Default Opinion on this boat

https://pensacola.craigslist.org/boa...888254467.html

What’s your opinion on this boat? Asking for a friend. Do you think an ipilot could be mounted and have enough length to work well. I know Rhodan sells an 84” length

Thanks

Know someone, was a member on here had a proline, Having known the issues he had, I would never own one. Then again, I would never own a Mercury engine either!!!

I have an old proline with new Suzuki engines. Love that old boat. Yeah she's a bit bitchy at times. Needs rewiring. Some bumps and bruises. But for a 1997 hull we keep killing fish on her. (Releasing many of course, per regulations.)

I'd offer 12k and put 20k into new engines and call it a good deal. Where else could you get that much boat for 32k?

Ide take my 20k and buy a $2000 set of golf clubs, $8000 worth of golf balls and spend the last $10000 on whiskey before I bought that boat...

But that's just me.

I own a 2007 24ft Super Sport with twin 4 stroke Suzuki's. This is my second Proline and has been a great boat. Never had any issues with either one. Great fishing and family style boat. Definitely have the motors checked, never know how motors have been treated.
