So to do this now, Ill likely have to pay close to his asking price sight unseen and give as small a non-refundable deposit as I can, that way if the boat isnt as good as the add and the few pictures I wont loose too much.

I imagine I can get more pictures and some more info from an inquiry, so that might help some. But Im currently 6 hrs ahead and my Canadian cell phone # showing up on his call display usually means I have to leave at least one message about the boat add before anyone will answer the call becuase most people now days try. to avoid scammers from foreign countries.
Oh man...I forgot, you're a long ways from home AND a long ways from the boat. Hmmmmm...I'm headed up to your neck of the woods tomorrow...well, not really, Regina...to buy a snowmobile.

I bought a checkmate sight unseen from New York. It all worked out. The big difference being it was a lightly used 08.

I still think it will be there for you...

I bought my current boat sight unseen too, but it was young, low hours, on consignment at a dealer who took it to another dealer for inspection (third party) and it was found for me and recommended buy a forum member here.

Even then it was not brand new perfect, but it was nearly so and my deposit was refundable. After two days of driving to see it, it would have had to be much worse to not pick it up.

Boy that bottom paint just kills the look of that Persuader. Can that be removed and buffed out to original? I'm not familiar with bottom paint at all.

And this one seems pricey. Also 330hp out of a 350...I wonder what he did to it. I believe the 350mag is only rated at 305 unless I'm mistaken.

Notice the look on Old Fred's face (the dog). He feels the same way as us about the bottom paint. He even goes as far as to try and hide its existence in the photo.

Hahaha...and he actually looks to be relieving himself. My dog use to do the same but I think he did not like the Brown 'Mate' I had.

You know, I believe you're right, and in the general direction of said bottom paint. He's a good boy. It's not TLC but TLCR, that's Total Like Complete Replacement concerning the interior of which there are no images of. One can get an idea by looking at the stern shot and focusing on the starboard side of the sun pad. I think you wont have that much trouble with the bottom paint as the Arizona sun has nearly baked it off at this point anyway. I sure like the lines of that vessel though.
