    28 Carolina Classic, 34 Webbers Cove
    My son is considering selling his 34 Webber Cove to get something in the 40' range.. The boat is a 1985. Its a working lobster boat. Open stern, dry stack. Volvo 265hp TAMD 6o series. About 10K on the engine. She starts and runs everyday. Cruises at 10-11kts at about 2,000rpm. We hit almost 14Kts surfing down a wave this weekend.. Impressive in a following sea compared to what Im used to. The hull is solid and pretty damn thick! We replaced the transducer this spring. It has working electronics (radar, VHF, new Garmin 1042xs.) He'd be asking mid $30K range. Needs new roof and work on house. IMG_9385.JPG IMG_9382.JPG

    Boat is in Scituate. There are a few WC out there.. Having been on a 34 WC on good and bad days I will say they make a nice boat. Hope you find something in your price range..

    Post up the contact info for the free Webco! I'm sure there is someone crazy enough lurking around here to take on the challenge.
