A doctor used to own it who kept it up on Center Hill Lake near Nashville, TN. He sold it to the guy I bought it from who only had it for a few months and was intimidated by the size of towing, launching, and retrieving. I will have to get back to you on the actual hours on the meter, but I think it has about 580 hours on it or there abouts. I did not use it much last year........one hours worth on the engine.

Hey John
That is a great fishing boat. You can go where we can't. Most boats in the Keys are the center console running outboards. I see a lot of the Lund brand.

BOAT: A hole in the water into which one pours their money!

I was into boats one time. and enjoyed it very much, especially with the Gulf of Mexico being a 2 hour ride away, and it having such great fishing. Had a nice offshore boat, 32' Stamas fully loaded.

Best part was though when I sold it for almost what I paid for it 8 years later.........

My friend just bought a nice boat a week or so ago. Its a Grady White Sailfish 282 w/ twin Yamaha 225hp 4 strokes, and fully loaded with all the electronics and niceties. He and his wife opted for nice toys instead of kids............and I can't say that I blame them one bit......hindsight is 20/20. Offshore fishing in the GUlf here is terrific, and its about like when Salmon run up in the cold country when the mackerel and yellow fins run here. Always good fishing on the bottom for snapper and grouper and other types, and usually you can always catch some fish no matter what the time of year or weather is like.

I take it aluminum boats seem to be pretty poplar in the Northeast, north west and around the great lakes and Canada. Why in particular is aluminum boats so popular? I see and hear a lot about the Lund brand of boats being especially popular.

A boat is like a good dog, she'll sure be missed now that she is gone. My condolenses on your loss, now buy more tractors.

Just for fun, here's my little girl.
