Anyone Live in Pompano Beach, FL and can take a look at a boat for me in their spare time? I live in MD but am thinking about buying a 1977 23' Potter built Seacraft. I realize this may be a long shot but worth a try. If you do not mind pm me or reply on here and if you live in the area I would greatly appreciate it.
The boat is supposedly located at 920 NE 24 STREET POMPANO BEACH. I have been in contact with the owner and he seems like a nice guy and has sent me pictures and all but an 18 hour drive one way is holding me back.

Very close to my home. Can't go until next week, but if you need someone to swing by next week, I would do it.

Thanks rkatz but Jus Teasing did me a huge favor and checked out the boat already. He is one helluva nice guy and did me a tremendous favor. Thanks again Jus Teasin.

That red one right?
What did she look like?

Yes it is the red one on Craigs. Jus Teasin checked it out and he stated it is a project indeed. Also, there was some apparent wood decay/rot under the deck lid where the gas tank goes. As far as the trim tabs, gauges, electrical stuff and motor nothing was hooked up, so there is a chance it does not work. These are the main things he told me and if you want more details contact him, he is a really nice guy and inspected the boat thoroughly.

It's a project, that's for sure. The floor where the gas tank sits (no tank) has rotted wood under the fiberglass. He has a guy there now that's "hooking everything up", but when I was there nothing was connected.
I had questions in my mind to the quality of the "rebuild", because some of the things I saw were a little "off", or not fitting quite right.
I would have liked to see the hull before the paint job, because we all know that paint can hide lots of things. But in all fairness, it was a nice paint job.
As I told Brandon, it's not my type of boat, and it might be the "jewel" of the center console world, but with nothing working, and the things that it needed, I just couldn't say "this is the one, come down here and buy it", because I had as many questions leaving, as when I got there.

Sounds like a boat to pass on, way too many great used boats out there to take on a project
