    Default Did i get a good deal or screwed???????????

    About a month ago I purched my first boat....it's a 86 21 ft Kachina (don't know what kind though a daycruiser or whatever other styles ther are...I dont know the differnce, how can I tell) .....anyways, it has a stock Ford 460 with a marine card (4 br Holley) and distributor with inbore headers. It has a Berkeley 12jg jet with a jetovator (gives me a prety good rooster tail). It came with a double axle trailer in very well working conditions, binini top, 7 life jackets, marine fire extinguisher, paddles, anchor, CD player, 2 Optima batteries, 2 15 gallon fuel tanks, all new guages, and the hull is intact. Boat runs like a champ and I got it up to 58 MPH which is cool with me cuz I just wanted a cruiser for the family. I paid a whopping $2500 for it and I didn't have to do anything to it...it was turn key rready and already took it out 4 times and no problems....the only thing I did to it was install a 4 degree wedge for a little more rooster tail. SO WHAT DO U GUYS THINK............did I get a good deal since this is my first jet boat and I'm new to the jet boating world and loving it.

    lets see pics. If you and your family are having a great time on the water you really cant put a price tag on that.

    Congrats and enjoy!

    We drink Alcohol,
    And we go racing with Nitro-Methane!

    looks like a great find! but like 429 said you cant put a price on what makes you happy. I will tell you I paid alot more for mine but I have a blast with it.

    Default you didn't...

    get screwed at all- I paid around the same for mine and still had to do some glasswork find an engine, exhaust, and go through the pump. I think you did darned good.

    I'm in South GA and boats like these are very rare where I'm at down here.
    Enjoy it!!

    for 2500 bones just have fun.

    If it runs is relaible and doesnt sink you're way ahead.

    You will find your fun per dollar ratio wont go much higher than this in the boating world.

    Under 3k with good upholstery, a diverter, non leaky tanks, etc.
    Enjoy it, because you sir made a fine purchase.
    I bet a little buffer action on that gel coat will really make it pop
