    It’s a 24 nauset . It was posted on here 2 years ago . Needed windows , paint and some work to the gunnel. I’m looking for something a little bigger for my 2yr daughter and wife. Do you think I would be going backwards go to the pilot cove?
    Thanks

    Yes! Stay away from that hull design. Your Nauset 24 handles 100% better and I believe it even has a wider beam than the Pilot Cove. There is a bunch of info floating around the forum regarding Pilot Cove boats, and not much is good. They might resemble a Fortier, but they are NOT a Fortier.

    I agree that the Nauset 24 is a nice boat. If you want to go bigger look for a Webbers Cove 26 or 29'. Both are the same hull with one longer hull and the keel extended I believe. The AJ 28' is also a good boat, and don't forget the General Marine 26'.

    Thanks guys, what’s your opinion on the 31 blues seas with a 3208 cat. It’s been sitting for a few years and been for sale for ever it seems. For $23k and a few grand in a injection pump . I don’t mind getting my hands dirty .

    Royal Lowell design- I like that lifting/spray rails added to the hull. Looks like a big step up, and you can weekend on it with the family!

    My buddy and I looked at her a couple years ago. At that time she needed mainly cosmetics, but the owner/yard couldn't get the motor to run so my buddy decided to walk away. He ended up getting another similar vintage Blue Seas with a Volvo...very nice boats.
