Capt Rick, thank you.

I've had numerous request for this information so figure I will post it here. I never mind answering questions even if your not interested in the boat because I love boating and engineering. If I can help someone else make the step to any down east do not mind chatting it up.

The height at the helm, is just at 6'3".

The inside of the cockpit is 78" wide, inside of gunnel to inside of gunnel, carries this from the helm aft.

The cockpit is 82" overall from the inside of the transom to the cabin trunk.
The cockpit to the aft seat is 87"
The transom has a tuna door, it is 18-20" with the bottom open for live well, coolers or anything else.

Remember this is unobstructed 87" x 78" of cockpit. Just shy of 50sq.ft. of cockpit.

Jim! Come on, you want one in green, because I know you have a blue one now!

I don't even know if I am selling it anymore, probably the worst salesman, I have a broker trying to get me to list it, never posted it anywhere but Noreast, THT and here...

always wanted to look at your boat, but didn't want to bother you and be a tire kicker until i was able to sell mine. do you have any pics of the interior, inside of the cockpit, wheelhouse? i'm in NH, where are you located?

I'm not a typical boat seller if you will. I love downeast boats and will talk about them for hours. The boat is currently in Sandwich Marina on the Cape Cod Canal, maybe there for another week or month, all depends on the fishing.

In there interest of saving bandwidth, here is the link to her.

General Marine 26 - 1997 - The Hull Truth - Boating and Fishing Forum

The only thing that has changed was the stove and fridge were removed for more storage. I did the replacement parts out of Starboard and not happy with them at all. Working on something better this winter if the boat lasts.

The other thing is its going to be tough to let her go! If you have any questions at all let me know, I don't care if your a tire kicker or just out to shoot the breeze. Always more than welcome to take a look at her...

very nice. i've got a stove and fridge. stove was never used, and the fridge kept the wife happy but not critical. cockpit gunnels look low, how high are they? over your knees? service records for the engine? is there enough room out back for cockpit controls? do you giant fish alone?

would love to take a ride down sometime to take a look at her, and talk

I just removed it for more storage and none of it worked, the wiring is still in place for the fridge. Funny now that I have a daughter I wish I kept the fridge almost bought one at west marine but thinking of doing a nice cabinet.

Really no need for cockpit controls, you could put them on as I know there are other's that do have them.

What I do, is try to fish the two upper rod holders in the cockpit, controls are just out of arm reach but that is how close they are. I also like to fish them here because of the typical fish are the furthest away when right under the rod and come to the surface right behind the stern of the boat and do their dive down and away from the prop. The reason I like doing this is, I can dart him on a 10' leader literally while he is just 1' or so under water lets say. When I used to fight out of the stern, he would always do that death circle and be about a foot under water 10' of the transom, am I making sense here? Alot of times I can dart him as he is actually still coming up on his circle.

Yes I do fish for just about anything alone!

Service records for the engine, first off I open you up to getting her inspected by who ever you want too. I do all my own engine work and have. NEDDA/Power Products even talked me out of getting the engine surveyed back in 2008 when I bought her. They really like that TAMD41PA block. I just did my own basic survey and dealt with problems when they came up. I believe I should be able to pull all the parts that I have ordered from Marine Parts Express. I'm a Chief Engineer in the United State's Merchant Marine, Mass. Maritime graduate with a degree in Marine Engineering, so not just a backyard mechanic.

Very impresive. Tried talking my son into going there, but no joy. When's good for you to come down and take a look? Also, what are you moving up/down to?

You've got a gorgeous boat there. I've admired the GM 26 since I first saw one several years ago. I also looked at the photos you posted at THT and am curious as to the exhaust fitting protruding from the transom...is that an additional silencer or muffler?

Stepped out of town sort of quickly...

That is a Salisbury Muffler, may be spelt wrong. It takes the exhaust and blows it straight down, just have to make sure your engine can take the back pressure. I like it too because there is a ball/float in there that will not let water come up the exhaust.

Some people have emailed me about this thread and been unable to respond for a few weeks. I do not want to think that I blew you off because I know a couple of you were interested in looking at the boat but not interested in buying. That is totally fine and will answer any question, now I do not think I am even selling it. I jumped on a ship in October and haven't had access, feel free to email me at [email protected] Thanks...

People still have tracked me down via this thread...

Happy to say today that the boat has SOLD and been delivered.

Not sure how to edit the thread title.
