Something doesn't look right to me on this, but I can't put my finger on it. Any ideas?

Saw this on E-bay; my dad is interested and was thinking of watching it, possibly bidding. Thought I would run it by you revenge experts and pass on your comments to him.

Thanks in advance.

I'm hardly an expert. The bow rail isn't what I was expecting to see. I'm not sure if the windshield looks right to me. And the companionway and console doors aren't correct.

It's (almost) all there, original bow rail, windshield, doors, etc. The seats are obviously not original nor is the rub rail but other than that it is just the boot stripe, topside stripe and unfortunate bottom paint color that make it look odd.

It will probably sell for $5k-$8k.

I'll bet that if you went down there with 47 100 dollar bills in hand that you could drive it back to NY after a test drive. That's not a bad looking boat. The 120hp is a little small(rated for 200hp) but would push her along just fine. The trailer is ready for the trip.

Tis true Sheila you are not an expert. Everything is original except what Tom pointed out and even the rubrail might just be a newer HD version but who knows.

Not a bad $4-5k boat/motor/trailer package. The trailer is worth $2k alone, and the boat is largely unadulterated, with none of the usual stuff missing (ladder, bulkhead doors, etc.). For that price, I could even live with the blue bottom paint!

Agreed, Nick...

....and Tom provided the correction with such tact :)

My dad decided not to bid. He felt a trip to pick it up would have been too much for him at his age. Winning bid was $3849. Anyone here get it?

Pretty good deal, complete boat, newer trailer less than $4k.

I would think this time last year a boat like this would have gone for nearly twice what it sold for. I think this shows just how poorly the entire boating industry is at the moment.
