Known Issues:
- On the canvas top the access to the top doesn’t close as the zippers are bad.
- The steering wheel attachment on the top station is a little soft, hit a wire with it and pulled it out a few years ago and repair could have been better but doesn’t affect steering
- Fuel gauges don’t read, have new sending units on order

We tow it with a 2017 Ford F250 Diesel and works well towing this, but absolutely would not tow it with a half ton. Towed this back from Jupiter FL in 2015 and have taken it back and forth to Hatteras several times each year from Gettysburg.

Asking $89,000 - have an offer accepted on a twin diesel express so not looking for any trades

Took the boat out of storage yesterday and found fuel in the bilge, looks like the port saddle tank has a very small leak in it, maybe 8-10 oz over the winter leaked out. All the fuel lines are dry so pretty sure it is the tank.

Did some research and called and talked to the Jupiter factory. They sent me the cut lines where the floor needs cut and I talked to a few places the do the repair, figuring it is around $1,500 per tank for new tanks plus labor to install and do the fiberglass work. So dropping the price $15,000 to cover this repair if someone is interested, new price is $64,000.

The boat is usable for the summer by utilizing the front 50 gallon auxiliary tank and good starboard tank, for a total of 180 gallons and then could get the repair done in the fall.

Obviously disappointing to figure this out now but glad it didn't sell and then have someone inherit this problem this summer.

Update on the boat, have had some interest but still for sale, tanks are getting pumped out tomorrow, so the tank that is leaking slightly will be empty, the 50 gallon front tank will be pumped and cleaned and then the fuel from the bad saddle tank will be put in the front tank so it can be used. Also, cleaning the fuel in the good saddle tank so boat is useable for the summer. Also, our new boat looks like it won't be ready for our trip the week of the 16th so the Jupiter maybe in Hatteras NC for the week of May 16th and available for sea trial there.

I contacted Jupiter and have the drawings on where the floor needs to be cut and the tank sizes, the console does not need to come out, the back 2 tower legs will need to be unbolted to get the floor out but it doesn't need to come off. Happy to share the documents with anyone interested, shoot me a PM and I can email them to you

Another update, had Clean Fuel Associates come to pump out the front tank and saddle tank so they could be used, per post above, went to pump the front tank out and there was nothing in it, not even an ounce, appears that tank was the one that leaked the fuel into the bilge, they showed me where it was leaking and path to the bilge, it must have gotten a hole over the winter and completely drained the front tank. The boat was parked under cover but on a dirt floor so I guess I didn't see how much had run out the drain plug hole over the winter.

So at this point, looks like both saddles are good, front tank is bad. That is the easy one to replace, there is access in the center console, all you would need to do is remove the toilet, unbolt it and slide it out.
