    Hi fellas! My name is Tim and I plan on buying a Caravelle 187 LS Bow Rider tomorrow afternoon. I have been eyeing this boat for quite some time now and me and the owner have reached an agreement of 4 grand for it. I am here to ask for all of your opinions to know if I should buy it or not.

    I am not sure how to really add images on here but hers the zidozone link for it is

    The major cost of a small 2005 boat will be the mechanicals. Bring a mechanic along and take a test drive in the water if you can.

    If you can't drive 7 year old boat, there's a problem and you should find another boat.

    True, true. Still for sale. Tim, were you delayed or did you spot something of concern?
