Prop choice I would suggest a Mercury Enertia Eco in 17” pitch. Big diameter provides exceptional midrange cruising.

Transducer options, look at the B150M from Airmar. It’s a medium frequency...

I have 18 year old Optimax engines on my personal boat approaching 1400 hours, maintenance is everything. Compression check, gear oil check, and computer diagnostics will tell the tale.

With original engines, equipment, electronics, etc. I would say $40-50k. A lot of variables there based on condition, but that’s a ball park.

More than likely putty that is cracking at the hull to deck joint. Most manufacturers just cover this with trim and it’ll be real ugly underneath. Contender finished it off, but probably only has a...

22 degree deadrise, twin stepped hull with a delta pad. It’s a 9’2” beam and sits well at rest, the beam and flat keel pad help. Very comfortable ride and good performance.

Plug and play, but you will need about 4’ of slack in your harnesses as the connection points are on the back of the motor and clean power connections to the batteries (additional harness).

I’ll vouch for Caribbean Craft, excellent build quality and a solid boat. The redesigned liner with storage and fish boxes is a great addition and makes it a real fishing boat.

Lots of slip, that prop is not biting at all. You’re probably jacking it too high to get the RPMs. Should be looking for a 19” pitch.
