    any word on the bottom? how about the pump? its a project, but since your southwind is still running you can fix this one up and still have a ca-ruiser ya know? is the transom rotted? just a few things to report back on while you're there! haha! hopefully its a solid deal for you to get into bro!

    YumaJet, I've been looking for a 19' for a long time and that one has been for sale for a while now. When you look at it make sure you dont get all excited about getting it just because its a Daytona. Look at it like any old boat and add up what it will cost to fix it. I'm not saying its a bad deal, I havnt seen it in person. But, theres some realy great deals out there now.






    BTW, I paid less then that for my 21' project with a 300hp outboard on it. And there is another member here that paid less then that for his 21' project also.

    The gel is rough, we know that.

    Lets see more pics, bottom, intake, etc. If the boat is sound and has potential it could be a good boat down the road. The stringers are cut down for a back seat which kinda sucks but can be dealt with. I remember it being discussed in the SPAM section a while back, when it was up for sale then it looked like it had the race type bottom meaning it had the low lift reliefs in it, hopefully those were put in when they built the boat and its not an after thought. If it was done as a modification you can only hope whoever did it knew what they were doing or you will be babysitting it non stop repairing it all the time.. Im 90% sure it was done in the mold which is a good thing.

    thanks again for your opinion tom and the rest of the crew here. he was dead set on $5k and wouldnt even budge to $4500. it definately needs a lot of work with the floors, complete paint job, bulk head rotted and a few questionable repairs on each sponson and a few extra holes on the thin balsa stringers. the pump was "recently" rebuilt over 13 years ago too. i felt like he wanted to get some money back, so im going to pass. ive seen gullwings, minus motor, is much better condition for a lot less. either way, im not going to bad mouth, just writing what i saw and hope he gets the $5k.
