    Default Seasport

    Seawolf, these boats have a great reputation, I think you will love it. The 120 gal fuel tank will give you good range, will be relatively economical to run and that size should tow well.

    Thumbs up Seasport new or used?

    You bought a good solid boat with good resale value IMHO. Be sure you take care with the maintanence on the outdrive, especially the u-joint bellows. If the rubber bellows canl crack with age. If saltwater gets the drive unit, you are looking at major repair. Also, if it's a duoprop, remove BOTH props twice a season and grease the shaft with triple-guard grease. The inner prop has a tendency to bond to the shaft. It's a real ugly repair. Feel free to email me if you want more tips, I have a 24 Explorer.
