Thrilled to Announce a New Family Addition!!!
I am happy to announce the imminent arrival of my new baby!
The offer is made and accepted, and I'm lining up the surveyor and mechanic as we speak. The boat's in awesome shape, so I'm cautiously optimistic that all will be found to be A-OK.
She's a 1998 25' Carolina Classic, with a single Volvo 7.4GI attached to a Duo Prop via a jackshaft. Electronics include a Raymarine C120 GPS/Chartplotter/24mi Radar, Icom VHF, TR-1 Gladiator Autopilot, Navman 3100 fuel flow managment system, 32 gallon integrated transom livewell, and an ACR 406 MHZ EPIRB.
It's loaded with additional gear, and looks like its only a one or two year old boat. The current owner has taken unreal care of this battlewagon. It was a freshwater boat up until 2005 at about 450 hours, and has been in the salt since then (now at 736 hours). It hasn't been moored in the salt, however, for more than a long weekend at a time.
Here's a few pic's....I'll post more when I get it home.

That thing looks sweet. Looks like someone is going tuna fishing this year in his own boat!

Nice boat and I would love to hear how she rides with the engine tucked up in there so nicely. Good deal.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm stoked to say the least!
Once I get it home and can sit down in it and make out a detailed list of to-do's I'll definitely be getting back with you all and getting some of that top-notch bruthahood advice!

Probably one of the best riding 25ers ever built. Congrats on your new sled.
