If it is a cored Bruno that is the reason they are out of business. If it is solid glas it is a good sea boat.

I wouldn't, I'd find someone else to own it.

that's the same year as my cored hull, not a problem with it, just don't drill a bunch of holes in it and it will be fine. if it already has water in it stay away.

I never heard of things like tops and hulls falling apart because of wet balsa.....it just gets heavy and rots the balsa

I would ask more questions about the motor...220 hp?....is not going to be a good enough power to push that boat above 10kts....so again you have to ask yourself ..WHAT AM I STARTING WITH...needs power.. needs new running gear...needs new top.....32,000....and you have to put another 70,000 to get her tuna fish ready...:rolleyes:

I'm not buying the boat, However I did have some crazy ideas in my head. I don't need a fast boat. 10kts is fine for me in montauk. But I'm going to just buy a small 23ft boat and save my money until I can comfortably afford my next big downeast. Most likely a 35ft Duffy. Loved my 28Bhm but i wanted bigger.
