    Default NewBe From Oceanside CA

    Hello,
    Newbie from Oceanside Ca. I 'm looking at a1965 Stevens Flat with 389 Pontiac GTO motor. The boat is very clean. I'm very excited to get it. Having a hard time with the wife she wants a cattle Boat. I need some words of wisdom. When I was 19 I had a Howard Flat with a BB 427 so I know how the boat rides and what to expect. I'm 59 and needing another Flat to have some fun. I would like know what do you think the boat is worth. It is clean as can be runs great sitting on the original tandem trailer. Just looking for a Range. It seats 4 with the Edlebrock exhaust through the transom.
    It's been completely Refurbished and new paint. I look forward to all comments .
    I will post Pic's here as soon as I get the boat.

    Dont buy emotionally .... the value will be definitely be over inflated from that point.

    Check the boat out, floors, stringers for dry rot - any boat can be clean with alot of hidden damage.... value could be $2k -$10K dependent upon so many things. If you can take it to a reputable boat shop that deals with these boats then do it and have them give it the once over and make a list of everything it needs. They all NEED something.

    Good Luck
