Nice boat! Have several questions...

Any upgrades with lighting?

How old are electronics?. Size and models of each?

Last time engines were maintenanced?

Age of batteries... how many? Is there a seperate house battery?

Are all pumps original?

Condition of cushions and combing pads?

Maintenance on trailer... tires, brakes, springs...etc.

Thanks

Hi Boomer816,
Any upgrades with lighting? The lights are all stock but I am going to LED spreaders on it. Just haven't gotten around to it.

How old are electronics?. Size and models of each? Don't know the exact year of the GPS/ Chart plotter but its a Garmin 3010C. Screen is 10.4" inch. Here's a link from Garmin on the device: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/249
Last time engines were maintenanced? Approximately 20 hours ago.

Age of batteries... how many? Is there a seperate house battery? 3 batteries, not sure of the year they were last replace. I will need to go look. Not sure what a house battery is?

Are all pumps original? - Yes and function perfectly.

Condition of cushions and combing pads? - Near Mint Condition

Maintenance on trailer... tires, brakes, springs...etc - I bought the trailer for this used and only use it for detailing the boat and transporting it once or twice a year in town for maintenance. It needs tires and the springs have surface rust on them but still work. I recently spent about $1500.00 on new bunks, new aluminum brackets and hardware for the bunks, new winch and winch pulpit. Bearings are routinely greased and packed, etc. It has electric brakes but I don't use them. My truck isn't outfit for them but again, I don't really tow it far so I haven't had any issues. If you were going to regularly tow the boat I would look at getting new tires and possibly newer springs. Disc brake kit would be a good idea too. For me it's fine. The boat normally sits on a lift.

I'll get back to you on the age of the batteries. I'll have to go look at them, they're not that old.

Thanks for your responses.

Aside from the Garmin, I also noticed the VHF, are there any other electronics aside from the stereo?
House battery is a dedicated battery for electronics and accessories, such as lights, windless,etc. that are seperate from the main batteries used to start the engines.
I agree with your thoughts regarding the trailer... tires and springs would need to be addressed for me. (I'm up in NJ)

Boomer816,
Thanks for the knowledge. I never knew that.

I checked the batteries. It has 2, not 3 -Sorry ran off memory before which isn't so good these days :-). They're dated 12/13. It has a clarion stereo, standard horizon VHF radio and the Garmin.

More questions...

Are the fuel tanks original?

Name/model of battery charger? Age?

What the condition of the enclosure... glass clear, canvas material weathered?

Thanks

Fuel tanks are original. Just an FYI - they're original in my 96' as well, which are like new surprisingly. For the battery charger, I'll have to check in my garage. Enclosure is glass and in very good condition. No pitting on the t-top, it's in great shape. There's no eisenglass. Sunbrella engine covers are in like new condition.

Thank you for all that information, I appreciate all your feedback. I'm doing a lot of research and trying to make a decision between a Grady and Pursuit. Your boat is what I'm looking for, however, I'm getting feedback from friends telling me to stay with a walk around cabin type boat because of our location. It stays pretty cold here in the early spring and late fall/early winter. I usually have my boat in from mid March to mid December and I do see a lot of CC's freezing their butts off. I still have more research to do before I make my final decision. Thanks again. As mentioned... I'm definitely keeping it on my list.

Bump for a nice Pursuit. Love the yellow.

I may be a little biased but these are well made and well thought out boats. I especially like the lockable rod storage. The ability to keep several rods you use often on the boat is a big plus. Luggung everything back and forth gets old fast.

Good luck with the sale.

Boomer816, an enclosure may be sufficient to keep you warm. I will tell you that it's incredible how well the windshield on these boats shields you. However, that's coming from a Florida boy that where long pants and long sleeves anytime the temperature drops below 79 degrees :-). Happy to answer any more questions for you on the forum or via phone.
