24'-10"Carolina Skiff w/235 merc. Has floatation for your safety off-shore and drafts pretty good, for a beast. To show how much weight they can handle, Mike Marshall that owned Southside Outboards had one and he had a guy from Alumitech build a small house on it with a roof you could walk on. Was way kewl because he had a walk at roof level that went over the bow and you could bow fish from it. He ran it(maybe runs it still) in North ML with no problem. Just think, if you didn't have the house on it you could carry a couple pallets of cement blocks in a foot of water. Why do you think a lot of commercial guys run them? The left over pallets make great firewood. cool.gif

It souds like you are looking for a 19-21' bay boat to do everything you want and still fit in your price range. Anything you look at over 4 yrs old check the fuel tank for leaks/corrosion. Most came with aluminum tanks and if they had saltwater in the hull, the tanks get corroded and develop pin holes and will need to be replaced. The 20 and 22 Aquasports of 70-early 80's vintage are great boats for shallow draft and nice rides in 3-4 chop but get rough above this due to shallow deadrise. You might look at a late 70's early 80's Mako w/ tan gel and brown trim around windowshield they were great boats off shore and in bay. Again check fuel tanks for leaks. Any used boat you think about buyng, definately water test and take to a good shop for checkout b4 purcase. I hate to say it, but the SeaPro probably would fit your requirements better than any other of the newer models due to cost and fuctionality(big word). The Pathfinders are over priced and mechanically a nitemare although they do have Yamahas on them.


I agree with the Mako - except... I hate the bow section on the 19's. The 21 (I believe 213) shares the same design as the 23 - which is a great bote. My experience though with the vintage Mako's (with the white and tan) shows a few problem areas - water in the foam core will weigh the boats down to the point where the self bailing becomes an issue when at rest, the attachments of the hull and deck coming loose, and prone to spider cracks in the rear of the boat - specifically in the back corners.

Also - check out the Century line. The 1800 has a TON of room for a boat that size - but I'll say this from personal experience - the ride can get a bit hairy at times... that boat has some weird tendencies to suddenly list to one side while under power.

What's really wierd, and the god's honest truth, is that I dreamt last night that I saw the HannaSea on a trailer. In my dream I turned around and followed it to get a picture of it.

Dejas vu indeed.
