Hey guys I have a question.. my neighbor has a 1975 Rogers Jet boat with a gullwing bottom on it and a Berkley jet.. it has a 460 engine.. boat isn't in too bad of shape just been sitting under a tarp for the last 4-5 yrs.. hull looks solid stringers as well.. seats are in useable shape, carpet fair.. all gauges in dash.. un molested original boat ... rogers worth much in decent shape in running condition? can pick it up for 1000.00 just don't know if this is a good hull or what.. any info on Rogers hulls would be appreciated
I guess I'd look at it like this, If I could put a rogers on the water in good usable shape for a TOTAL of $3500, I'd be pretty happy. That being said the purchase price should reflect how much your going to put in to it. I would feel comfortable offering him more provided there were no serious issues.
Bummer.. just got back from neighbors who said boat was for sale.. then find out its a friend of his that's storing it at their place.. guy said he plans on fixing it but in the meantime its starting to weather outside under a tarp.. front of the hull is full of water..
