Hi! This is my first post and I am hoping someone can help me out with a few questions. I may have the opportunity to pick up a Captiva 206, however I don't know anything about Rinker boats. I looked at the HIN number and it ends in 92 - does this indicate the model year? The boat has an Alpha One outdrive and a 350 Magnum, however the previous owner didn't winterize the boat and the block is now cracked. I thought about picking it up and giving it a little TLC - as it's in desperate need of it. The blue Gelcoat on the sides of the boat are faded, and the rear sundeck it all torn up. It's obvious that it wasn't taken care of. Generally I would avoid a broken boat like the plague - but i'm intrigued with the possibility of picking this one up for the big price of possibly FREE.
Any information on these boats is greatly appreciated. My only experience prior to this is with an 01 Mariah Diablo 180 (which I loved dearly). However, I sold it due to a back surgery I had done over the summer. I wasn't planning on jumping back into boating so soon... but this looks like it could be a diamond in the rough.
