Restored 1997 Baja 240 Sport. Fresh water boat 7.4L 454ci with ~210 hrs on it. Top end just under 70MPH.
Where do I start, ~$10,000 put into this boat. This boat has not only been babied but completely restored. Tore out the entire interior, even the deck right down to the stringers/hull and restored it from the bottom up. All new plywood deck, encapsulated with west system marine epoxy (3 coats top, sides and bottom). Then taped in with 1708 fiberglass before finally cross-layering the fiberglass tape to cover the new deck install with again, 1708 fiberglass. Won't find many boats around that have been restored from the actual deck structure up like this one. Beware of buying older boats with new interiors only that haven't addressed any structural/deck issues or rot! Read on for more info:
Brand new deck/interior (structurally and cosmetically). Stripped down to nothing but the stringers and motor. All new plywood decking, encapsulated 3x with west system installed, 1708 fiberglass taped and covered with 1708 fiberglass.
New carpet and upholstery throughout followed.
Complete gelcoat restoration - interior and exterior. Wet sand (x3 grits), buffed, polished and waxed.
Everything on the hull/transom has been re-sealed.
Custom trailer that has new bunks, new rims, new tires and new winch strap.
Revamped interior panels, dash panels, gauge panel, switch panels, etc.
Rear bench with storage, stainless steel swim ladder, swim deck, thru-hull silent choice exhaust system.
New adjustable LED cabin lights, new LED strip lights to illuminate cockpit area, new horn, new handles, new cup holders, new stereo compartment/cover.
Built in fire suppression system.
Trim tabs with newly replaced lines.
Stored with moisture control.
I have pictures of EVERYTHING (even entire process of restoring boat).
Things that the boat still needs/any outstanding issues are - new stereo system/deck (I have a marine subwoofer, amp and speakers), could use a new cockpit cover and trailer brakes don't work (master cylinder likely) - I drive with it fine but obviously wears more on your vehicles brakes. Depends how much you plan to drive with it. Also the throttle is a bit sticky, something I haven't yet looked into but likely shift cable just needs replacing.
