Difficult for me to tell from that angle; there should be a build sheet glassed in (usually by the right knee, sometimes on the side, sometimes under the pad in my experience with New Wave boats).

It is a slalom boat; I'd guess Fanatic II, but could be a Fanatic or Stealth; hopefully someone who paddled all of them and has seen them in person enough can identify it from the one image.

Dude can't find the build sheet, but if anyone is interested it's outside Philadelphia.

Looks like it's got bags, which is like half the value of the boat. Also saddle looks pristine, and very little wear on the bottom. A little sun bleached, though.

I'd pick it up for fun, but don't know how much fun that would actually be. Looking for a Viper, actually. In case anyone is holding.

Definitely one of the Bat/Fanatic series - looks like a very flat deck which leads me to say Superbat as opposed to Extrabat or Fanatic. More pics or some measurements are needed.

My first thought was Fanatic or F2 - The chine would be a dead giveaway, but can't see that

From that angle, it is very hard to tell, but the bow seems narrow for a Bat (Super or Extra)

They are a lot of fun - these days, I would clip the bow spike and shorten the stern a bit - especially if you get it cheap and are just looking for a play boat.

Yeah, he only wants $150. I picked up what's maybe a Bat of some kind a few weeks ago and would like to get a Viper. There's one in Richmond I might take for two bills. It's not a lot of money for someone who has a job :(

but I am not one of those people at the moment. Lots of time, not a lot of capital.
