Boats are like camp sites: always leave 'em nicer than you found them.....:garfield:

Still - would be a better much better starting point than some of the barn find/project boats we see.

Jay,

This owner apparently is unaware of the campsite analogy.

Don't have the whole story

but I think it goes something along these lines

the yahoo I sold her to ran her hard and put her away wet. I saw her right after I sold her in his slip with the rub rail hanging off the back. he ran her up on a stump or aground and toasted the solas I sold it with( as well as being escorted off the lake on a few ocassions) . he then puked the motor and had a wild 351 built and ran her too hard before break in and puked that motor too then he sold her. this seller is the owner after that and looks to have put new center risers and rebuilt the motor. So this owner isn't the real abuser as far as I know.


a friend who ran the marina told me not to get worked up about it he said his money was green wasn't it ? yeah it was just about as green and the grumble green wearing thru the paint :rolleyes:

Matt,
Tough to look at if that was my boat I would be looking for a large puke bucket. My old ski sporter 16-600 was sold to someone who was aware of the campsite analogy. I pulled the plug on the season yesterday following the last ride and took these pictures on my way out. My old boat is in better than new condition and the pictures do not do the boat justice.

That's exactly why when I sell something I have the potential owner fill out my "Application To Purchase" form. If I think you will destroy it I don't sell it to you!
