Found this on IBoats. Looks like it’s damaged, or sunk. Full of water

looks like scuppers are plugged. Water should not be able to get that deep. That being said water wont hurt hull, battery ?

Talked to the broker, salvaged from hurricane Irma. Hole in engine cowling and boat was submerged in an unknown depth of water. 14k ?

Looks like a great project starting point.

I’m really tempted to hire a marine surveyor. No trailer, additional photos are here. What do you guys think?
Broker told me there is a good dent on the starboard side.

It’s in Homestead Florida

It’s a bid sale, February 1st is the auction, much like EBay. 14k is his price, has a regular title not salvaged.

Seems like it would be hard to get hurt at that kind of number. Repower, rewire, rerig . . . only thing is the dent will be tough to fix if you want it to totally disappear.

Looks like the bow eye where it attaches to the trailer was ripped out, nice crease in the right side. Looks to be a pretty bare bones model, no transom door. Would be a good sales pitch for Pacific boats, surviving a hurricane. I know the perfect name for it “IRMA”. Waiting for a reply back from Pacific.

Current bid is 7k, might be a good deal? I emailed the photos of the dents and gouges in the hull to Pacific to see if they could be repaired last week, no reply don’t think they are interested in used Pacific’s.

I don't see any significant damage to the hull, not sure about motor. The port side does not look dented, and knowing the construction of these boats, hard to imagine how it could get dented. The water in the hull looks like it is due to being tilted forward on the trailer, since there is no water in the stern. The decks are welded and water tight The scuppers may also be clogged. The bow is normal, the hook is recessed in the slot on the bow. It is welded integral to the hull and would be impossible to pull off. There is no protruding eye on the bow of these boats.... Looks like it needs to be cleaned up and dried out

If only I were closer, talked to a couple of local Florida Marine surveyors who weren’t to interested at looking at it, both had negative comments about the broker. I held off bidding, last time a checked it was at $7500.00. Just too many unanswered questions. Still looking !!!

Best
