I'm launching a real estate tech startup and need some funding so its time to start selling off the toys
I had big plans for this boat, but I need the money more than I need a water hot rod right now.
I have all the details below from the guy I purchased it from a couple years ago. The gel coat is original and in really good shape. There is only two small cracks on the entire boat and they're only in the gel coat (not structural). The original owner (notes below) stated it has hardly any time on it.
Per the previous owner, the 427, TH400 trans and casalle 500 heavy duty V-Drive have only a couple hours of run time since rebuild. The 427 is a 4 bolt is out of a 67 Corvette with 3904351 stamped on the block.
I took the motor out to get it ready for a blown 540 I built for it. The engine is back in the boat but needs a couple parts to get running again (mostly just fuel and water cooling lines), but it did run just fine when I first got it.
The main value is the hull. It really is in great shape, has beautiful lines and would be a great platform for a go-fast project. The trailer is fine structurally and has new tires but needs to be repainted. The interior needs to be replaced. I took some of it out to check the bilge and structure of the hull and everything is in good shape.
Ill be going to the boat show in Needles the weekend of Feb 27th. If someone is really interested and Needles is closer to them than Ventura County, I have no problem towing it out there.
Please txt or call if you have any questions, I dont check my PMs all that often. Thanks, Sean.
