Actually, that's a Baja SunSport. I am only the 3RD owner of this very spoiled '88 19-1/2' Baja runabout called Plum Crazy. The boat has lived in heated storage its entire life and been trailered to and from fresh water for use, never staying in the water overnight. Because it shows like a very new boat, people are always amazed to learn it's age.

New install in April, '08 is a 270HP Volvo Penta with a fresh long block. It runs mid-60's with this power thanks to a blueprinted hull, an Alpha SS drive, and a Mirage Plus 23P prop, labbed by Bblades. The drive was gone through just as a preventative measure and reassembled with new gears, even though there were no signs of any problems. All engine and drive work was performed by Valley Motorsports, http://www.valleymotorsports.net (http://www.valleymotorsports.net/), a very reputable high-perf shop in the Twin Cities.

The helm is entirely new. Wiring is all new and installed all new gauges, new steering, and a new shifter. The custom aluminum dash panels were powder coated burgundy by Dana Marine Products to match their glove box door and steering hub, as well as the hinges and vents on the custom lightweight fiberglass hatch.

The boat has 3 covers; a full snap-on trailer cover, a snap-on bow cover, and a slip-on lightweight garage cover. There's also a bimini top with matching cover.

Other notable features included with the boat are a Simrek drive shower, an automatic fire extinguishing system, a spare prop, and thru-hull exhaust with Shotgun mufflers.

The matching Yacht Club trailer is in fine condition as it has also been stored indoors its entire life. Recently, I installed a new axle and springs, new hubs/bearings, new aluminum wheels and radial tires, new galvanized fenders, new bunks/carpet, and a new jack.

This was my first boat and I love it, but my wife and I are ready to step up to a larger boat with a cabin and twins. You won't be disappointed! Asking $11,500. Contact me at busterbella@yahoo.com Boat is located in LaCrosse, WI area.

Hey, I know this boat! It used to run mid 80's. What happened to the spray motor?

I guess it must have "sprayed."
