Any thoughts on a SS 34? I think the boat in question is an older hull, but is in excellent shape.
Thanks,

I have spent a lot of time on the one that is for sale this week in the classified this week, it is the best down sea boat I have been on...cruises really nice at 19-20 knots

Very cool. Thanks for the info.
I am told they are pretty rare and that many who have them choose to hold onto them rather then sell them off. I have never been on one, but the guy I spoke with earlier today has a lot of experience with SS hulls in general and speaks very highly of this 34.

There ars 4 SS 34's in our harbor,one is rigged for scalloping right now,it has a 430 cummins.Of the others one has a 375 deere and the other two have 220 deeres.Not the biggest 34 footers but they seem to be plenty capable.One of the ones with the 220 is the plug by the way.

I am in Maine.The plug was documented in1989.The others are a 93,96 and 2001.I saw another going east up the channel today,from Harpswell.I dont know if someone from down east bought her or they were headed east to work on her.

I think it is 34' x 12'. I spent the night in nw 25 down off of Chatham a few years back, we laid side two in 10's all night...caught our fish and steamed in 50 miles in 8's....very capable boat.
