    Default one bad trip

    I was hoping to post pics of my new t-x 19 today but after driving three hours one way i show up to find the boat is in very rough shape. The gel coat was non existent very dull,steering wheel and gauges all shot,carpet trashed bassett headers very rusty,corrosion all over the engine,rusty air cleaners and the pump looked like a child got ahold of the caulk. The trailer i was told had just been sand blasted and painted and yes painted over the rust pitting with a bent tounge and no jack. Very dissapointed i was told this boat was in very good condition but now know the pics he sent must of been at least 10 years old maybe when he bought the boat but not recent. I had sent a deposit of $2750 and was happy to get it back after looking at the boat in person. That was not a fun ride home so i will keep looking for a nicer boat. oh and hello to every one i am new to the site i have read alot of good info on here before i tried to buy this boat so thank you.

    I would have been pissed for sure, to drive that far just to find out that the guy was just a liar!! Somebody would have had to suffer after that trip!! Good luck and keep looking, plenty of gems still left out there amongst the crap!!
