Engine and transmission were fully serviced prior to 2015/2016 winter lay-up.  In addition to the normal annual service, the valves were adjusted, raw water impeller replaced and dual carbs were overhauled.
Engine and transmission have 659 hours since professional rebuild in late 90's.She will do an honest 40mph.  For those of you whom are unfamiliar with this year/size of Resorter, they were used as tournament water ski boats at Cypress Gardens, Florida at the time.  Although the wake is very flat at 30mph, the 16.5' has a medium-hard chine forward and softer chine aft then transitions to nearly zero deadrise near the shaft log.  This gives it a reasonably pleasant ride in chop at speed when considering her size and weight.  Interior is original and in near perfect condition.Hull was professionally double planked in late 90's.All bright work is in true "show" condition.Collectors/enthusiasts will be hard pressed to find a nicer example.Absolutely no disappointments and in true turn-key condition.Nice Easy Loader trailer included.  Bearings recently serviced. Newer tires.All badges, emblems, pennants and flag staffs are intact and in nice condition.Quality/custom mooring cover included.  Road cover is also included.Spare propeller is included.Original owner's manual which documents engine id # included.Various spare engine parts/tune up kits/carb kits included.All required Coast Guard safety items included.Fenders and lines included.One defect:  The amp gauge on the dash does not read.  There is a back-up gauge in the battery compartment under the seat.  The gauge is in very nice condition and can be professionally restored for approximately $275 if so inclined.She has had her annual half a dozen refresher coats applied last spring as well as two coats of racing bronze bottom paint.  She has not been splashed this summer which means she is absolutely "show ready" for those whom have the interest. This is a good one.
