    Default 78 cole

    I am looking at a maybe buying a 78 Cole arent they good hulls to make fast and is there any thing I should look for before I buy it. It is being sold with out the motor but everything to install a BBC including over tramsom headers and I have a 454 ready to install the paint looks ok and the seats look ok form what I can see in the pics it is close so I will be able to look close at it asking price is 2100. The 1/4 stringer Tahiti is fun but I want to go faster only looking for around 90

    Thanks for any help you may offer Later Eric

    If you buy it, you'll have a new best friend from Conroe.

    I thought it may have been his boat that Eric was looking at..... maybe the WD-40 thing got to be too much for the boy & was getting rid of it before he went insane.....

    That Cole probably has more potential for speed/handling than the old Tahiti, wouldn't you think?
