    She's an 18 footer, BBC, Dominator. Seller claims fresh rebuild on pump, maybe....not a scratch on the impeller though, it and the shaft look brand new. Engine rebuilt (stock) a few years ago. It's been "barned" for the last 5 years with anti freeze. Interior is pretty bad but I will be able to get patterns from what is left over. Front seat are fiberglass Not as much wood work as I orignally thought. Carpet is very good but loose here and there. Bottom is rock solid except for one support area for the back seat. Pulled a couple freeze plugs, nothing but coolant, no sand. I've been looking hard to find the "oh shit" area but haven't found it....yet.....fingers crossed.

    Clear hopefully, would love to keep the retro colors....the top coat gel is way gone, bottom is nearly perfect though.

    So far, more fun than work. I'm guessing these would have been an easy sell (?), the craftmanship is top notch. From mid hull back to the transom is built pretty high compared to other jets of the era, would this be for keeping water out?

    Yes, it does. But it was just a new cool design for the time.
