  ****** The previous winner did not pay, so I am relisting my boat again****** Up for sale is my 1978 Sea Ray SRV 260 Express Cruiser. We have had a lot of fun on this boat. We would go on our local lake, find a secluded cove, and spend the weekend on her. Nothing like being on the hook for the weekend! During the winter of 2009-2010 I forgot to open the drains on the engine block. When I took it in to my local boat shop for a spring check, they found the block was cracked. A costly mistake on my part. I had them put in a new long block and told them to go through the engine and outdrive to the tune of $6,000.00. You will find in the pictures section the final bill on what they found and repaired/replaced. The summer of 2010 we had her out four different weekends. Travel soccer entered our lives and after I fogged the motor at the end of the season in 2010, we have not used it since. I have come to the realization that it would be better for someone to get some of the same fun that we experienced for several years. I have also included a photo I took on our last weekend that year just to show what a few hours of buffing and teak cleaning can do to make her shine.Here are the particulars: 700 Original hours, New long  block V8 350 Mercruiser 4bbl Carb, Mercruiser outdrive with new impeller and SS lines, Trim tabs, Pressurized water system, Dometic Potty, A/C D/C Mini Fridge, Alcohol stove, Seats 7, Sleeps 4, Teak swim platform and SS telescoping swim ladder, Fish finder with depth gauge, VHF Radio with Weather Alert Channels and fiberglass antenna,  Red Sunbrella Bimini and lots of teak wood. The steel trailer with comes with electric brakes, a spare tire and  all four tires were replaced 5 years ago.The only issue that I know of is the gas tank has a small leak that began as it was sitting in my driveway. It is a 100 gallon aluminum tank. I had a shop give me an estimate of $475 to remove the tank and repair the leak. Please contact me with any questions and good luck!
