A recent health issue for the wife has caused she and I to rethink a few things. We are seriously considering downsizing our home and boat also. Not 100% sure.... but every conversation is headed more in that direction. We just need to move on..

    Anyway...the boat....I had thought about selling it last year, its a little bit much boat for us, but decided to keep it.. now it's best if it goes.

    26 open with hard top.
    She needs a good cleaning right now.
    350 Crusader MPI
    950ish hours, mostly trolling by previous owner.
    10000 lb aluminum trailer. Brakes were fine but a caliper hung up, pulled calipers and I would tow about a mile to local ramp..

    During the past 6 months or so:

    All new exhaust hoses from manifolds to transom.
    New risers..
    Removed FWC manifolds and had mating surfaces refaced at machine shop.
    New fuel filter.
    New high pressure pump filter.
    New fwc circ pump.
    New raw impeller.
    New ignition coil.
    New iridium plugs
    New shaft coupling
    New raw water shut off valve.
    Garbord drain forward.
    New shaft packing
    New oil pressure sender.
    New temperature sender.
    New engine mounts.
    New steering.
    Shaft checked for trueness
    New rudder packing.
    New bronze shoe.
    New belt.
    New trans oil cooler.
    New thermostat.
    New valve cover gaskets.
    New cutlass bearing.
    Wiring replaced
    Probably something I missed.

    Old lowrance electronics and N2K goes with it but not installed.
    LOTS of rod holders.



    Needs good scrubbing.
    Needs caliper.
    Trim tabs don't work.
    Waiting on short section of 4" hose to come in. It goes from risers to 45 degree elbow on exhaust.

    Asking $13,500

    Constructive feedback always welcome.

        Understand that, and can certainly sympathize. The unexpected can certainly cause re-evaluation of what is important.

        your boat has a nice set up. Dont be afraid to advertise it on inland fresh water fishery sites. Could be a good boat for the great lakes.

            Thanks Gary, at this point she is going to be getting blood work every 90 days. Hopefully things remain stable. But like I mentioned earlier, certain things help us regain our focus.
