I'm not 100% sure but I think the owner of that boat was trying to sell that boat for a lot more money then it was worth.. Some people made some comments but he justified it. I don't think he ever ended up selling it.

Sure looks like the boat anyways.

Well if anyone knows who bought it I have a 496HO, gimbal and Bravo X drive, 120 fresh water hours, in my 25 Howard that would make that a great package!

Can't tell if it is a 25 or a 28 but either way the ones for sale are in the mid $50's to the high $60k range - so with my my motor drive package ($15,000) he could be off boating for $31,500 plus maybe a few buck for rigging - he is in the thing $35k, which would be at least $15K better than market. I would say that was a good buy, pending condition.

Then I can get a new motor :D

By the way which auction - Fontana?

It was a 2002 28' at the Fontana (So Cal.) auction. It appears everything else is there, controls, gauges, even the bimini & stereo......

2Driver,

You happen to have a website for that auction? What is it exactly called, i.e., "Fontana Auction" or something else, cause I googled it and didn't give me any website that I can go to do any search. And you happen to know of any other auctions that sell boats?

Sure appreciate the info...

#1 its on a 2 axle trailer

#2 The deck looks just a little shorter than mine

You have to have dealer bid for you. It's the regular Manhiem auction dealers get their used cars from. Honestly if you get good at Craigslist you can do as well there if not better. I keep looking but not buying.

.

They are claiming 28' but who knows. Maybe the VIN will say: HCB28359H102 It's someone elses boat now. :)

Your theories sound solid, but believe it or not - this is a 28 Bullet. I think its on their website under 'factory.' Its a nice boat, especially for less than $17K. I think yours is a little nicer though :D and doesn't require paddles to make it go :)
