I have always loved these hulls. Why was the supercharger removed? What is the cruise, WOT with the 230 motor?

Super charger was removed when the engine was rebuilt and left off due to cost. It didn't do much for performance except for getting out of the hole. The boat does 18kt wot cruise at 15kt. Since the rebuild, we cut back the fuel so that the motor only spins at 3200-3300 rpms. This way the motor never gets run hard and never has a chance to over rev. Its just a matter of turning a screw to increase to fuel to get max rpms.

I yanked my stove and fridge out and made it into a huge storage chest... The top was only starboard, like that better. Great boats, miss mine...

I hate Craigslist

I really didn't want to list my boat on Craigslist but I figured, What the hell. I want it gone. I have received 8+ inquiries and this is just 2 of the responses I got. Be careful.

Hello,
Thank you for getting back to me.ok Can you assure me that it's
in good state and that i will not be disappointed with it.I'm ready to
pay your asking price and to be honest, i wanted to buy this for my
Son, but the issue is i am an oceanographer and i do have a contract
to go for which starts tomorrow and am leaving any moment from now.The
contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea
area. But I'm able to access email anytime as we will make use of
laptop so my only quickest payment option is PayPal as i can send
money via PayPal anytime.Since I'm requesting this transaction to be
done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the paypal fee/charges
on this transaction and if you don't have an account with paypal, its
pretty easy, safe and secured to open one.Just log on to
www.paypal.com. I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? I
have a mover that will come for it once payment clears and they will
take care of very necessary paper for me. So i look forward to hear
from you soon. will like to see more pics. I need the address where
the agent will meet you and your PayPal email address so i can send
the money now. Many thanks

David


Hello Seller,
Thank for the quick response. I'm seriously interested in buying this for my son and I think that this is a fair asking price. Currently I am at sea right now ( I am a marine engineer for the navy)but I really want this as a surprise birthday gift for my Son. I do not want to let him know anything about this until it gets delivered to him. First, I do have some basic questions. I would like to know why you are selling this item. Also, what is the condition of this item. Considering that I am currently at sea, I only have access to my paypal account to make payments because i don't have access to my bank account online because I cannot use internet banking on company computers. I have already accessed my paypal account and saw that I can make payments which is why I insisted on using PayPal to pay you. So if you could email me back with your PayPal email address, I can make the payment to your account today. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can set one up at www.paypal.com, it should take no more than 3 minutes. Paypal is a reliable and secure website, which will protect both you and I when dealing with this business. I will be responsible for the payment fees/charges on this transaction. Don't worry about the shipping or the picking up of the item, because once you notify me, my agent will come and pick it up from you once I have made the payment to you. To make the payment, I will also need your full Name,address and phone number. I am looking forward to here back from you.

Thank You!

Jack.

CL is the home of scammers you have to hide a sentence in you description to weed out the scammers like type"monkey" in the subject response....anything that states paypal or that long of a response is a scam. BUT CL is worth putting up with it becuase of how many people look for boats on it....I would also state to add all the keywords on the bottom so on the bottom after the description type in all the makes in model as the following...so it pops up for all relevant people who may be interested in your vessel....Some may consider this blackhat....But I will call it smart

THIS BOAT IS NOT A: duffy, calvin beal, deadrise, parker./..etc etc

Still for sale. I need it gone so I can move on.
Think about all the money you could make tuna fishing:lol:
If you know any one that is looking, tell them to make an offer.

This is one of the top tuna Boats in southern Maine. I've fished beside it many many times and am always impressed by how pretty and well maintained it is.
