Photos of gel coat would be good if possible.

At 9:39pm on May 15, 2020, ken schmithorst said…

What is the general condition of the gel coat?

I know there are areas that need repair, but what about overall? Any spider cracks? Will waxing be all that is needed? Will it need to be buffed out?

I am also struggling with a price. Looks like I will have quite a few expenses after purchase. I could have a lot more into boat than I could get out of it. How is the fuel tank? Is it showing any pitting? Also the bearing where shaft go thru the strut? Not sure what it is called.

I haven't given up on your boat.  I have found a used closed fwc system from a 350 q. Do you have any idea if it would match up to your jasper engine?

Are there receipts for purchase of Jasper engine? And is it a marine engine? 

At 3:33pm on April 25, 2020, ken schmithorst said…

And what is condition of fuel tank?

At 3:31pm on April 25, 2020, ken schmithorst said…

Would it be possible to scan survey and e-mail?

If too much of a hassle that's okay.

Cosmetic repairs I am not too worried about. I just don't want to get into engine, transmission or electrical problems. 

Thanks for your time.

I am planning on using boat in local waters including upto 2 to 3 miles out into Gulf of Mexico. Are there any updates that would need to be completed to make boat safe and seaworthy?  How many hours on engine? Transmission?  Any info on previous owners? Has boat always been in freshwater?

At 3:39pm on April 23, 2020, ken schmithorst said…

Good suggestions.  How many people can boat cruise with? 

At 12:25pm on April 23, 2020, ken schmithorst said…

I am interested, however,  need to work on a fresh water flush out system or a fwc conversion.  You have any info on either?  Also, need to find a trailer at a reasonable price. What is weight of boat? and beam?  You have any resources?   

You at Harbour Towne or 4 seasons.  Seems like a steep increase  esp in todays climate.
