Thatís about 6k MORE than Wye River is asking for a 27 foot Ultra 275 with twin 150s. Including aluminum trailer, anchor, life jackets, full tank of gas and free 20 hour service on the engines. Wow.

I dropped my boat off at Wye River Marine in Kent Island, MD about a month ago and had a look at what was on their lot. They usually stock their 23 foot SHs with 200 hp, rather than 250 hp motors....
