Is 850 HP overkill on this boat? Seems like a lot.
That does seem like a lot. I guess I'd rather have too much power than not enough.

There are some signs of water intrusion damage. The layout is a bit odd, but not bad. Some bits are a little dated. The wonky railing and wavy rub rail may indicate some failed attempts at maneuvering. Even still, that's a hell of a deal. I mean, it is still floating.
You'd pay ten times that amount for a new boat like that.
