The perfect Boat!! Immaculate condition. There are no rips or tears in vinyl and gelcoat is in great condition. Engine is a 454 with dart Pro 1 aluminum heads, RPM performer intake manifold and 750 quick fuel double pump carburetor. Out drive is a bravo 1. Comes with eliminator competitive trailer.

All about condition. 230's were still made up to last year and should be a little larger, don't know much about 22 Extreme.

Nice!
The 230 has a bit more room inside vs the 22, and personally I prefer the lines of the 230.
Neither are really “fast” hulls.
The 22 is a step bottom, bit there is a speed threshold with that hull. Much over 70 is gets squirrelly.

The engine looks clean. Check to make sure things are in order as far as marine and not automotive accessories. It’s not uncommon really.

And, those bolts through the hatch would drive me nuts, they’re begging for a trimming.

@Gelcoater why isnt there much info on the extremes? its still for sale im going to be looking at it this weekend. things to look out for? guy has 2 boats so this one doesnt get used.

i sold the 230 to a friend( yes i know big mistake) thought i wanted a "family boat" which lasted 2 weeks and sold it.
