    Price seems a little high to me with a 502 with 400+ hours??

    I got the same. Tried to check one of my own CL ads and got same. Went to log into my CL account and it goes to a term of use page that is asking me to agree to new terms that show penalties for posting certain things.

    Guess you haven’t priced used boats in a while. This is the cheapest 250 Cole I have ever seen and as far as that 502 with 400 hours I would much rather have then the 496 any day!

    Well i keep thinking of selling mine but was going to list around mid 40s firm. so if this cant fetch what a Hallets or Howards are fetching i guess i have to much sentimental value involved.

    Imo its a steal at that price!

    Could this be towed by a 5.3 Tahoe? I can afford the boat but not a boat and truck.

    @cole_skier Your ready and price is right. Great colors on this one as usual and upgraded stereo and manifolds. Sorry to hear about your parents.

    I used to tow mine with a Ford Expedition, with the 5.4 and it did just fine.

    You must be lying, the experts on here said the Jeeps with the same motor could barely tow a Sea-Doo Spark:rolleyes:

    Depending on condition, that seems like a deal.

    Thank you Boater250s and RDP. I would have never seen this in time without this post. Thank you to the multiple members who PMed me the sellers number when I had issues with craigslist. Thank you to River Dave for guidance. Thank you to Tim at Dirty Deeds Marine in Parker (Highly recommended) who helped me inspect it. And, most importantly thank you to the FORMER OWNER Bill for being an amazing honest seller and a new friend. 20190824_133046.jpg

    Congratulations on your new to you Cole!! I'm glad I could help you out. I think you'll be real happy with it, I have for 20 years. It's just a great all-around boat. Maybe I'll run into you some day out in Parker. I hope to see you at the Cole Regatta in October.

    The former owner Bill said there were others interested but I didn't know if it was a sales technique or not. I thought it was a fair price for a boat I really wanted that works perfectly for my family. My kids, wife, dog, and I will love it. The second we scanned engine hours and it came back even less than the gauge reads (gauge says 410 and scanned in the 380s) I didn't even need a water test. We launched just for fun and I can't be happier.

    Yea I was next in line after you. Bill was an honest seller and didn’t give any wrong impressions. He even text me today to let me know it was sold. Stand up guy in my opinion
