A buddy called me about this boat, I always get skeptical of approx HP ratings especially with claims above 400hp. I also don't know much about later model Tahiti's, so I told him I'd ask if anyone here knew about this ride. Are these hulls decent? Full stringer? Issues to watch for? Thanks

That's an interesting boat! Definitely wouldn't touch it with out a very close inspection. A few things you don't normally see in a West Coast jet boat is "wood floors and leather seats." It looks like someone took some seats out of a little mini van or something. I agree with you on not believing anybodies H.P. rating with out documentation, assume it's a bone stock, worn out, 2 bolt BBC unless they can prove different. As far as the hull, they are another splash of Southwind I believe, not sure if it's full stringer or not, but doubt it. Tahiti boats are decent if the price is right, and for me that price would be around 3000.00 give or take a couple bucks. JMO. good luck
Saw that boat running around CFW couple years ago. From what I remember, he was running it in circles all day with the tail up. Seemed like it was running ok back then. The interior looks a little off, none of it really looks like it was intended to be in a boat.
