More about your 233
Recently Purchased this. There was an add for sale and became intrigued by the history and the reviews raving about the ride of these boats. It sat in a pole barn for a few years so I am currently going though everything to make sure it is all working.

found it difficult to express myself here,since it's a public
site.Could you please get back to me on:( james.kwaku80@yahoo.co.th  )
for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
Mr James Kwaku
