new interior, perfect pass, rebuilt carb, v drive, open bow, 8 grand..... I don't think you can go wrong.
It's a great deal for the right buyer. I'm still weighing my options, but here's my thoughts. The carb needs some adjusting since the secondaries dont kick in, and I hate hate hate messing with carbs. The carpet needs to be replaced, and that over-sized trailer concerns me. That, plus the fact I would need to add a tower, ballast bags, and travel over 11 hours to get it all factor in. Plus I am really starting to get into surfIng (easier on the body), and I have read a lot of threads about issues creating a regular footed surf wake with the Excel.
It's a nice boat, and Tim is a great guy, but it might not be my best bet with my current schedule. (I struggle to find time on the water, nevermind doing extensive work on a boat)
