Was cruising through CL (Albuquerque) and found my 1986 Advantage for sale, made a deal with the guy and met him in Williams and brought it back home where it belongs!
Boat is actually in pretty good condition for a 30 year old boat, I bought it brand new in 1986 and sold it in 2007 to buy a family boat(Cole Superhawk). It was great to see
my son driving it around, sold it when he was 15 now 23. This boat used to be pretty stout with a 13:1 468 in it! Stay tuned, after the kids get better at driving, we will be
putting some inches between the stringers.

It's a 87'. I have to say I think I like your color scheme a little more than mine. What are you putting in it for a motor?
