How well does that 1500 pull (and stop) the boat?

I’m guessing you’re in Miami?

I'm in Tampa.

1500 definitely feels it but just towed it to and from Miami withou issue. Did about 65 mph the whole and averaged 10 mpg. Helps that the trailer has brakes on all axles

Clean boat with the cover on, I was not going to risk getting shoe prints on the boat

When was the last time the bottom paint was touched up/ or re-done?

Are the motors 2006 as well?

Maintenance records and intervals on the motors?

1) honestly not sure. I trailer so it was not something I asked when I purchased the boat

2) motors are 06

3) I have the last 5 years of records. It's been service every 100 hours

4) I will work on getting pics inside the counsel.

Let me me know if you want to see the boat while you're here

Open to offers, need to move the boat.

Still, at $65k, it's the lowest priced 28 on the market with 4 strokes

Also do we know if the tanks have been pressure tested or inspected for issues?

Completely forgot to get the console pics this past weekend. I'll get some this week.

Tanks have not been tested. No reason to suspect any tank issues.

I've made a few 50+ miles the past month without issue.
