    Oh, I see the difference now. Sorry, I don't know much about this stuff. My brother races in the Deep South Drag Racing circuit and bought a salt water 280 on here a few years back and didn't need the lower. I put it on my bass boat and have been running it for years and have never hit anything. Obviously the previous owner modified it in some way. It added a few mph to my bass boat and has never given me one bit of trouble. I have it serviced every year at Chandler's Landing and have the service records to show. My intention isn't to defraud anyone. Thanks for taking the time to post the photos. It's obvious now that this one has been altered. I will post pics of both sides tomorrow. I will vouch for it being sound mechanically with a 100% money back guarantee if it's not everything the buyer is expecting.

    Thanks guys.

    Sometimes they cut the CLE or Sporty skeg to the 200 skeg shape, but this looks different, like a chunked leading edge was simply filed away, or the skeg was modded 200-style without trimming back the root in typical fashion.

    Jackson, good response and history. Also good offering money back if buyer not satisfied.
    If you or a buyer send it to someone like Titus or JC they may be able to fix/mod/clean that skeg for a certain application as long as it is not damaged. GL.

    Once again, thanks for the education. I called my brother and asked him about it. He told me that he purchased the complete 280 from a guy who had done quite a bit of tweaking to the set up.

    Here are both sides of the unit...





    To those that have made offers, thank you, but I'm going to hold out for $2,000.

    Best,

    Jackson
