    Most of these remain in the southwest part of the country. This one was brought up to Michigan in the 80's or 90's and has been a freshwater boat since. Currently in Cleveland Ohio. It is in running condition, used all summer 2019 and just pulled and winterized last week.

    I know you all know the history of these boats, but below is a copy and paste from a local ad I had posted a couple of years back.

    -1978 32' Spectra
    -Roughly 180 hours on complete remanufactured drivetrain (engines, transmissions, drives) (2000).
    -Twin 350 mercruiser 5.7L, carbureted. Stock.
    -Desirable Borg Warner Transmissions
    -TRS Outdrives
    -Engines, transmissions, and drives remanufactured and installed in 2000.
    - Thru-hull exhaust
    -K Plane Trim tabs
    -Cockpit interior redone in 2000 with new drop out bolster seats.
    -Triple axle trailer included with custom bunks placed for proper strap lifting. (6 new tires on trailer 9/6/14 with receipt for $667 in hand). 2 of the 3 axles have drum brakes (not hooked up currently). Would need some work to go long distances. Locally travels fine.
    -Has only seen Lake Erie freshwater since complete overhaul in 2000.

    Custom reverse arch. Custom bulkhead support lines up front. Custom made split engine hatches. KC Performance epoxy bottom paint. Two new (in 2000) 100 gallon gas tanks that are barrier coated and foamed in. PO replaced the rear bulkhead in front of the engines. Hynautic steering. Interior in cabin is original to my knowledge (shag headliner too!) and in good shape. No mildew or mold whatsoever in the cabin. Circular couch seating with long bed up front. Bilge pumps, blowers, drive trim, trim tabs. Floor, stringers, and transom all solid. 3 batteries. On board marine battery charger. Fireboy automatic fire suppressant system in the motor compartment. Very minor spider cracks here and there but that is to be expected of a 1978 hull. Canvas mooring cover (getting old and needs stitched in places but works). No windshield currently. Transmissions shift properly and shift smooth. Props good. Trailer is used for the yard and local use now, but would be fine for long distance with a little TLC.

    Located in Eastlake Ohio near Cleveland.

    **New bellows, oil hoses, bellhousing hinge pin, and port side gimbal bearing installed July 2015. $1700 worth of work done. Newer right side starboard transom assy installed June 2017, with all new starboard bellows at that time. Transom checked at that time by mechanic, reported solid.

    This boat was bought from Michigan in the late 90's and was brought to the Eastlake Ohio area. It has been here since.

    Rare piece of history. Only 58 made. Thank you. $13,000.
