Every single boat I have ever seen for sale is an 'ex race' boat! lol
Even if it is an ex race boat, like mine, then it doesnt mean jack sh*t! I mean, a hull is a hull. What makes a boat a race boat is whats bolted to it! When I bought Motivation I was told about is ski racing history but the boat as I bought it wasnt how is was when it was raced. I think the only original item from is racing days is the livery!

I should say, if I put my money where my mouth is, it'd all go a bit quiet.

Not really the case, some suffer from severe structural problems & damage, Id view an Ex race boat as a serious structural look before I even considered it. They do have a hard life, but it depends so much on how they were looked after whilst in competition. To give but a typical example Had the P21 bow tank break loose, guess where it went..... out through the stb side fwd. It left a big hole, boat had to go back in the mould for SB to carry out the repair, Ski Racing they do not attrach so much damage. As mentioned in other threads, Bentleys Oyster Bar, lovley looking boat Took so much damage at Margate one Year it never returned to the Racing circuit, Apache stopped racing for the same reason the Hull had just reached it's limit & usefull life & wasn't cost effective to continue. Dare I say hulls are not indestructible; Id go so far as to say you can break any using the right combination or should that be lack of it.
