Dual Exhaust

I'm thinking about putting cat back dual exhaust on my 2013 Chevy 1500. A local place quoted me $800-$1000 for a kit. I thought that was high so I did some checking. I see there are a ton of kits...

Thats surf ballast, dual batteries, 400 Raptor(big diff from your 303), and a trailer for 50K. I'm also talking what NEW boats sold for. I guess I think new boats are worth more than used. Like I...

For a 12, I'd think around 35K-37K tops. We were selling 13's brand new in 13 for $41-43K. Sold the last 14 well optioned last year around $46K. Saw a low hour used 2013 sell a month ago around...

They are comparable to other boats of the era. That is when Tige said they didn't need ballast so there will be no stock ballast systems. The Metcraft towers are known to be problematic so make...

Wasn't trying to be a dick…the guy asked for an opinion and having owned the exact boat I gave him an opinion. He didn't say I bought it to camp, is it OK to us for occasional wake boarding. He...

Call me what you want. I have actually owned that exact boat. I'm speaking from my experience and comparing it to 28 years of towboat ownership experience.

Because you bought a cabin cruiser to use as a wakeboard boat. Not a great tow boat at all. Wake may be big but it will be wash. Speed hold will be nearly impossible. Slow out of the hole and...

You said 20 footer so I don't get adding the Supreme S21. Its a big 21 at 21 feet with a 102 beam. If your adding that size to the equation there are lots(and better) options. The Supreme's have...

Normally if they don't match the computer is right. Analog hour meters are notoriously wrong. If I had to believe one it would always be the engine computer.

I'd only buy it if you plan to "stroke a check for it" and run it in the famous "spillway"!!

Seriously though, if you want it and can afford it go for it.

I would think a 2005 Xstar should be well above the 20-30K range. Looks like they are selling mid to high 40's. If you found one under 30, thats the deal of the summer!!

Submerged boats can be and are almost always a nightmare. You will likely chase demons in that boat the rest of the time you own it. They are also very hard to resell.

^^Kind what I am thinking!! Our lake is pretty clean, but I still wouldn't want to wash my boat with it. Its also pretty hard water judging by the water spots.

The average person will never buy a new boat for 20% off MSRP. That is a great deal. Some buy them for that and many claim on here to but in the end for most that is a pipe dream. 15% is a better...

From what it says there wouldn't be enough damage for a salvage title. For that matter I don't see how there was anywhere close to enough damage/ loss for it to be a total. I'd bet that boat is a...
