What really sucks about you selling this boat is that you didn't sell it to me.
We should have traded! She was a fine vessel. Been watching your thread and I'm sure when you're done you will be the envy of most guys on here...keep up the great work!

Alright, guys, neither of these are mine, and I apologize for the derail, but I've got to share them. I know it doesn't fit the intent of the thread, so if you want them deleted just let me know and I will.

Here are two of my most favorite boats ever, and I would love to own one like it one day. These were built by Warren O'Neal here on Roanoke Island. In case you don't know, he's the "father" of the Carolina boat style that, along with Omit Tillett, led to all the local "big name" builders. The fact that the boats returned here decades after being built - to me - is just as cool as it gets.

To make it even better, the sportfisher (over 40 years old) was purchased by a friend of a friend who had some kind of connection to the boat when it was built, and who's house is now located near where O'Neal's boat shop was. He named it "FULL CIRCLE." How cool is that? 13 years ago, Warren O'Neal was murdered in his bed at age 90. His boats have (I think) some of the most beautiful, graceful lines around, and I get all nostalgic talking about them, Hope you like the photos.

LOL...I can hear it now.

"So beautiful...wow, you are so beautiful."
"Thank you baby, I love you so very..."
"No, I'm talking about that boat!"

Thanks NE...Daydream has her original 305 mated to a 1:1 Paragon reverse gear. She is not a speed boat, cruise 24 mph, wot 33 mph...but she is smooth and stable at any speed with that low CG, thanks to the placement of the engine.
