FC470 parts question

Saw a FC470 listed for sale that is missing the keel tube and speed tubes. Are these parts readily available? Any idea on parts costs and the cost for professional installation?

The cost for speed tubes and a keel will be more than a complete boat, if you can even find them for sale. these are milpro parts and hard to come by on the open market. Most likely the boat you are looking at doesnt have a deck either.
My best advice is to buy a complete boat, all tubes, deck, keel, everything. saves you time and money!

I agree with engarom. For just an IC Valve I was quoted $700. If you are looking for a FC470, I've got one. Just now getting around to gluing on the couple D-rings that came off. The boat also comes with the original 35hp MARS motor wit all of 45 hours of use.
