    Had a 1988 of that boat up until three years ago. Sold it to a buddy who still has it. What do you want to know about them.

    Tim is there anything I should look at closely? Hull issues or things like that? Other then those things how did you like your boat? I just don't see much about them online and I don't want to buy a lemon. Thanks.

    I'd have to say if there were any manufacture issues, they would've been repaired by now. That's an old boat, if it were a "lemon" it would've been chopped up long ago.

    Hull seems to be very solid. The one I owned doesn't even have any stress cracks to this day and the boat has around 700 hours on it. Check the floor, dog house, and seat base wood very closely. They didn't seem to seal the wood very good and it dry rots. I replaced a section of floor where the ski locker door and ice chest meet. The seat bases on the back jump seats. And the sides of the dog house. Check all of the seat bottoms for cracking and dry rotting also. Besides the wood issues replaced a couple of cables and had the jet rebuilt once and that was the only money I had to put into it. I would still own mine to this day but back in 2003 when John West built his 22' stealth and I saw it I knew I wanted one so I had one built in 2010.
