When I say smoking deal, I mean that the person selling this boat is smoking something. What a disaster!! This poor boat just needs to be put out of it's misery at this point. Who does this?!!

I say $8k - $10k

Guessing the real engine was trash or sold on craigslist and 350 takeout was cheap to put something in to make it run. Theres no way that boat ever left Eliminator with a 350 in it.

A single 350 small block in a 28? I’m genuinely curious as to why anyone would do that? That boat would be a dog with a stock 496HO.

It does appear to be a salt water boat though so maybe it was just a harbor cruiser, idk.

I do like those colors & gel design though. If that boat had a single 525 & was in pristine condition, it would carry a solid price tag in today’s market.

It’s custom. Should be priced a bit higher.

So an interior is how much? $10,000? For a guy who has a nice engine laying around maybe it makes sense.

Am I looking at this correctly, dual RMI's.....one each for captain and FO? 😂

Which one do they navigate to if there is a heading mismatch? :oops:

The 350 would be a for sure no but I think you would be surprised what a 496ho would do. I had a 94 straight bottom 28 with a cerebrated 502 and it pushed it quite well 65-70.

Looks to me like someone took that boat and made it into a dedicated fishing boat.

It does make me sad to look at those pics and see how bad it is. In its prime I bet it was a really nice looking boat.

So it’s going to take $22-$25M to get it right, then worth $45, so you gotta get it at $15 or below to break even. Hard no.
