    Default Good project?

    Just wondering if you guys think this would be worth the drive. I'm looking for a project boat and I came across this...

    Eliminator bubble decks are nice boats, a good friend of mine has one. Full stringers. That one looks like it's been strpped pretty good, no steering, no pump, no gas tanks, seems kind of odd someone would strip an Eliminator like that. Makes me wonder what the bottom, stringers, other major parts of the hull look like. I f you love the colors in the gel and the gel is in good shape it may be worth it to you, but not to me. IMO

    for me, i would talk him down to about 500, the pump is gonna cost ya. what are you gonna do with this boat, just get it going or fix it up nice? bought my anthony like this and cost me 10 grand to get it where i wanted it, but it was a nice looker. check on pump cost and such, looks like a fun project

    I think you can look around and get a better deal. Have you talk to the guy? Offer him $450 and see what he says. Tell him of all the parts that will have to be bought to make this a running boat. Don't tell him you have the parts.

    I talked to him, he said the boat is solid. Who knows though. Long way to drive for what it is.

    lookin at them pics, it looks like he may have had it stored inside. but i would keep looking unless you have 75% or more of the parts you'll need.
