    Seems like a clean 31 eastern. Couldnt let it go for the price. What's everyone's take on the 315hp cummins.

    Great buy. you are going to love it. The 315 is fine for that boat. I have a 380 in mine and never get to use the full potential. I find after 20 MPH it gets a bit of bow steer so never seeing more then 9 GPH. That puts me at about 50% output. It will take on head seas like no other and in a following Sea you just have to let it do it’s thing. Don’t fight it and it a fun ride home.

    Thanks, lol ya there wasn't much room for negotiations on this one. Not sure what I'll be using this for just yet. Most likely just fishing with the family

    Does the spray rail go all the way to the transom or is that a optical illusion

    Nice boat. I would go with coossa on that one. Try to keep some weight in the stern on that hull.

    Thanks tailhook, the spray rail stops at about the end of the house. It is hard to tell from that pic

    Nice boat. I agree either coosa or Penske for cockpit replace material. Good luck.

    Coosa or equivalent is the simple wood replacement.

    Also if you are going for straight wood replacement, they make various weights and reinforcement levels in Coosa. The heaviest strongest one is 26 lb bluewater- 30% lighter than plywood still and is marketed as an equivalent substitute..

    They also make lighter coosa that lacks the density and reinforcement. Could work fine too but requires more engineering/thinking if you rip out a plywood deck and replace it with a weaker material.

    The link in the first post is somehow connected to Viglink, and takes me to Amazon. Is this a problem on the forum website, or in my computer?
    Anyone know how to get rid of this? I am doing a scan, but not finding a problem.
