Looks like a fair deal. What sort of fuel consumption have you seen? How is this hull for drift fishing?

I mounted my dive racks in the exact same location.

I typically see about 1.3 - 1.5 mpg at cruise depending on load. Boat drifts great with or without sea anchor. 9.8 ft beam definitely helps! I do a fair amount of kite fishing on the edge so understand your concern. Let me know if you have any other questions or want to come take a look at the boat.

Attached is the spec sheet from hydra-sports for this particular model and engines which shows closer to 1.9 mpg is possible (I haven't seen it). Everything on it is still accurate except I added 6 additional gunwale mounted rod holders (so 10 total).

Beautiful boat and, in my opinion, the best/most successful model HS ever produced. It's still a desired hull with a great reputation.

My advice? Take the "obo" out of your price and lower it to what you would be willing to take, bottom dollar, if you want it sold. Also, bottom paint and no trailer always seem to be a hard sell in Florida as opposed to the northern states...

Good luck, someone's going to get a lot of boat for the money!

I have the same engines/same boat only twin 200's. If the motors lasted 12 years then they have lived up to their reputation. I still get my boat up to 54-55 mph. Mine is up for sale as well on this website. Good luck!

Thanks all! Appreciate the responses. Good luck Lawman on your sale. My engines have and still run extremely well and I've only had a few minor issues with them which can be expected.

We have twin 2000 200HP Fichts and they run fantastic. If they're still running, you've got great motors.

I am still considering this model. Are you the original owner? If I were to repower, what is the minimum horsepower that you would recommend?

Johnnny B, I'm the 2nd owner. I bought the boat in 2003. The boat runs great with 225's on it now. I would stick with 225s or 250s unless you have the need for speed. I have seen this same boat rigged with 200s but I wouldn't drop below 225s. Let me know if you have any other questions.
