    Pics look like someone drilled a hole through the nose of the skiff?

    Isn't that for towing?

    It's a nice skiff but with an ok condition Ramlin trailer and that many hours on the engine that price seems a little high. Also that above deck gas tank installed inside a hatch isn't safe. Looks like the aluminum tank is still in there.

    Factory reinforced tow eye. Supposed to open ocean tow better with a bow up attitude. The yacht tenders have lifting eyes in the cockpit.

    I'm assuming the tank had a leak so they put In a plastic one instead of repairing it.
    Seems very high for having a rigged fuel tank.whats the cost to replace factory tank? Can't imagine it being cheap.a couple grand maybe??
    Awesome boat otherwise

    Wow. Yeah. Don't take a picture of that. That's like a pic of a hot chick wearing big girl hip hugging underwear.

    Hopefully the trolling motor batteries are not in the same hatch. Gas fumes and sparks don't mix well.

    I don't think that's a problem cause there is no room for anything in there

    Excuse my request for education. Ok to make the boat right, probably needs a new gas tank and changing of all fuel lines, "OK" trailer, I take that as needs a new trailer and a motor with 800 hrs. Is this the consensus of everyone? There is no mention to the condition of the hull. To put it right what would be a realistic price/offer for the boat?

    18,500 would be a deal. Doubt that would happen though, more realistically 21,500

    Guess it depends on what your willing to spend and how bad you want it.

    That hull is a very diverse and is timeless! For all the hiccups I think 21k would not be too far off. This is a HB professional, new this boat would be mid 50's. Usually people take care of them but someone with some $ can make it shine. At least is hasnt been sunk like a few that have come through here.... :D

    I believe in 200 there was two Whipray models the 16 and the 17.8. Then they changed the name of the whipray 17.8 to the professional later, but its the same boat. My buddy has this same 2002 boat with the 17.8 Whipray decal. At least this is how the progression was explained to me.

    Pretty boat and judging from the offers he has got at the boat ramp. (serious cash offers) the price seems on par for people looking for this specific boat.

    The 17.8 whip and 17.8 Pro are different boats. The made changes to the 17.8 Whip and it became the Pro
