2000 Mobius Buying Advice
I am going to talk to a dealer tomorrow about his 2000 Mobius 21' Inmar direct drive for sale (18,990). Do any of you have good questions I should ask or things I should look out for?
I have been reading up and below is what I need to check:
1. Cracks in the gel coat
2. Carb or EFI motor
Help me out as this is my first time seriously shopping for a toy of this calibur. What do you think of the price?
It has: Tower/Subwoofer/Tower Lights/Bimini/Balast/Tandem Trailer
Need my first boat!

Make sure you take it for a test drive.....try to resist the euphoria of driving such a fine machine, and listen for noises, vibrations, etc.
Maybe some Mobious owners on this board can help you out with more specific stuff to look for.

Couple of Things
Couple of other things:
* Integrity of decking (floor) bounce around all over it to make sure there are no weaks spots hidden under the carpet.
* Prop and Shaft
* Make sure to check the platform mounts as you will read in some other posts there have been problems on some boats with them cracking through the transome
*Make sure all the gauges work properly especially the depth gauge.
* check the winch, axle(s), lights, and brakes on trailer
Steering make sure it is tight with limited "Play"
* Obviously check all the speakers to make sure they work as well as the CD/Tape/Changer which ever it has.
* Check the rear holdowns and rope cleat (please tell me you will never use this)
*Lastly, Check for any indications that the previous owner used the boat to pull a tube or any other inflated toy. If they did you will probably have to take the boat to a priest to have the demons driven away before you can wakeboard or ski effectively with the boat.
Hope this helps and good luck!!Matt Elliott
