What is the beam on this boat and how much does she weigh on the trailer?
Also, is that a 20" or 25" motor?

Thank you for the quick reply. Do you have a picture of the trailer? Is it aluminum or galvanized?

It's galvanized. Long self adjusting roller, 6500lb no brakes. It's good for short hauls an storage, but I borrow a buddies when I tow the boat to hatteras.

Your Girlfriend is cute but NO way would I sell my boat to get married, fishing is always an adventure , you never know whats going to happen. As far as marriage, the best part is the honeymoon then after that it goes down hill J/K congrats. Wish I would seen this rig, when I was in the market. GL

I'll always have a boat. Going to sit on the sidelines for a bit, make her happy and wait for a deal on something canyon capable. I will certainly miss the kencraft thou.

The boat is dryer than most, but any boat can be wet in certain conditions. I run the boat till Christmas here and the side curtains are great for just keeping the wind off of you and keeping you warm.

It's got a sharp entry and a good flared bow, when there's a chop you just trim the motor down and let the flare throw water. It burns a few more GPH when you do that and typically it's not necessary. I run it trimmed up a bit to where the deadrise gets a little softer, it offers better economy and speed like that. It's a very efficient hull.

I bought the boat because it's the least compromise between ride quality and stability. I've run a 34' Yellowfin, a Bertram and been on many other high quality boats. If you fish from the back bay out to about 50 miles, this is a great rig for you.

Could you get a pic of the bow deck? Does it have forward seating?

It could have forward seating if you added some cushions and a coaming pad. There's about a 12" step up around the bow.

Looking for offers but don't need to sell. Happy Thanksgiving all!

Default 250 challenger

I have a 1989 model with a single 250 xs optimax, great riding, do every thing 25 footer.
Your a better seller than i could ever be, the lame AZZ questions about forward seating (when its shown in a few pics), wet/dry ride (every hull is different in certain conditions), 20" or 25" transom (what about that hull says its got a 20" motor on it). Sorry to vent, it's just time wasting questions that serious buyers could answer themselves with a little research.
Your boat looks very clean and is a solid built, spacious hull!!!
