Testing the waters...

Im testing the waters to see if anyone might be interested in my ski boat.I spent the latter half of the winter getting this boat ready for summer.EVERYTHING under the engine cover is NEW.
I spent countless hours and ALOT of money getting this boat lake ready so my family could enjoy it.Now noone wants to go to the lake....go figure.

What it is:
1989 Maxum 20ft open bow
Good interior,needs a few minor things is it all original
5.0 chevy small block,Mercruiser Alpha 1 outdrive.230 hp(before engine rebuild)
Motor is Completely rebuild bored .030 over,flat top pistons(9:1),crank turned .010, less than 20 hours on the motor
Marine grade gaskets and hardware used throughout,brass freeze plugs etc.
Brand new heads.
New distributor
New Starter
New alternator
New fuel pump
New tilt trim motor w/ new reservoir
New Edelbrock carb
New outdrive impellor and housing
New power steering pump
New engine water pump
New bilge pump
New battery(marine)
New boat cover
2- 4 blade props
18 pitch for serious pulling power runs about 35 mph with this prop
20 pitch for cruising,runs about 50mph with this prop(still pulls me out of the water,but it takes longer,im 6'1 200lbs on a 66 inch slalom)

am/fm cassette with 2 new speakers(still needs two more speakers and a modern cd player,but it works)
Im sure im forgetting a Ton of stuff I have done,but you get the idea.

Life jackets,knee board,fear factor tube,ropes,anchor,66 inch JOBE slalom ski with case,everything goes with the boat.

The list goes on and on.I have receipts for everything done to the boat.
Its been out 3 times this summer and ran flawless.Pulled me on a slalom with no problem.
Believe it or not,The three times I took it out,it only used 1/4 tank of gas...total.20 gallon aluminum underfloor fuel tank.

The boat still needs some cosmetic work on the outside.I buffed it out and it looked great for about 3 weeks,then started to fade again.I had planned on having it painted over the winter,but it is still VERY good looking as it is.Clear title for boat and tandum trailer,both are registered.

I am asking $5500.00 obo.

I will however consider a trade for a Landcruiser FJ-40,Jeep CJ5,CJ7,YJ,Early Bronco,Early Scout or a 4x4 tractor with a loader prefer a compact(yanmar,mitsubishi,jinma etc.Must be of equal or greater value and ill make up the difference in cash.I am VERY knowledgeable with all of the above vehicles,so dont try and offer me a beat up deer lease jeep and expect to get my boat.Im not trying to sound like a jerk,but im sure all of you have had something similar happen.
