    Cool

    The pics don't show everything I'd like to see but what they do show looks pretty clean. Even has the bench seat, wow. Did you see the hull type listed as, "Semi-Hydro?" Funny.

    Curent bidder is maxed out at $3000 and the next bid will take over the current bidder....don't ask me how I know.

    Love these hauls, just have never seen one with a gel/pain job i liked. If this hull was base white rather than that yellow it would look much nicer! Too bad it's not, i would probably be all over it!

    To be honest, your not going to find what your looking for in a gell graphic. These were all over the place when they were done. Remember it was the late 70's and early 80's when they were built. They gell coat guy liked what he was doing with the targets and did'nt want them to resemble the other boats out there at the time. There were a few that were custom done, but for the most part it's not like today when you get a say in your colors and design. You just told them what colors you wanted and you got what you got.
