I had one last year... it was a good boat It had the 4.3 . got good MPG. the only thig I didn't care for was.. if you have to work on the eng it was Very tight. I think my ribs are still sore from changing the starter. I sold mine cause the Starter bosses in the Block cracked and I didn't want to change the eng.... and I had a line on the boat I have now...LOL Oh the Bulkhead in front of the eng had some stress cracks, exposed wood that needed repair as well. a soft spot on the deck in front of the AFT seats. Other than that it was a great boat.
