Everybody has seen my 81 Spectra and knows it is for sale. This boat is as nice a v drive Spectra around. Unfortunately, I am in a bad position money wise and i hate to sell this I want it to go to someone on the boards so maybe there might be someone to appreciate it . That said I WILL TAKE $9200 BUCKS. There is nothing but quALITY PARTS IN THIS THING Greg 805239 1643

I was hoping somebody worthy on the boards would grab it. Either everyones broke or hell i dont know, those that have seen rave about it. $5000 is just so cheap but ?

The price is down to $5000??:boobeyes:
That is fuckin crazy.. I'm broke right now too or I'd swoop on the whole package for 9200..

Granted it'd take some glass work filling all the holes I'd fill, but that's still crazy cheap for a blown v-drive / turn key.

With the current tune / boost what are the fuel requirements?

What MPH does it run with a light load?

Do you have more pictures available?

Where is the boat right now?

My 24XS ain't no rocket ship... at this price I could afford to have a fast"er" boat and a cruiser.

Aloha

No holes need to be filled in it's current state.. I'm weird though, I'd remove that ladder off the back, and half the stuff off the dash etc..

Had this boat been this price a few months ago, It'd be sitting in my shop right now.

Is the motor still "in" the boat? Ready to run?

I asked before and never got a response... what sort of fuel does the current boost/tune require?

Where is the boat? I'd like to look at it but I need to know where "it" is first.

I am seriously considering adding another Spectra to the stable. I've asked two pretty basic questions twice now and so far have yet to receive any reply. If it's top secret I'll sign a waiver and you can PM the info to me. I don't want to tell you how to sell a boat, but had I received the answers last week you'd most like already be up $9000 and I'd be + 1 boat.

If you don't want to sell this boat just say so... otherwise I'd like the answer to these two questions.

1. Fuel requirement. What octane does the current boost/tune require? Are we talking 87 pump gas... or C16??? Somewhere in between?

2. Where is the boat located? Just a city or zip code will be fine.

Thank you!

Aloha

I am flying up to Sacramento the morning of the 12th (this coming Tuesday) and driving back down to SoCal the same day. Would you be available to show the boat in the late afternoon / early evening?

Thanks for the pix. Looks nice. I am wondering if the boat is still for sale as a previous post from last month looked like someone else was interested.

I am interested if the boat may be sold as mentioned without the motor. I cant afford the motor. I have a decent motor in my Spectra 20 jet that should push this boat 65-70 (complete guess).

I have never owned a v-drive before, mostly stern drives. I hesitate a bit with having to keep it so far from the beach. My daughter is 13 though and likes to tube. She has skied but not much. I think the v-drive would be better than the jet for such things, except for the prop part.

Does this boat have aluminum tanks? I just replaced my leaky fiberglass tanks in my Spectra. Not really wanting to do that again.

Thanks
