Finally I see a picture of your new boat.Jay_In_Parker said:I need to sell it to make room for my new boat:
Thats actually my boat. It was a little inside humour between Jay and I. Jay has his old boat parked in my back yard - till it sells. I thought I was being pretty clever saying I had a new boat - (his old boat), but Jay had the better hand. Jay took the photo last year after fishing at Granby. My back yard looks like a boat yard now. By the way, Jay has pictures of his new boat on his "My new boat" thread.
About the boat, I bought it from Ed's Marine in Richmond, VA. I found they had the best prices in the country when I was shopping. Its a 2005 Sea Pro, 206 W/A. Shipping costs will be about what Colorado tax would be. My cousin went out for me and towed it back. It has a 150 hp Yamaha and a 15 hp kicker. Sea Pro had a good reputation, they were bought out by Brunswick Marine in January 2005. I was also considering Sea Hunt, Key West, Pro line, and Sea Chaser. I like the walkaround because the kids can get out of the weather, its good for open water (we took it to Isle Royale in lake superior last summer) and a portapottie is a requirement. You will get a more space in a 25-30 foot boat. I tow mine all over so I wanted something smaller - and more fuel efficent. I have a fuel flow meter and get about 3 mpg with a full load of people and camping gear, running at 30 mph. By myself at 26 mph I get 4.0-4.2 mpg. It weighs about 4000 lbs with 75 gallons of fuel, plus the trailer is about another 1000. Wide open is 37mph here in Colorado, 40 on Lake Superior with the same 15" SS prop.
