Looks like a nice boat for the age. Have you had any compression tests done on the motor? Do you know how many hours are on it? How much fade/ scratching on the paint (can't tell from pics, which look fine)? Is there anyting that is not in good working order that needs repair? Any vinyl cut or scracthed? How about the winshields? Thx much, and nice job putting up more details than most sellers.

Hi... I also received your e-mail.. I will send you some hi-res pictures shortly.

I had compression tests done last year when the fuel pump was replaced... all good (I'd have to call the shop to get the exact numbers). The seats and carpet are still in pretty good shape ... there is some cracking in the vinyl seats about what you would expect for this age boat.
