    Rather steep for a scrap boat! would not even try and fix that one.
    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    @MuskokaKy that's what I was thinking also!

    I like the caption "needs a new owner who can do major fiberglass work" - on the flip side anyone looking for a ZO conversion?

    Probably better off parting that boat - interior is sharp, platform, gauges, ENGINE.

    In market speak "minor cosmetic damage".
    Great reason not to have monkey bars...

    @DW The tower held it together so it didn't sink.

    But I can't take on another project right now...

    Be curious what they actually get for it. Looks like 8K-10K worth of parts (including trailer) and a bunch of stuff you would have to pay to haul away.

    Wow. Do hope the driver is ok as well. Noticed that the impact was hard enough to break drives seat from its mount to the floor as it looks to have been set on top of passenger seat. :/

    Hope the driver is ok too! Maybe one of the surf barges wasn’t paying attention?

    If @eleeski doesn't think it is fixable you know it is bad.

    I bought a response that looked like that with 60 hours on it! Paid $3500 for it! It turned out like new!

    I saw a 75 Nautique with similar if not worse damage. Saw the buyer ski behind it in as is condition and then saw the boat again after the repair. If you are a body guy, this could be a workable boat.

    16k way too much!
  • MuskokaKyMuskokaKy Posts: 275 Baller
    @teammalibu , before and after pics? Would have thought it was a right off / parts boat at this point.

    Would take the motor and ZO off his hands for my TSC1...other than that would seem rather worthless.

    @lpskier those windshields ain't cheap. Could be 12K in glass plus a frame.

    And metal flake red gel.

    Top and bottom deck and the way the glass and tower are bent I'm betting the hull is not straight. Would expect to find cracking in both sides of boat.

    @floridagm, the crew should just be glad the driver had “fast reflexes”
