Default 1996 sea pro 190cc

I'm looking to purchase a 1996 sea pro 190cc. It has a 1996 Mariner 115 offshore on it. It looks like a solid boat but I was wondering if any of you guys can give me feedback on this boat before I make a mistake in buying it. What are so problem areas I should look for if any in this model. I know what to look for the basic trouble areas but not model specific. Also is this engine going to give me problems whats there running history. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You
Anthony

I am redoing a 1999 Sea Pro 210CC. I have a 150 Yamaha 2 stroke and can't speak for your engine, but the boat is a well built boat. I have been inside and out of the hull with no complaints. Attached are pre-sand/buff chalky hull and a reflective hull.

Thanks for the feed back. That was one one thing I was wondering was the overall construction of the boat.

Default Yes, thanks for Pro-Line Feedback

I am also in the market for a 20'-22' fishing/family boat. I know little about the Pro-Line brand, except that they are cheaper (used market) than some other brands and that concerns me a little - 'cause it's always been my experience that "you get what you pay for."

Can any Pro-Line owners give sound feedback on how they ride? I know that hull shape/weight make a pretty big difference. Not all 20' are created equal...

Thanks in advance guys - my wife and I have finally made the decision. I am buying a boat before the end of March (even if it kills me).

Looking at a 20' Pro-Line Sport CC this afternoon and I appreciate any advice (positive or negative).

One more thing. Is the "Sport" a trim/package upgrade - or does it mean nothing at all?

Mike

My buddy is still trying to sell this nice Sea Pro. I'm sure you can get it alot cheaper than the list price. Where are you located?

My 99 is a good boat, so much so I re-powered 4 yrs ago instead of buying new

Never any issues with boat at all, just minor complaints but nothing major at all, drink holders placed where console storage compartment will not open when your drinks are there.


Seem to be built pretty well, no wood so no rot

MikeVJ, just to clarify, the feedback is on the Sea Pro brand of boat, NOT Proline.
