Soft spot between the observer and drivers seat where everyone steps getting behind the wheel.
Two repaired gel coat scratches in the bottom edges of the hull.

4 speaker marine CD player with audio in jack, teak wood swim deck oiled regularly. Length 19 ft plus 2 ft swim deck. Original graphics, swim deck and gel coat. Motor mount bolts are solid. Motor runs like a top.

Includes tandem axle trailer, new tongue jack, wheel bearings repacked September 2019, LED lights all work. Two new tires. Included with the boat...unless I the price any further, then it will be without the trailer so I can recoup some of my losses.

A little history...

Our family boat is this 1985 CC Ski Nautique 2001. My daughter and I work on it together as a rewarding educational tool as well as reliable lake toy for the whole family. We bought it a few years ago in Pennsylvania where it was stored in an indoor dry storage and launched by forklift. It has the original interior that has some wear from more than 30 years of enjoyment, the teak wood swim deck is in great shape and we keep it looking good by oiling it regularly. I bought it after some research and long developed love for the simplicity, sound and reliability of inboard boats.

My daughter and I really needed a focused and rewarding way to spend time together. She got her boating license by taking a course and test. We cleaned everything. As we cleaned we fixed things, changed fluids, took the prop to be reconditioned, ran new lines for the speedometers, put on new speedometer pick ups, new vent grilles, fuel line, and cleaned the fuel tank she learned a great deal.
The time together is valuable. We use marine fuel stabilizer with every tank of gas while enjoying wake boarding though it is nice having an affordable boat that will tow anything, one or multiples at the same time.

Message for questions. No tower. Simple. Reliable. Fun!
