Here we go 5000.00, clear titles and I will assure you, and this is as clean as the pictures look, even better. Not one of those boats that look good on the pictures and then have a lot to be desired when you see it up close. I have bought another boat and this one needs to move to make room. Look at all the new parts, add the cost of them, have over 1200.00 in electronics alone. All gauges, switches, pumps and mechanical work was done by Marine Land in Waco, Texas in November of 2011. Jelcoat work (Masters) was done by Severs in Waco, Texas also in November 2011. All Trailer work was done in December of 2011, boat was stored at Rockwall marine during this time, can contact Tommy, they also put new water pump and seals in lower end then.

Nice boat

Guys, I've met Rick, and as a matter of fact he bought my clean 96 Stratos that's listed on the forum. He is a stand-up guy and VERY anal about taking care of his equipment. For a first time boat owner, or a cash buyer, this is a great buy considering the amount of work that's gone into it. As most know, these old Wranglers are some tough little boats, and pretty dang fast. Not to mention, the trailer has been restored.

If you’re looking for cash buy boat that you don’t have to do anything to, but hook up and go fish, you should really go check this boat out.

FYI, Rick did not pay for this endorsement thumb. Just hate to see someone miss out on a real good opportunity.

I have seen this boat up close, and this is one clean rig. Rick is top notch guy, and takes very good care of his equipment. If I had the money right now, I would not hesitate to buy this boat.
