According to the Sotar price list.....they are worth $2085 each retail and he wants $4500 for the pair.

Sport quad is a four wheeler.

I love people who pay full retail and the expect to get full retail. The paddles are probably $200 each retail.

He probably got the deal 20% off

Glad to hear it. Mine had counter-sunk wood screws (too big) and buttonheads (proper) securing handles and hinges, handles are starting to rust after 4x on water, outer (bottom) seal is loose, if the aluminium were any thinner you could crumple it like paper. I'll be amazed if it lasts 6 years.

Do they still use the laceration style locking latches? Agreed all hardware needs to be stainless. My buddy has one and it was cheap. So far no major problems however

I have two of them and finish is really the only issue, the main alum body is fine.

I can't understand why they would use the hardware they did. It would take zero additional $ and time to do it right with hardware that made the box look 1000 time better. Even the large head bolts look like someone who did not care about the product picked them out. And the counter sunk screw head in a non counter sunk app. are just stupid. I think I spent $20 to change out the entire box with stainless / nylock.
