It needs a good bath & some maint/ re-rigging, Electronics upgrade.
Looks like I've joined the hole in the water club.....:cool:

Good boat. A 90 gallon tank should get you there and back. Any ideas yet as to how you plan to use it .... your limits, etc.? The reason I ask is that I bought a 23' Wellcraft not long ago that I don't plan to use until I can repower it but I'm thinking maybe we could buddy-up when necessary. I figure i can run 35 -45 miles out under good conditions.

Ronnie .... we shared some PMs about these side imaging units a while back and I'm still interested. Probably not going to do anything in the next month or two though. I think the best price I found on one was something like $1300 which was more than I wanted to pay.

90 gallons means 30 miles using the current saftey formula.

B.O.A.T. = Break Out Another Thousand! But that only applies to boats over 25foot. This one will only be half that!

But seriously, that's a nice ride!! You'll be happy with it.

That depends on the fuel burn. He may be getting 2mpg with this rig. That would put it at 60 miles. Any idea what you burn #s are Brian?

Lite Liner,

Welcome to the boating world. The world where your wallet gets worn out from pulling it out so many times. :D

They say the two happiest guys in the world the day the boat trades is:
The buyer.
The seller.

One year later, the guy that bought the boat wants to sell it.
The guy that sold it, wants it back.

If I can make it look respectable this weekend, and somehow find a place
for roughly 60g. of 2 mo. old gas that's a little stinky, I may take it out for
a test run. have to go in @ Hidden cove, though. can't fit under the LE bridge!
No tags on boat, either. I had planned on using all winter to get it ready for spring, but I may get a wild hair...:cool:
Question: Does anybody know if a boat like this has a fuel tank drain?
if not I have an electric pump that'll pull it out Oklahoma-style.:D

Get some fuel stabilizer and sea foam and burn it. Just keep refilling as to not burn only old gas. Had the same problem when I picked up my bay boat. Except the gas was mroeo like 6months old... I didnt have a problem. Plus with gas being $3 per gallon it would be ashame to watse 120's worth...
