Yea. Brandon Having looked at all of them. I decided I'd finance the 23 footer. They will build it for me in 7 weeks. With a cummins deisel its 61,000. With twin Merc O/B its 50. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed. What the hell, I m not gonna live forever. Still have to decide on the block island, the chesapeake or the Miami. and custom stuff. The Chesapeake is nice and I think I like the hard top.

I think your makin a good choice, looks like a nice roomy boat. I wish that I could have purchased a bigger boat. But once you get over 18' the price just skyrockets! I like the looks of Hellsbay boats. Maybe someday.

That is a nice baot jim. Very nice.

PARTY AT JIM'S HOUSE THE WEEKEND HE GETS THE BOAT!!!

BYOT (bring your own tackle)

I'll bring an old oil barrel, cut it in half, fill it with charcoal briquettes, put a little grate on tope, and eat some fresh striper, right on the beach.

That would actually be really fun.

Don't forget the booze.

Nice boat, looks like a Parker or Eastern. What I like about it is you can keep your electronics out of the weather. Also nice big fishing area in the back,wide open. Lots of luck jimmy My next one is going to be that style.

Im havin second thoughts now on the steigercraft. A couple of my buddies who fish offshore and in the bay say that the steigercraft doesnt cut the mustard with them. They say it doesnt handle a chop like it should. Unless I can get a deep V they told me to forget it. They say its ok for the bay but not for rough water. I may keep lookin a bit more now.

Deep vees are nice offshore . I had a two 23' formulars The waves come along your side. the other boats, they (the waves) will be coming over the bow. But for fishing you want a boat that does'nt draw a lot of water. There are boats that don't draw a lot of water and a still seaweathy. Those Maritime skiffs only draw about 9 inches and are very stable in the water. I love my deep-vee when I had it but now I lean towards the Parker 23' or the 27' . The other thing is I would want a outboard. with power trim. You could go right up an a sand bar,if you had to. I had it with in-out drives.

Jim...I would try to avoid the I/O (inboard/outboard)...I've heard some pretty negative things about them...I think outboards are the way to go...

~Just my two cents~

My buddy Bob has a parker and isnt that happy with it. He told me to get a preowned grady white for the same money.

How about a Mako 23ft. there nice. The thing I like about them is there self baling. The water come in and the water goes out .

My boat is self baling, it has an open transom. I hate it, especially when the water is cold. Next boat won't have that option.
