Hull #228 The boat is in very good condition and in above average shape for its age. A motor is not included. I currently have one available if needed. Boat was splashed for two months fall of 2015 after sitting on trailer for two years. It was immediately competitive with the top boat in our local fleet. Finishing overlapped with first, each time raced. Recent exam of boat has discovered some moisture in the hull core. This is in an area below the water line, in the center 3rd area of the hull. We have tested by removing core samples and professionally filling the holes. Extent of area was confirmed with moister meter. Structural integrity of the boat is not compromised, just a known issue that might someday need addressing. Boat is priced accordingly.
