Ah, yes, the price. I knew there was something else. She is being offered for $109k, and is an excellent value at that price.

JK,

Yes, not doing enough offshore fishing anymore to justify the BF, and I still have the Grady Sailfish at the dock at home. Now the wife wants a pontoon boat to take the grandkids out in the bays! Getting to be too much work with what will be 3 boats to maintain, and not enough time to enjoy them.

She cruises 24 knots at 2400 rpm. The other day, on the pins at 2650, the gps read 27.3 knots and the boat was not trimmed. Speed will increase a little with tabs set just right. Don't have floscans on the BF, but fuel burn averages between 1 and 1.5 mpg.

I would be tempted if you were closer to Florida and would buy as a second vacation home.

Thank you everyone for the interest, and especially John, for getting these pics posted here. I'm not fluent in computer-speak, and couldn't get these pics on the board. I'll have a few more (engines, etc) tomorrow, so I shall try again. (But might need John (weakfish) to 'splain me how'
