer that knows nothing about tries to sell it.


Maybe I should get one of those foghorns for mine.....

Not sure why the stock MCX pic is in the list. Love the 197 rated for 12....believe it or not it is true, mine is the same. Definately a 03, besides the vin #, the dash gives it away. If you could but it for 27k, it would be a great deal.

A boat being sold at a car dealership. There's something wrong about this in the first place. At least it's a Lexus dealership. Wonder what they traded it in on?

I guess technically it's an automatic transmission, and it does shift smoothly, but that's not something you usually hear about these boats.

Loved the part about the door dings.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I don't like the part about the door dings. I HATE when people let their shopping cart just roll downhill or push them toward the cart corral, not caring that it'll veer to one side and into someone's boat. Too bad the rub rail doesn't stop this better.

In that situation, I'm the guy in the VW commercial that comes running back and dives between the cart and the car (or, in this case, the boat).
