I have a 1997 205 with the same number of hours. It is a Great boat. If you don't buy it I might be interested. We have had 20 years of great times in our boat. Go for it.

I'm not much on posting "look at me" type stuff but since you ask...here are a few pictures. I took the entire boat apart and reassembled with the above...mostly all in one winter layup period. I have other costs not listed but this is the majority of the costs.

I was working away on this thing and finished it up for the coming season. One day I cleaned out my email and sorted mail that related to electronic transactions etc. So I decided to put the items in Excel (mistake for a hobby). It added up quickly. Never put your hobby in an Excel sheet.

Several large numbers from above: PerfectPass, skins, carpet, GT40P heads, two platforms, dual batteries......I also used (undocumented) a lot of stainless hardware from the local store and Graingers.

I moved the battery from the rear to the front (duals) so that required all new cable runs, etc.

I have recently rewired the boat with another $500 in material alone.

The engine is coming out this fall for a bottom up rebuild (upping the HP) that will run another estimated $5000 all-inclusive, and my labor for lifting, re-setting, and aligning is free to me...

The 190 Looks Better than new...Very Nice... what a cracker

The 205 looks great, nice work on the teak...In 5 years time you will not even care how much you paid for it, boats are a great lifestyle choice ...not an investment.

We are super pleased with it. Looking back, we could have paid more and still would have been happy. Great driving boat and it cleaned up really nice
