No doubt that that is a great hull and the JD 220 is a great engine. Probably not suitable for the tuna speed demons on this site that want there DE to have the cruise of a twin OB CC, but for a realistic DE owner who wants a lobster boat , she seems like a great set up. I bet that she cruises at 11-12 kts and is extremely economical. Its exactly what I would want.Thats kind of what Im basing this opinion off of. At the end of the day, she is a 20 year old work boat. But I guess that without looking at the boat I really couldn't say for sure, But it just seems a little high for a 20+ year old hull and a motor that has 7500 hrs on it.
Any ways, the boat interested me and I was just trying to get some feed back on weather Im off base or not.
