Owner's Sidenotes:
I purchased this boat from the original owner last year, fished
and played extensively this past summer. It is a proven fish catcher…
with Dorado, Yellowtail, Yellowfin, Calicos, and Halibuts all hitting the
deck this past summer. I came down from a 37 foot Egg Harbor and
decided this boat is just too small for my needs…now I need to go back up.

This boat will make the wife and kids happy AND impress your 3-4 fishing
buddies during the Tuna season. You can bloody the decks on Saturday,
and entertain your friends for a Sunday bay cruise (there is a retractable
couch in the transom) …or take the wife and kids to Catalina for the
weekend. Recreational scuba diving in local spots in comfort and warmth
can be done as well.

If this boat were 5 feet longer I wouldn't be selling it!!!

The boat has been meticulously maintained from the original owner with
many upgrades installed in the last three years.
Ask me to see the records!!

The starter and starter solenoid were replaced mid-summer '04 as well as
two new batteries being installed.

Inverter needs to be replaced (or fixed) it blew out and I don't know if it is a fuse
or internal. Wiring is in place, however.
