Your second picture is an excellent indication how that hull is similar to the 23 Bluewater under the carport (I think that is a Bluewater).

Nice hull. When I was about 16 I saw one of those slam into a concrete seawall that had a 2x8 on the edge of it, so it actually hit the board.
It climbed up until the outdrive grounded and stalled it. Didn't even crack the gel coat, I know that's hard to believe.

this refurbish of a hull is priceless even more when u have a better ride then a contnder and the abilty to spank boats with triples and quads in top speed this is the true meaning of a custom boat

my wife would divorce me just daydreaming about the money i would put in this boat.That is one i would take on in a second,good luck with the sale and here is a shameless bump for a sweet old ride. It is amazing how many peeps out their do not know how good this 23 rides.It would make a 25 or 26 foot boat that is made by todays standards look like a 10 foot dingy.

CP Marine I got one and have put over 1500 hours on it in the ocean since 2000. You cant run 50 in 6 to 8' sea. I guess you could but it would be foolish and its going to tare up a lot of stuff. Dont get me wrong you can run hard in 3 to 4 but not 6 to 8. I have benn is seas up to 12' every 6 to 8 seconds b4. slugged it out and got home safe but dont want to ever go thru that again. Great hulls for sure.
