    Default pics of boat im looking at buying? 17ft texas tunnel

    Was wanting to know a little about this boat whom the owner has never run it since he bought it. I measures 16 ft 11 inches from tip of sponson to transom.

    Has an emblem on the back that says limited edition.

    Has a few stress cracks, one on the back transom. Wondering if these stress cracks are serious enough to worry about or not. Boat is made out of carbon fiber and should be a 325 lb hull.

    What speed can this boat be run at without handling problems. AT one time it belonged to a guy named scotty and was run at blithe lake.
    What is it worth with trailer. Pump is supposedly been redone with new style inducer and stainless impeller and large shaft.
    Any info is greatly appreciated and anyone knowing about it can call me at 318-687-9088.

    Can carbon fiber stress cracks be repaired reasonably like fiberglass? thanks gary

    I haven't seen many short boats that look better than that one.

    I remember seeing it bbc blown injected.....and thinking that's way to much engine.

    Very sharp looking for sure.......unsure about the handling though.

    Pull up Sailor! my hug card is full!
    I just found that this Avitar to quite amusing and am curious to see how long it will be able to "stay and play"? I could see how some may take it in a negative light, but I personally find it to be a breath of fresh air!
    Lets just say that this is how I feel towards the economy right now!
    Carry on

    Personally I think you should've used your own boney finger Todd.

    I've got a picture of that crooked digit here somewhere.
