ha ha ha. You just keep waiting for the “deal”

From his description and if it checks out his price is low.
I'm not looking or waiting for a deal. If it checks out his price is fair. Its not low. Look how long it took to sell yours.

Just a clean well cared for boat with decent colors. I don't even mind going through it all.

I wasn’t giving mine away and no secret that I was asking as much as I could. So yea it took little longer. But sold.

if you sell in 2-3 days money was left in the table.

That can be a misconception. Right buyer was ready and or priced right.

In this market it’s the right buyer, not price. You should know this. Aren’t you in real estate?

Any ways hope the seller get what he wants, not may 240’s currently listed.

Right!?!? Can’t mess around on good boats. I’m busy as hell, but I can throw some money in my truck and be in Havasu within 4 hours. My post will also push someone to shit or get off the pot.

I like that boat, and I hope you get it.
24ft, with a 496Mag... should be a very reliable, comfortable riding package that gets the job done for you and several of you close friends... The pic's , it appears to have been well taken care of for its age...

I’d love to have it. I sold my lower river day cruiser because I needed new horizons and needed to go to parts of the river where I have internet and cell phone reception for work. Cant beat a Hallett!

I doubt I’ll get it, but it’s definitely going to have a lucky owner.

DOOOOD! Nice score. Congrats, You have been looking for the right boat for awhile.

This boat was repowered at some point I’m guessing since it is a 1996 with a 496 Mag?

Funny how that works. This has all the good stuff to handle Havasu.. Trim tabs, good steering, stereo, and WTOB for the family.

Even the roughest of boating days will be tolerable.

Some specs........ How does it perform?
Just a Merlin headed big block with a b&m 250 on it. It’s an OG TCM build, 700-725hp 5.5psi deal. It pushes the boat in the 80’s with fuel and people. Nothing special, I can tell you it takes a bit of power to make them runners. I have playing with set up for a bit but finally have it dialed. It takes a lot more then throwing power at a boat.

I'm sure it does, the motor is the easy part. Then out drive work and playing with the x as its sets so low then play with props....

Looks good, enjoy!
