Hey all, not sure if this is allowed, if not I apologize and I'll remove.

Just cruising CL and found this: https://austin.craigslist.org/boa/d/austin-2008-champion-210-elite/6903135815.html

I've had a champ in the past and everyone knows they're one of the better hulls out there. This seems like a very, very fair price.

Thought I'd share in case anyone is in the market. I'm semi-close to Lake Travis if someone is serious and wants me to put eyes on the boat. I can't/won't do any mechanical stuff but I'll go look it over, etc.

Cheers!

Yeah, definitely not mint but I still thought it was a good deal. I don't watch the market THAT closely though. Think that price is avg?

Its below average for that model for sure, but it being rough warrants the lower price. I think youre right though, for someone with the funds to fix it up, could be diamond in the rough. Id like to see it cleaned top to bottom and polished, then a good TM on front too.

Thats a steal for someone looking for a great boat and can do some fixing up himself. Or for someone wanting best fishing bang for the buck and not as worried about dating the prom queen.

Okay cool, I was thinking the same thing.

I'm half tempted to sell my Skeeter and get it! ...Or offer something like $16k, clean it up and resell it, lol!

I live very close and I'm tempted to go look at it, but I don't think I could safely haul it with my 6 cyl. 4-Runner, like I can my SX190 Skeeter.

Wish I had the money to buy it. It is good and broke in and I run my boats until everything falls off of them, so no resale value to them. Hope you make the right decision.

Tight lines, keep safe and good luck

There were some issues with the transoms in the elites I'd do some googling and check out some things to look at. Not all champions are equal FYI.


Edit quick search brought up quite a bit and its flex as a result of splitting as a result of water coming in at the cap.

Also, Mega Link problems with the control pad on all the Elites is a huge problem.
No where to get replacement parts for this system. Have to switch over to Rocker Switches. $$$$

Pretty sure boat only rated for a 225 motor.

The current owners appear to be dragging it with an Audi!

I've heard of that. I think there were some warranty repairs where they were adding a brace in the transom.
