Here comes the Turnip truck !

This vessel, a 28 Mako, owner claims to have a new engine on the port side and a rebuilt engine on the starboard.

It is ovbious from the photo, this is a LIE. The crud build up on the engine is worse than most marine engines you see of any vintage, the risers are so corroded they may crumble when the engine is run.

The owner could not make the survey, wonder why not?
I would have given him an ear full.

This crap is caused by the broker. He took photos of the boat for the listing, and never lifted the engine compartment cover for a look.

My compliments to the buyer for not throwing a fit. He had every right too!

Hey mister seller, I was not on the Turnip truck.
