Response LX owner - next boat FXI?

Recommended Posts


While I personally would not buy a rebuilt engine, warranty or not, they can be very good.  The hotshotter I worked with for Moby Dock  just had his Ford blow up - at 800,000 kms - and he told me he would rebuild it hoping to get a quarter million more.  A properly rebuilt engine is like as good or better than factory, but how to tell?

If it's a new long block, no problem if the builder is decent and willing to stand behind their work. My Monsoon is a replacement long block and it honks.

Hey footndale, I am very close to closing a deal on the boat that you referenced above.  Still a little nervous about buying a boat with a rebuild in it.  Do you have any other history/experience with the seller and his rebuilds.  He seems pretty reputable, but I can also be pretty gullible.



I do not personally. Just his reputation from the ski teams in that area. Janesville and Madison team members.
