But what they do have is a ride quality second to none( had my first trip in a 31te fountain last week, not even on the same planet), awesome performance(2.5mpg all day long at 35mph cruise), dry as bone ride with soft re entry and a classic look that is timeless. IMO, best boat you can buy in its class for the $$. Good luck with your resto.

I really like how the t-top is attached to the console and flows into the leaning post. Especially the way it has no pipework next to the sides of the console and attaching to the deck. Was that done at the factory or done afterwards?

My console is similar and would love to do the same (intrepid 284)

Im in Charleston. Was just wondering if I would see your Intrepid around. It looks great man! I have a 323 with your same engines.

My new (to me) Intrepid 323 Cuddy . . . finally

Yours came out great. Intrepid actually just did a 375 Nomad a similar color to yours. It’s for sale right now. They built it as a demo.

That is an awesome boat! I used to work in Charleston. Was born there. Been in Beaufort for 14 years now. Most of my family still there. PM me if your ever this way. Beaufort water fest is right around the corner.

Gorgeous boat! These are the type of finishing touches that would make mine amazing!

Love these hulls. Took mine out last night and she’s still a rocket ship!

I saw that boat a bit back. I think you got a ridiculous deal in that!! Can’t wait to see her finished.

Hey Pete, not a damn thing wrong with all the whistles and bells, lol. No dive doors offered on these, wasn't until the 323 I believe was the dive door a factory option. When I had mine in having all of the gel coat touched up and and any glass work redone, the guy I use did offer to cut and glass a dive door in but it wasn't cheap. He told me 8k and when I asked why he explained how much structure he had to rework to support the door.the hardware and labor added up fast. When he was sone explaining what it would take he paused and said probably closer to 10k now that I'm going over it. I'm not putting another 10k into her, she is done. BTW, spearo holder is solid👍
