  1. Hey infinity, have you seen the Saltare for sale in Tennessee? It’s a ‘90 model and looks like it’s been really taken care of. My holdback on it is it has wood stringers. I know they’re not guaranteed to be bad or need replacing, but I kinda told myself early on that I wouldn’t buy something that wasn’t all fiberglass. Any thoughts on that boat? https://chattanooga.craigslist.org/boa/d/supra-saltare-classic-1990/6505487089.html
  2. Hey man, thanks for the reply. I definitely don’t expect to buy a boat that old and never have to touch it. I’m just trying to get as much info as I can before I make a move. The current owner says it’s a 5.7 mercruiser, but he also wasn’t sure if it’s fuel injected or carbed, he just bought it to have fun and let the marina handle all the work. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense that the engine wouldn’t be perfectly clean. If you’re not doing your own maintenance on it you probably don’t hardly ever lift the cover. I’m thinking I’ll just factor in replacement manifolds and risers in my offer and go from there.
  3. Hey guys, new guy here from North Carolina. Im currently searching for a boat to wakeboard and surf behind and have found one that I would like some advice on. It is a 98 model V210 Medalist. It is about 8 hours away from me, but from the pictures it looks pretty nice for it's age. Only reason Im considering driving that far is because we really want a v drive and I'm not having any luck finding any near me. My main question is about the engine on this boat. The seller sent me this pic and I was expecting to see a perfectly clean engine (not sure why I thought that). It doesnt look too bad, but there are a few spots on it that are rusted. Im just curious if they are normal for an engine that old or if they could indicate some neglect or parts that need to be replaced. I have read about the issues people have with risers and manifolds rusting, and there is some rust in that area on both sides of the engine, so I didnt know if that rust that is visible is an indication of rust internally as well. Please let me know what you guys think!
