    I've made the album public. I'm not sure why it's not showing up. Help?

      Not to be a smart a$$ but for the real person, one would have sanded and buffed out the original gel coat for the purist result..... get the picture?

      Back to your original question... $2,800.............

        The boat drives awesomely! It pulls me out of the hole on a slalom in a heartbeat!

          Sure, Cloaked. I understand your response. I can only say that I know that a person from a body shop painted the boat. I bought it that way. I can only assume that they primed and painted the boat in a most loved way. I was most impressed and it's still looking as good today as when I bought it 4 years ago. Someone will enjoy this boat.

            I'd burn the boat before I'd accept that for it.... Really?

              Thanks! It really is a great boat. I just want to make sure that I don't get shafted on selling it.

                Thank you, gentlemen, for your responses. I will consider this in my final price.

                  That flake sure doesn't look painted to me...

                  OP, you're going to get some far flung estimates on value until you have someone determine what was done to that hull...Paint (no bueno), new gelcoat (maybe good), or just a simple wetsand/buff job (probably best.)

                  Good luck with your sale.

                    I agree with soacj......pics look great.
                    If that's indeed gelcoat and not paint, very desirable. $5-$6K or more.
                    Get a marine survey done first so that you know what to price it at and the next buyer can see that survey which should show everything they need to know. A surveyor can tell you if it has been painted or re-gelcoated.

                        Boat looks great in the pics, and like others have said, doesn't look like paint. The flake looks awesome.

                          Thanks, Scott and all, it looks great! I've put in a message to the last owner. I'm hoping he will respond. So I'm guessing gel coating makes a difference? Mastercraft excellence means a lot to me and I will disclose all processes to represent a true product.

                            I don't burn boats. LOL I want to sell it! That was a quick response to a ridiculous quote and reply. Really? #itsallgood

                                Look up marine surveyors on the web or yellow pages
