    Recently purchased, I have had a change in plans (see below, new baby = no time to use) and have decided to sell my 21' Novi style center console.

    It is a 1988 and has a 1996 Johnson 225hp Venom outboard, unkown hours. This particular outboard has a very good reputation, just do some research online. It was serviced just prior to my buying the boat and I have only fished once with it. The boat comes with new professionally installed decks, huge leaning post with tons of tackle storage, a nice Garmin GPS plotter, Raymarine bottom machine, VHF, and a Load Rite trailer.

    The boat needs nothing, it is stable, very pretty and ready to go today. Check out what a new 21' Seaway is going for these days..... http://www.boattrader.com/listing/2012-Seaway-21-Sportsman-97568108 and this boat is a bargin! I am only selling because we recently had a baby and I thought I would be able to fish this year but it just isn't happening. Like I said, I have only been out once and it was for a few hours at that.

    So here's where I stand: I paid $7,700 for the boat and aim to recover what I paid for it. So, please don't waste my time and yours with lowball offers (3K, 4K...) they will be declined. I would rather have the boat sit in my yard in case I ever get a chance to use it.

    Please call my cell phone to see the boat. 774-836-three-zero-three-two.

    Somethin' ain't quite right...the gentleman you bought it from was very eager to sell...and now you want to sell it four months later...?

    Full disclosure, please.

    Full disclosure? We have a new baby who is seven months old and consumes far more of my time than I ever expected. Why do you ask? Are you interested?

    I've bought and sold a lot of boats in my life and I have never sold a problem boat to an unsuspecting buyer,so I'm not sure where you're going with your opening post.

    Kids change a lot of things, same predicament with my boat! Good to see an apology though, we are not one of those other boards that people bash everything.

    Accepted, So...do you have any interest at all in the boat or were you simply calling me out?

    @Hooper,

    I actually saw the boat with my buddy when it was for sale down in Swansea about five months back...I was very interested at the time, but looking for something on the smaller side so I bought a 2007 Leblanc 1610 in Kittery...
