Hello everyone.
The last boat i had was a 16' sidewinder.After replacing all the wood in that one thought i'd never buy another boat again.Well never say never.Brought home a '88 exciter a month or so ago.Boat is all original and is amazing condition.
I was told it was a mercury test boat for 15 + years in Fond du lac,wi.Came with a 135 mariner that i just sold after finding a 2002 NOS XR6 still on the shipping pallet.The merc will go on in the spring,boat is going into storage this week.Will try and post pics as soon as i can.
