Phantom 20

Hi,

Just bought a phantom 20 - can anyone help me with the age of the hull?

Thanks

Thank you for that - she's now gone into our bodyshop to have a freshen up and some decals put on her, so I will check once its done.

Looked at the blue one and it was falling apart! So enquired on this one and got such a good price I couldn't say no!

And yeah the boat is really lovely, all new interior inside and gauges, carpeted nicely, engine only 120 hours from new and the hull is in really good shape. Got a few things thrown in with the deal too and a full tank of petrol so well chuffed! Really lovely boat.

Fair enough. I use to have a cleaver on an old phantom back in the day and it went like #@%$ off a shovel! I also heard that choppers are meant to be good for phantoms but don't know much about props really. Is the laser the best its going to get then?

you could try a chopper but they like to run high so unless you have got low water pick ups thats a no no. Also they are a bit of a handful
