I think this one is done. Check out the tower, or lack there of. I'm guessing this was another casualty of Katrina. What a shame Cry.gifVery big Project

Not exactly sure what they think is worth $5K... Dontknow.gif

"This boat was damaged as the storm surge entered the boat house. The hull was fractured at the bow and the foredeck is gone. The interior liner is broken and separated from the hull. The engine was submerged and the condition is unknown."

The engine block is probably salvagable...the trailer looks OK...not worth $5K. No.gif

The ad said that no trailer was included. I agree, I don't know if it is even worth $500.

If I was the Insurance co, I would pull off the salavageable parts and throw the hull through a chipper Crazy.gif Maybe sell it as Malibu landscaping mulch! Surprised.gif

My father had his first boat before he had his driver's license and use to ski on lake michigan. His third boat (when I was around 4-5) was an outboard runabout that looked a lot like that rlxi when he started. it had been in accident and the entire side of the boat ripped up. tons of glasswork later and it was in great shape.

but I could never do something like that!

I am thinking that this might make a good ski boat for someone who lives on a lake with a 14 ft max lenght restriction. They can send it back to MB for the Extreme Blunt Nose option. Biggrin.gif

Huh, I thought Titan towers were tough..... Where's the rear hoop???

Damn, how bad would that suck???? Cry.gifCry.gifBeer.gif:Doh:Frustrated.gif

BUT if there was a hurricane coming wouldn't you pull the boat instead of leaving it in the boathouse????

I wonder if it has a HammerHead in there? It might be a good base for my spare motor :)

Shocking.gif Not sure I can ever look my boat in the bow again after seeing those pics. Actually, might have to go check her out tomorrow, just for the halibut. Edited by VinRLX

Just....speechless. With that said, I can imagine that the people who owned it are thankful to get through the storm & be alive to collect the insurance money. Just awful on so many levels.

as far as i know you would pull the motor and tranny and maybe a few other bits and bin the rest. The bow is not repairable as the two decks are chemically bonded and dont come appart.

Heard a story of a boat being worked over like that here in AUS and they couldnt do a thing to save it..
