I'm sure you'll love your new boat, I've never heard anything bad about them. I bought my 28 last year and it's the best riding boat of it's size I've ever been aboard. They really are built like tanks.

Beautiful ride! Congratulations!

I agree with Jim. Wait and see what Garmin comes out with in the spring.

I love the shadow cast by the flair, there's no fakin' that! That makes most other 25's look like kittens compared to a male lion.

Enjoy. Paul

That and the Albe 24 are THE boats to have ib
or i/o in that size range! The shallow water
concerns Greg mentioned are why I went with
my Grady 265, that and I don't like i/os!

Sounds like you and the boys are gonna have
a great summer! Tight Lines!

Thanks, guys. I'm pretty excited about making the decision to get her.

I have to confess that I'm not an I/O fan either. However, with the history and reliability of these boats I'm willing to take that chance!

Congrats!!!!! You will love the CC...it's one of the best built boats out there and hope you take plenty of opportunities to try her out offshore!
