I found a Doughboy 12x24 pool on craigslist, all boxes new and never opened and I paid $1,500 for it. I normaly do a good deal of research on items I buy but in this case I felt I had to act fast and fear I may not have gotten as good a deal as I had hoped for, let me explain. Turns out this Doughboy pool #0-4442-044 has been stored for 13 to 17 years according to the person I spoke with at Doughboy. It is said to be the same construction as some of their current models with the exception of this one having 4" top rails. The up side in back in the eightys, ninetys they only supplyed a 25mil liners and that is a upgrade on todays models. This pool included: complete pool w/liner, filter/pump, skimmer, hoses, themo cover. All appears to be in like new condition. I am wondering if anyone out there knows of any problems or issues with early Doughboy pools and if this was a OK deal or a Great deal.
