Congrats. I called the previous owner to send a surveyor to look at this boat. He said a guy from Orlando had flown in to look at it and he was waiting to hear from you. He called me the next day and said it sold. Congrats. For what it is worth, I have seen the stick type swim ladder brackets mounted to the downward angled corner of the platform. Boat has a 300xs and I am still bummed out that I was a few days late on this boat.

Shoot me a PM if you want to talk about setup. I have tried every prop (thanks PropGods), motor position, moved weight around, etc.

Cmon Mike... pics man, more pics. Over a month looking at boats to find that gem, and we get two crappy pics?

Can't wait to go for a ride. You better bring her to the keys this year.
