o.k guys here is a update. always remenber that "truth is stranger than fiction"....we got the call from the dealer that bozo boy can get the boat for the price I offered. Now the next multi chose questions are.....

a/ he comes out of the closet and admits he is a hershey road driver. (because he is so happy)

b/ he makes another higher offer to the dealer ( against himself)

c/ buys the boat, and forgets where he parked it

Yea CC those pics are hideous. I might have to delete them.
We cant have people come to the site and view stuff like that. They would head for the hills.

Default Boat update

Update.

Drove to wildwood NJ about 3 1/2 hour drive to meet the surveyor. 28 bucks a foot. Worth every dime. Also paid for a sea trial. (Owner wouldnt pay customary half) Engine remarkably quiet and solid Yamaha 200 4 stroke. 6000 RPMs and 39 MPH cruising in the bay.

Boat had issues. Loose wires No horn. Cabin throttle not connected to engine nor compatable. Trailer rollers off line. Most fixable cept 1. Transom had small cracks and was hollow in areas. Obviously had been worked on. Parts of it sound traveled right through it. a 600 pound engine bouncing on the trailer and bam. I visualized it at the bottom of the drink, an $11000 motor. Needs a whole new rebuilt transom. Deal killer. walked away with my $5000 deposit and several hundred poorer but happy to know I didnt purchase a piece of chit. dissappointed but I want to turn the key and fish not wait till the dam things worked on. Ok plan B. runabout fot this season Next year or following year I get a better boat. :roll:

Thanks to T- bone Alvarez for the advice and happy birhday. Just have to book a trip aboard his "platinos" :P saltshaker.
