  1. Hi Crew, I'm looking at a 2006 Avy that has a bit of gel coat cracking going on. It's around the nav light plug (which I've seen on multiple boats, pretty common) and some smaller ones along the top cap, above the rub rail. Given the pics, would you consider this a deal breaker, or something that's ok to purchase with the understanding it needs to be fixed? What's a ballpark figure for a good fiberglass shop to fix these? Thanks! https://www.dropbox.com/s/bqyo61d81uskuch/IMG_0418.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/gcaafid4by8mqxw/IMG_0419.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/98gzowh5944siui/IMG_0420.JPG?dl=0
  2. Avy Pre-Purchase Questions

    Jake, I'm not sure what the accident details were. There were enough question marks about the boat's history and the work that was done to it (albeit good work) that I didn't want to take a chance. There's another one (yellow) by you in Fairfield/Vacaville that I've been looking at as well, but I'm not a fan of the Evo tower so I haven't really pursued it. The nice part is I have the luxury of waiting--my kids are still pretty young so I don't have to get it NOW. Just want to be ready to jump on the right deal if it pops up.

    Thanks Rhino--shoot me a PM if you come across a C4 with the Tribal Tower near you like this one. I'd be happy to head over Donner to check it out.

    Well d@mmit, wouldn’t you know that the insurance HIN search turned up an accident that wasn’t disclosed. That combined with the other questions tells me to walk away. Shame, it’s a really nice Avy but I don’t want to buy $35k worth of someone’s problems. Hopefully I’ll be back in another more worthy Avy soon. Thanks again for the help!
  5. Avy Pre-Purchase Questions

    Thanks Troy and Rhino. I think my big issue now is that I don't have the history and the stuff that this dealer/servicer has replaced are all on the floor--carpet, batteries, lower cabin speakers, etc. Makes me wonder if there was a flooding/water issue and what I could be getting into there. I just don't want to make a big mistake, knowing what can happen with electrical issues.

    Just realized the “bulkhead” could be the front edge of the hard ballast tank. True?
  7. Hi all—been lurking for a while and am in the process of closing a deal on a 2006 C4 Avy in very nice condition. Before I do, I have a couple questions as I’m hesitant to trust anyone in a used vehicle transaction. This is being sold by a guy in Rancho Cordova, CA who both services and buys/resells boats. We’ve agreed on a price and will be lake testing this week followed by him taking me through the boat mechanically. At this time of year, a third-party presale inspection is tough to come by without waiting a couple weeks minimum. 1) I’ve read that the boat history reports are essentially a waste of money—is there anything else I can do to verify that nothing major has happened to the boat? Can my insurance agent look for past claims based on the HIN? 2) Many of you have talked about the Enzo sac that sits in the rear locker and then goes forward under the port or starboard seats. In this boat, there’s a bulkhead under both rear seats that divides the under-seat storage from the locker. Is that standard? 3) Anything I should be looking for when it comes to red flags that there was some previous issue with the boat that’s been covered up? Thanks in advance for any guidance...I’m looking forward to joining the community of Centurion owners one day soon. Tony
