Information On Condition

The seller says this boat is ready to hit the water and fly when you are.

For an older boat this one looks to be in good condition. There seems to be some type of adhesive that came into contact with the parts of the bow and has turned brown. That may be removable but caution is urged.

As always, we urge you to send us all your questions.
