I have a chance to buy a 1985 Ski Nautique 2001 for possibly in the upper $6k range. The boat would mainly be used for of course wakeboarding and *gasp* tubing (I know, I know
). The boat only has around 400 original hours on it and the interior looks to be in great shape and the outside could use a little bit of help (from waht i can see in the pictures I have), ill know more once I get to take a look at it. How would I go about checking the stringers in this boat for rot? Also, what are some other things that I should look for on this boat? Are the 82-86 hulls the same as the 87-89 hulls? The only difference I can see is on the 87-89 the vents on the front are by the windshield instead of side by side in the center, and also it looks like the changed the dash design. Thanks in advance everyone!
