Information On Condition

The boat has spent most of its life in fresh water on the Great Lakes. Garage kept for 40+ years. Clean interior with carpeted floors. No rips or tears in any of the cushions or seats. Per the Seller: Mechanically sound. Runs great! Engines are clean.

The hull and gel coat are in great condition along with the props and shafts... much better than expected for a 48yr old boat. There are some issues with the top structure along with leaking water and mold in the front section of the boat cabin. The top of the bow and some windows might need some work.

Two new 50-gallon, stainless steel fuel tanks - totaling 100 gallons. New 50-gallon, stainless steel water tank. New strainers for both engines.

Approximate boat location: Chattanooga, Tennessee
