Torn between 2 girls
Me and my partner have 2(two) boats!
1. trophy 2003 walkaround 135hp mercury eng 3 miles to the gallon good on gas but with a payment og 340.00/mo including insurance..
2. skipjack 24' Open volvo penta 305 chevy with 280 out drive. The engine runs very good, its a bigger boat and i can fix almost anything that comes up and No payment!!
We need to sale one of the boats we don,t need two boats, which is the better way to go I want to keep the skipjack, and my partner want to keep the trophy. They both have good and bad points,i just want to hear some unbias opinions. Thanks torn between two girls...Dave

You keep the Skippy, and give him the trophy w/ the payments. No more partnership, and you both have what you want!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm a mushroom cloud makin mother fucker................
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Skippys since I own one. I don't believe there's really a comparison between the two - Skippy is a much more solid coastal/offshore boat. More deck space, easy to work on, and no payments. No brainer!!!EL JEFE

Thanks guys for your input!!
I agree with all of you!!! I want to do a lot of improvements to the boat, can't do it with the partnership because on one person will do ALL OF THE WORK..
Thanks again Guys see you on the water!!......Dave

One more thing to consider
If you partner bought the Trophy new, he might be upside down equity-wise. Selling it would result in his having to come up with the cash difference, unless he made a large down payment. That might be factoring into his decision to keep his boat and sell yours. Obviously, this has nothing to do with which boat is a better fishing platform.
The Trophy will continue to depreciate, while the skippy will hold its value as long as its maintained. Those boats are like the Energizer Bunny; they just seem to keep going and going....
Food for thought.My 26 Proline is for sale! Check it out under Member boats for sale

Thanks Kevin for your reply!
You made a very good point about the trophy! and you are right on the equity. My partner only put a small down payment on the boat, and for sure he will suffer a nasty lost if he sell now.... Thanks Dave

Thanks for the reply. I'm looking for at least 22-23'. My present boat is 20'. I'm looking to get a larger boat. Jack

Good luck on your boat search Jack!
the trophy is 20' boat too small for me also !! That's why i like the 24' skipjack.
There are a lot of boats out there, i hope you find the one you want...Good luck.. Dave
