Good luck with the sale, McDonnell guys always seemed top notch to me if I am thinking of the CT Company. They came up to survey my TAMD41PA's during the sale of my boat.

That picture is of the boat before I cut the top off and built a hardtop...trying to get some pics up...the keel is cut and tapers back up into the hull. I have a single engine Jc also with the keel cut and the twin motors it performs much better in a following sea than the single McDonnell marine in ct has done the major engine work on the boat. I yanked the motors a few winters ago and we did all the work in their shop top notch operation. Brian McDonnell knew the boat from the previous owner and knows the history of the boat. He will tell you how well the engines have been maintained- oil changes etc....

Great boat

I've been out with Willy several times on this boat. It's a great boat that handles real well. Can't wet to get out out on your new ride in the Spring! Good luck with the sale.

Willy

I have fished many times on this boat , Willy takes good care of it doesnt beat on it... and most of all it raises fish. I think you should replace with it with a 36 Northern Bay.

It is a cored hull. Vertical grain 3/4 balsa. As w most late eighty boats it has quite a bit of glass lay ups to go w the core....The last survey was done two years or three years ago and the surveyor checked the hull w the moisture meter no problems were found. I increased the water intakes for the raw water system and re did those through hulls and they were dry and sealed w resin. I decored resin coated and filled w hull and deck and gelcoated then reinstalled new raw water pick ups w life caulk. There are two underwater lights that the holes were also properly decored. The top is also core new only a few years ago every window cut out was also properly decored and sealed properly.
