Hey Brett -

I have a beautiful well equipped 1982 382 "Patriot" that I either need to use more, or let her go. Unfortunately circumstances aren't looking good for me to be able to use her much. I am researching values and putting together a list of equipment. Enclosed is a picture to start. Feel free to contact me by phone or email if you think you might have an interest and have any questions. 305 968 5816

Very nice boat. Which one is yours? I saw a pic of two boats. The one with the dark blue I saw Patriot on it but there’s another boat pictured as well. Feel free to call me as well. 919-480-1175 or my cell 859-396-0612

The original boat on this posting sold in November. I sold it for $42,000. It was in great shape. It may be for sale again by the new owner.
