The boat was an award winner (Best In Show) at the first Sea Ray Homecoming held in Knoxville, Tn. in 2012 and it was featured in Sea Ray Living Magazine in 2012 

It is only one of two that came down the line with twins. Mr. Ray took the first one for himself and this one was put up for sale.

It is not perfect and it will need a new floor. Not sure about the stringers. Newer tires on the trailer and it pulls great. Dragged it down and back to Knoxville (1600 miles) with no problems. Mooring cover and bimini top included.
