    It is a nice looking boat, looks in great shape for the age! The dash has the "dated" look that would have had me guessing in the late 80's as well, but if I was guessing solely on the exterior pics, I would have guessed late 90's... Who made Arrivas? I don't beleive they were ever sold in Canada, I am not familiar with them.... What engine/drive combo?

    Brunswick Marine made them. Not sold in Canada that I know of. cost approximately 30k to 40k when new. In the states they are most prevelant in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, the Carolinas, and Washington, followed by the rest of the SE coastline areas, the NE and the NW states. There appear to be very few located outside of those states, most notably skipping Chicago (Illinois), New York, the entire Midwest, and California.

    It has the 5.7 with the alpha one merc drive. Best boat I have owned! I may end up parting ways with this boat, but we will see.

    That is a great looking boat, looks like you take great care of it. How long have you owned it?
    It's good to see another boater on here.

    Oh yeah, Fluid Film works great for boats, too! It was originally manufactured for the Navy to fight salt water corrosion. It stops rust on contact, prevents rust on all metals and will even shine up fiberglass. :D
