    Will you put it in a large bottle on your mantle?

    If you ever look at the used market, let me know. My Yammi mechanic buddy sees everything. You would be amazed at the deals he gets, and he knows the engines are solid, because he maintains them. If a customer skips too many maintenance appointments, he fires them.

    He has an absolutely mint 28 Pursuit hull with brand new , like less than 50 hours, Yamahas on it. I think it needs very basic stuff to get it perfect inside and out. I think he wants $70,000 for it with trailer.

    Pursuit is another make in the same realm as the boats you are talking about. Same parent company as Tiara, same quality builds.

    I love those Steigers. Probably the best looking thing to come out of Miami since J Lo.

    I qualify for a free mooring but has to be no more than 100" from shore and it's shallow as shit there. Still pondering it though.
    I have trouble sleeping at night when the boat is floating. Just seen too many go down due to faulty sumps. Plus I hate bottom paint. That said, free mooring would get me over it quickly. That's what insurance is for. Could you just buy a SUP to get out to it? They make some pretty cool water monitors now that will ping your phone if the boat is taking on water. Might be a wise investment on a mooring.

    Having a nice boat is cool, but not nearly as cool as having a really good friend with a nice boat..

    Yeah, no shit. Most of these boats are just pipe dreams. I pull up at the beach next to $500,000- $800,000 boats that do the same thing as mine. Just a matter of priority and perspective I guess.

    My wife would have us move to Vancouver Is in a heartbeat. Then I tell her I would have to give up my sled, and buy a boat. Nothing fancy, just something around 19ft with ~100hp outboard, 8hp kicker, dual electric downriggers, and of course all the salt fishing gear (that I don’t already own).

    After joking with our guide this summer’s fishing trip, and late night brandies with my dad, she realizes how much more affordable it is to live in the interior and just visit the west coast a couple times a year. And we have much better skiing here.

    As for inboard vs outboard, dad’s old 22ft campion (early 80’s?) with 275hp inboard only has value in the motor for parts, and the trailer. Since the collapse of the gerrard fishery on Kootenay Lk, he only uses his 16ft with 30hp honda(?) on the west arm for kokanee and regular rainbows. So much easier to work on the outboard, and that inboard on the big boat just takes so much of the fishing real-estate away from the back. But designs on oth hull and engine have come so far. Some beautiful eye candy on these pages.

    I'll find out- pretty sure it is a 2870, but not sure if it is a CC or a cuddy/express style.

    Man you guys are killing me. want a boat so bad

    Wife said not till the house gets sided, walkway gets done and those 5 big trees come down. Well guess what, house is sided, walkway is done, and wood is stacked. Currently taking the USCG Boat skills seamanship & navigation classes cuz I don't know jack shit about boating.

    Want a 20-25 foot, cuddy cabin that I can fish off of, but also get away with wife, and entertain friends & family. Drooling over this but it'd require a loan;

    Are outboard motors the new disposable razor blades?

    Completely different boats, obviously. Where would you use it? What for? See what the CG class instructors think about starting out with a boat like either one of those and see what they say. They feel pretty large and/or powerful for a newbie to me, but I donít know much.

    This is the one Iím looking at. $80k then Iíll need a $60k halibut permit. Any of you dentists want to invest in a charter boat?

    How are they completely different? One is 22ft the other is 23. Both have cuddy cabins. Deck layout and hull design is a little different, ones an outboard and ones I/O, but outside of those differences they seem pretty similar to me.

    CG guys so far are basically stressing not being an asshole, on the boat ramp, underway, wherever. Lot of common sense stuff that might not be common sense for a lot of the "I'm the only person in the world" douchebags that are everywhere. I guess I'm not a TOTAL noob, I have gone out on a buddies 29 foot Larson several times, felt pretty comfortable piloting that thing around.

    No pictures of the engine. It probably is fuel injected but still a 23 year old marine engine. Unless it has been repowered i would not bother with it
    Not a boat you want to be putting money into.

    Yeah, make sure you have time to actually use the boat before buying it. I bought a new 24' cc (robalo r242) 3 years ago. Spent a bunch of extra dough getting it outfitted to my exact specifications. Year 1, I probably got out 50+ times. I'd be rocking gore tex ski gear pounding thru waves in April & November. Had a lot of fun. Year 2, I made it out ~30 times from June to September. This year, I made it out.........twice. Who knew that a kid on 2 competitive summer club lax teams would take up so much time?!

    Approx $5k in annual carrying costs (slip, maintenance, winter storage) means it cost me $2500 per outing, ignoring the initial cost of the boat.

    I probably should have taken a clue from the pair of wrapped jetskis that have been sitting behind my garage untouched for the past 4 years. Have I mentioned what happens to free time after having a kid yet?

    I regret neither the child nor the boat purchase, but it would be nice to find some free time!

    I would pass on both of those. Hydra Sports are known for porpoising. They just ride weird, and are pretty wet boats. If you are serious about it, I would look into a local/national boat club. They are a little pricey to get into, but you can use them anywhere they have a base. They will teach you how to operate the boats if needed, and in your area they should have a wide array of different boats for you to try out.

    If you are dead set on ownership, and you really want a nice boat for reasonable money, go on ClassicMako.com or ClassicSeaCraft.com. Both of those makes are extremely solid hulls, and most anything for sale on their classifieds will have been re powered. Great way to learn what you want for cheap, and then step it up later.

    JGB is right. If my kids played soccer or softball, I would never get out. Luckily, they dance, so THEY are always at the studio, but I am only required to be at comps 6 weekends a year. You know why dance is so expensive? Because it's worth it. Lots of free time.

    Here is an example of Cuddy Makos that I would consider, if I was still looking.

    This 284 is an amazing hull. Maybe not for beginners, but that beast will knock the snot out of snotty seas. This example is probably due for a repower, which would drastically change the $28,000 price.

    These are nice, but a little small for me for a cuddy, and the beam is too small, I think.

    Not trying to be combative, but thatís like saying all skis with the similar dimensions will perform similarly. Those boats are very different, theyíre built for different purposes. One is built to fish. The Hydra Sport appears far more seaworthy than the other hull, yet Hydra Sports are not regarded to be as seaworthy as a Mako, Grady White, Parker etc.

    Good advice from Warthog and Jtree. Consider the boat club option to see if you enjoy / have time for the lifestyle, and itís always nice to learn with someone elseís equipment. But I have no idea what happens when you ruin a prop, scratch the hull etc. If youíre anything like me and most boaters I know, you will probably have this happen as you get to know your local waters.

    Maybe we need a boat advice thread

    Thanks guys. I DO have time to go out on a boat, which is a big part of the reason I want one. No kids!! Plus I work a job where I (could) have 6 days out of every 8 off.

    Warthog, I'm gonna look into boat clubs, thats good advice, thanks. That was mentioned by my CG instructors also. Those Makos look more fishing specific. I'm thinking, fishing would be done, but I would aslo just be cruising around with friends and family, so having good seating options is important. (Which it seems like fishing boats don't really do) Thats why I was looking at Larson Hamptons and Sea Ray Weekenders.. Making the wife happy is important, and she doesnt give two shits about fishing. She just wants some nice comfortable lounge-type seats to lie in the sun. So I need to find a balance of boat, where I can fish, but there is good seating for wife and when I take my parents (or inlaws) out cruising the coast.
