Well my wife and I ended our search over the Christmas break--as some may recall from previous post, we had been looking at 22' boats over the past year and a half and had narrowed between a Seasport and Hewes Searunner. The Seasport won out, although I still like both boats and enjoy my buddies searunner quite a bit.
We ended up with a 2006 SeaSport Sportsman that we got from a fella over in Seward with essentially everything we need. It came in immaculate shape, had a survey done and local machanics check it out since it was winter, it has 5.0 VP GXi, duoprop outdrive, stainless props, Yami kicker with electric trim, etc, Scotty downriggers, Avon raft, pot puller, four shrimp pots, downrigger and halibut weights, gaffs, rods/reels, cooler, cart, Garmin plotter, eagle sounder, some service/maintence supplies--whole ball of wax.
I wouldn't mind upgrading the electronics and can see a stove sometime down the road, but otherwise, its fairly set up. We are considering putting into Homer harbor for the season and getting a private slip next year, so barrier coat and bottom paint will be in order if we head that way. If so, may upgade electronics at the same time if I decide to also upgrade the transducer (considering a bronze through-hull, but nervous).
Other than that, I'm ready for spring darn it.
Here are a couple pictures of the boat--taken by previous owner.
