Like the title says, I am selling my 393v. It is in FANTASTIC condition, and runs well day in and day out. The XR6 is considered one of Mercury's most reliable engines. Over the past 2 years that I have owned the boat, I have made many upgrades and kept the boat in tip-top shape. As expected with an almost 30 year old boat though, there are a few minor dings and things that could be worked on.

THE GOOD:

Re-powered with newer engine, previous owner said that he guessed it had less than 100 hours on it when I bought it, I have probably put about 100 more on it (no computer to gauge this on this engine)
2014 Minn Kota Fortrex 80 lb 24 volt trolling motor
Garmin 73sv on ram mount at the console
Dual Console
Tandem Axle Trailer
Oil Injected
2 almost new tires and 2 very good tires
New front axle on trailer
New bow eye
23p Tempest prop in great shape
New carpet as of 2 years ago
Removable casting platform
Trailer lights work
Not a leak in the boat, bone dry
Upholstery is in good condition
2 Optima bluets batteries new in 2013
Cranking battery new 2014
Semi-custom cover with 2 years of warranty left
Bearing buddies all the way around on trailer
3 new trailer hubs in the last year
3 bank charger on board
4 life jackets
I am sure I am missing a few other things that are major, and countless minor things.

THE BAD

Small chip out of passenger console windshield
Cowling graphics on back are removed
Front cowling latch is busted, doesn't affect it staying on the engine
Speedometer works intermittently
There is a loose connection somewhere with the Garmin, if you hit a big wave it will turn off and you have to turn it back on
A few scuffs on the trailer
A little fading on the top of the gel coat, nothing crazy for the year
One live well pump does not work
Those are the things I can think of, maybe there is more but not much

I can do test drives, but only with cash in hand. I have the title to the boat and motor and current registration card. Trailer registration is current. Can text more pictures upon request to serious buyers of carpet, live wells, storage, engine under cowling, etc.

Thanks, and if you have any other questions please don't hesitate to let me know. Boat will run 60.4 on the GPS with a light load, I rarely run it over 45 mph. Text is the best way to get in touch with me. 512-422-1752 I can assure you this is THE CLEANEST boat for sale right now for it's age. Thanks for looking! Asking $8700.

Freshly waxed, looks like an early 2000's boat. Lake ready, and connection with the Garmin if fixed. Bump
