    Looks nice. Buy some good straps for the rear. Those bungies won't do anything except scratch the gelcoat.

    Here is a quick video of the boat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4xFJNUan0k

    Ill be buffing it out and cleaning the whole thing up soon. Ill create its own thread.
    Thanks everybody for all the interest and help!
    Looks great! Glad you found one. A little bit of work and you'll have a very nice boat, although looks ready to go as is!

    I'm sure I sounded rude, but didn't mean it. Most wooden stringers boats are in the 3-5k range. I am also in a scarce market, but in my case, it hurt me. I basically sold a 6k composite stringer 85 model s&s for 5k, and the guy that bought mine drive the hours to me. I just wouldn't have thought the value would fluctuate that much through the country. Most I've seen for sale that are wooden go for 3-5k and composite 3-8k. Usually have to have a completely original in very good shape to get 8k and those are usually one owner that'll draw that much money too. Like everything, it's worth as much as someone is willing to pay

It needed carpet and the hull was about a 6 of 10 with dock scrapes, keel rash, and guide pole scratches. The trailer was in only fair condition as well.

    I have seen nice ones listed for $12,500.
    You found one in a million to give double value for a boat! He must have really liked yours!

    There was a short conversation I had in here somewhere with a guy out West that had dropped the price on his cherry S&S to like $5,800 and coudn't get any action. I suggested he post it on the local Craigslists in the Mid-South to try and find a buyer who would [I]appreciate[I] his boat as much as he did. I'll see if I can find it. Maybe he still has it and y'all can hook up.

    Wow, 10,000. Im amazed to see a price that steep on this side of the states. Anybody seen an S&S priced higher than this?
    This is probably 10-15 mins down road from me max....
