Default Walkaround boats from 20-25' Photos

How many of you out there are running walkaround boats from 20-25 ft? What's your farthest trip?
Here's my 1987 Winner boat. It's discontinued, but I love it. It's 23 ft on the paper, but I measure it 25 ft from the front anchor platform to the transom. It has Optimax 225. Let's show off.

Longer than your spec in the title...about 30 feet pulpit to engine. A Pro-Line 251 which I bought new in 1998. Big block 7.4 to small block 5.7 to bracketed Df300ap. It been a great boat!
Longest day trip logged 165nm chasing tuna.

Im in contract to sell this but I technically own it for another week or 2. it's technicall a 24' 5" boat. I've never measured it though. Selling due to health concerns. I've been diagnosed with 8 footitis.

21' Seaswirl walkaround. Longest trips have been straight out to Stellwagen (about 40 miles offshore) or a 100 mile round trip from Boston to Provincetown.

Here is my 1989 25' Grady-White Sailfish with twin Yamaha 200hp OX-66, and a large blue marlin caught on it a couple of years ago about 65 miles due South of Orange Beach, AL.

Good luck to you! Hope that you'll get a good sale on your boat. Once your feet get better, get back to boating.

I've done many 70-80 miles round trips. I got to admit that the walkaround boat provides everything that I need. I only use it in the So Cal ocean. On the rough days, it's pretty smooth if I keep it under 20 mph. Other than that, I find it comfortable going 28-30 mph on most days. I've been on center console and cuddy cabin boats many times, and they always make me feel limited to what I can do.

I've had my 04' Sea Pro 220 WA over 50 miles offshore many times, I do pick decent weather days though.

I'm not sure. I read that it has fiberglass stringers. I only know that at the transom, there's a thick fiberglass layer like 0.5" each front and back, and then wood in the middle.
