Well we finally pulled the trigger a boat. I've been without for the last year and half and its been a tough year and a half. But....we finally pulled the trigger last night on a 2006 Ocean Pro with a 150 Honda main and 8hp kicker. A bit more than we wanted to spend but we got a heck of a good deal on it as the guy just wanted it gone. Pretty much turn key with all the gear you need and very little wear and tear. I attached a couple of grainy photos below that I took late last night.
More importantly I got alot of good information and help from those on this site. Sport Drifter was a big help with sending me various pictures of boats he new about. We were easily able to find the cheapest bank, CU1 as was recommended on here. The bank required an appraisal and I was able to get some good info here on who to use as well. We went with Mike Madar and he was fantastic. Cheap, quick and did a great job. I highly recommend him if anyone needs an appraisal done.
The next thing is to start picking your brains about technique and how to get into some fish. We hope to take her for her/our maiden voyage here in the next couple days...weather permitting. Anyway, a huge thanks to all that helped us out and I hope to see you on the water.
