Very nice boat and it appears you took good care of her. A couple of questions, inquiring for my father who is in the market for this type of boat, what does the boat weigh loaded? Do you have a trailer?

Thanks in advance.

I have never had the boat officially weighed. Dry weight is 5200#, with approx. 1200# for engines, oil tanks, rigging. Fuel weight is approx. 1400# if full (210 gallon tank). This comes up to about 7800 #. I am estimating these numbers as I do not have papers in hand at the moment.
There is a trailer. Nextrail aluminum, 10,000 lb. tandem axel. Stainless steel disk brakes (surge), torsion axel. Thanks for the inquiry. I intend to post more pics later. Questions welcome.

Did you keep the boat in the water every season, all season? Thanks for any information.

Boat was in the water usually from April to November, then put on trailer for the winter and spring cleaning. It has been in covered storage during the winter for the last two years. Bottom has been painted with ablative bottom paint since new (I am the original owner). No blistering, bubbles, etc.

Yes. Nextrail 10,000 lb. aluminum trailer, tandem axel. Stainless disk brakes. Torsion axels (I am not sure if the spelling is correct, but it is the type without springs to rust). The trailer has been good-not any trouble.

Deadrise is 21 degrees. Length over all is 28' 2", beam is 9' 4". 48 square feet of cockpit = lot of fishing room. Two large in deck fish boxes with pump out Fuel capacity is 210 gallons. Sweet spot at cruise is 3800-4000 rpm, 30-32 mph. Fuel usage depends on conditions and load. My average mpg is around 1.5 mpg for the normal fillup. This includes cruising, slow trolling, and running. I have witnessed 1.8 at the top end of the range running the ICW with light load. Put four 200 pounders with ice, water, beer, fishing gear, etc. on board then milage goes down of course. Top end is around 42-43 at 5500 rpm. With newly painted bottom and curtains off (and tail wind) it may peak out a little higher. This is pretty much a guess-timate as I rarely if ever run like that. Layout is good for fishing and great for cruising.

Mostly personal reasons, no boat issues. Lack of time, pending relocation, and the clincher-going to lose boat slip that I have enjoyed for 6 years. Retirement coming in a couple of years. I'll be back.
