re: First boat purchase questions... - Chris4x4gill2
I would cancel the test drive on that Sea Ray. The owner is either clueless or isn't being totally honest. Either is bad for you as a buyer. Things aren't adding up. On top of that stored outside with no cover I'm going to say that boathe would be a money pit and a bucket of problems. I am ...

re: First boat purchase questions... - Chris4x4gill2
Did they use the Volvo setup in 97? or is it another Mercruiser? Volvo is an excellent combo. I rode in probably 20 different types of boat before I even started to look seriously to purchase. Took that many to narow it down to what size and style of hull fit us the best and then I started to fig...

re: First boat purchase questions... - Chris4x4gill2
my last several boats have been inboards - I'm starting to get out of the loop on the Stern drives. The above are from my experience. If I was going to buy one for myself, Cobalt would be at the top of my list. ...

re: First boat purchase questions... - Chris4x4gill2
For what I think you are after - I'd look for a Larson, Four Winns, Crownline, a Mariah if they made something in a 19ft? There are others, but I think Larson is usually the best built for the money in that size....

re: First boat purchase questions... - Chris4x4gill2
I Added this after you replied - That should be a Alpha outdrive - should be fine for that size boat, but just FYI Bravo's are more durable and more desirable. Go test drive that boat but dont buy it. At least not until you look at and test drive at least 3 - 4 more. Sea Rays are "good" boat...

re: First boat purchase questions... - Chris4x4gill2
Why was the engine replaced? when? did they repalce all of the bellows at the same time? - the gaskets between the hull and the outdrive- check them for cracks and dry rot. It has sat outside without a cover so they can degrade quickly. check the tires for dry rot, walk all over the floor, chec...

re: First boat purchase questions... - Chris4x4gill2
My advice would be to focus on quality brands even if you have to go older to stay in your price range. While they may seem dated in the interior or colors or whatever, they will be built better and structurally in better shape than a newer price point boat. If you look hard enough and dont get impa...

[quote]I would not buy that boat at any price. Problem will only get worse with more use.[/quote]\ This a million times over. 1. nothing in a boat that connects the hull to the floor is "non structural" 2. an 07 Bayliner 195 was a piece of crap in 07. Its a huge piece of crap now. T...

re: Siesta Key, FL Charter recommendations - Chris4x4gill2
I used Geoff Page a few years ago. Fished mainly for Snook, water was pretty rough in the gulf, but we also managed to get out near the end of the trip to try for Tarpon. We saw and cast at a few singles but no hook ups. [link=(http://chevyfloridainsiderfishingreport.com/captain-geoffrey-page)]L...

re: Boat in the water / bilge pump killing battery - Chris4x4gill2
How long is it going between charges? Most bilge pumps should draw a low amount of juice. Are you sure you battery isnt going bad? What about the switch for the bilge pump? is it cutting on/off properly or running too much? What about a mooring cover to shed water?...
