I'll bet I could get it for $50, is this the one with a powerbox fin box?
Looks like the foot pedal is missing?

nah, the footpedal is just flipped back, they go flush with the surface.
and, i believe that one would have the powerbox.
also, it appears to have the hole in the mastfoot attachment to be able to use a regular singlebolt screw in universal, rather than a mistral one...thats handy.
id buy it was in my neighbourhood.

I heard from the seller, unfortunately it has a mistral fin box, whatever that is. And the rope is broken in the mast track, sounds like more of a project than I need.

if you are interested..
its only about 6 screws to hold the mast track in..pop it out and its pretty easy to replace the rope.
and, there is no mistral specific finbox.

To get an answer to your question about the finbox, I would ask whether the fin is attached and screwed in from the deck or from the bottom of the board.

Yeah I asked that question and the response was it's a mistral finbox not a powerbox, I should get a clarification.
I did a little research on the board and what I found indicated the Equipe's that had that color scheme were from about 91' and had a powerbox.
Any other general thoughts about that particular board and it's performance?
