This has my family boat for 10 years. It was unused in a barn and needed engine work, a prop shaft, floor, and other items. I bought it for $2000. Once I got it fixed up it has been a very good boat, very reliable and my kids plus a bunch of neices & nephews, friends etc, have learned to ski behind it. I took a thousand pounds (approximately) of soaked foam out of it this year. The person who owned it before me replaced the exhaust hose with the tubing used with garbage pumps. It failed and soaked the foam. But it is back in the water and running strong.
