I'm selling the boat because we just don't use it much anymore. I still fish several times a week, but time and money (lack of it) prevent much offshore fishing in the Privateer. I tend to spend the vast majority of my fishing time in the skiff nowadays. I hate to sell it because it is a great boat, but unless I find a few wealthy fishing partners, I don't have much of a choice.
Those Privateer's are really, really solid boats. I toured the factory last year and couldn't believe just how over built they are. The stringers are absolutely huge! I've also toured quite a few other boat factories including Albemarle, Carolina Classic and Regulator and I have to say I haven't seen any boat built as solidly as the Privateer (Caveat: I haven't toured the factories at Wanchese).
That Prowler is one heck of a boat and I hope you get her sold. Man I wish I had the green stuff to make her mine!
