Obviously he knows what he is doing. That's WHY its on Craig's list not in OUR classifieds!

Shame theres folks like that but there is no shortage of them.

Swampcracker, do a search, it was a while back but there was a "badass" boat on ebay, it was a STEAL for $9,999 if I remember right. I believe it had a mattress as a front rake, the cage consisted of several pieces of different types of fencing, if memory serves me correct there was a lawn chair as one of the seats. The DD oldsmobile? 307 or maybe a sbc 305 was "professionally built" at some race shop and had like 800 hp LOL This thing was beyond a joke. I don't even know what to search for to try and find it, but there is a thread on here and it is awesome!

Yea Yobee, I was thinking the same thing.
Wasn't the grass rake on that one made out of garage door sections?
Yup, only outdone by the pieceworked (out of chainlink fence) cage material. :lol: :lol:

Well, If he comes down another 8k, and will pay someone 6k to come get it, I will go look at it. :mrgreen:

no had a few tire kickers but that's it . I just hate re-rigging for my new motor and seat package personally I'd rather just build whole new boat a foot wider, but I'm not in a rush she still runs good and gets me where I want to go when I have time

Now Plum I gotta agree with ya but these new guys on here all think it ought to come with a 10 year warranty against anything and shouldn't cost more than 500 bucks tops... LOL

but it is a car engine on it probably a DD I see the rafiator up high on the cage ... so wouldn't expect much except a glades style hull deckover with a trailer of sorts but you never know it could be a bad a$$ engine put on by someone who didnt know ...
Don't waste your time ... it is the only thing you can't get more of
.. if it accidentally looks like I gave advice please ignore it .. and notify me immediately
