Don't worry about the hours number, just do the standard engine and running checks on inspection. It's really important to get a compression test done on the engine. This will tell you what condition it's in. Generally, they are good for 2500 hours before needing a refurb, and relatively non expensive when they do.

At that price forget the hours if it is in half decent shape snap it up before somebody else does. At 20K you have cash left to do engine refresh if required. That boat is worth conservatively 25-30K depending on condition.

It is hard to purchase any ski boat with FNR gearbox for less than 20K. Let alone a top of the line US built Ski Nautique

Possible problem here, still planning on checking it on on Saturday at this stage but I need to tow whatever I get with a family sedan (1500Kg braked towing capacity) which would be fine if I got a Spectre or similar, but may be an issue moving into something like this. I asked the guy what the weight of it was and he had no idea. Does anyone know what these things weigh and if it would be safe enough to tow??? otherwise its back to the drawing board...

1500kg is really going to limit what you can buy.

That nautique will be around 1100kg dry. Last time I checked tandem easy tows weighed 430kg. By the time you add fuel, gear and people in your vehicle your going to be over.

I just had a single axle trailer weighed and it was 309kg's. Maybe look for something on a single axle too.

My 81 Naut will scrape under your 1500kg limit but won't be for sale for another 2 months.

Here's my boat I bought in August from Adelaide.

Have given it a quick respray ready for Summer as the old paint was fading in places on the top deck. Boat has kept the same name though.

1960's Merlin Sabre.

Here's a different take on a spectre, It's a bow rider been around for a while now.

gday jeff , welcome to the forum. Very tidy old meos you have there. I had a hornet as well for about 5 years and had nothing but fun with it. Had a 302 windsor in it which made it very economical and had a high pole and bimini on it, as far as i know its still getting around sa waters today.

Gday Southern
Thanks for the welcome :wink:
What was the name of your ol' hornet?
I'll keep an eye out for her.

Is this the specter that used to be purple? Was converted to a bow rider? You don't see many old boats wrapped...looks good!

Hey Jeff, when i got the hornet it was called zodiac, didnt realy like the name but too scared to change it being bad luck n all. When i sold it it got renamed extasy ( not sure on how they spelt it) then apparently got reversed over by a houseboat, the good news out of that was the insurance company gave it a full birthday. Havent heard any more about it since and havent seen it in around 6 years.

G'day

Wrapping works out a lot cheaper than spray painting. I got quoted 2500 for a waterline up and top deck wrap on a 19 foot boat.

Not my taste but that spectre certainly looks like its not the age it is with the wrap and being a bow rider.

I got quoted 1700 to wrap a Spectre a couple of years ago. Seemed an alright price at the time I thought.
