These jackoffs drove all the way to Catalina in a $100K center console to pull other peoples nets?
Id be looking for an aluminum 19'. The gas savings will be worth it when fishing alone. If you are not too worried about MPG than a Parker 18'...

Who services those motors on the west coast?
Whats the link? That looks like my new off shore boat
Grady white 232-it has a 9' beam and is HUGE compared to the competition. You can find them with a 4 stroke for around 25K.
We are buying one...
Ill take them...sent you a PM
Thats a sweet boat. The price seems fair.
That is an older motor and I would plan on replacing if you plan on going too far out of the harbor....
My tank in my 20' skipjack came right out. I had it pressure tested and put right back in. Maybe it had already been replaced at some point....
We were out there, no yellows just bones and cudas for us. We went rockfishing after 12
Pretty sure I saw your boat at the ramp, looks...
Up to 35K
This thing with some outboards would be sweet

Spray paint orange with reflective tape and phone number.
Yes I have gotten a couple phone calls on lots hoops
Can you wakeboard behind this boat?
Will it plane out? Do you have to run at max rpms?
The money move is to buy this and trade that Honda for a 2 stroke 40+
OK so what is the cruising speed? Someone is going to want to know

Does that thing get good mileage?
Maybe its good the bait died!
Great show! Your crew seems the most functional.
My GF even likes watching it, hopefully you get a season 2

Holy shit...and my boats broken:mad:
Yes no spark. I took off the throttle body cover and tried starting fluid, no dice. Also pulled the plugs and smelled gas.

Badass video thanks for sharing
in your opinion. i much prefer mitches
Go to Catalina with a tank of squid or dines and catch 50+ bass in a day. Then you will change your mind.
This is what I do when I question...
Mitches has been making PLSF look like shit. Ive been going since I was a kid and we much prefer Mitches nowdays
This thing is BADASS!
ohhh thats rough.
I bet that Dorado tasted delicious
Na. Thats what they go for on the east coast. Its not a pilothouse and has an inboard motor.

Also my buddies went...
Only a matter of time....
We have a battery switch dual battery setup and never had a problem.
You can store your boat in Long Beach right next to the ramp for $100 a month. Easier that having it at your house. That's where mine is

Still for sale? I miss this boat.
If anybody has an extra one Ill pay for it.
Go find a 20' center console with a 4 stroke for around 15K. Will be the easiest low cost to maintain. Worst case you can sell it if you hate it.
West Marine no longer has them. Been looking for one too.

Yea I spun a prop on a volvo penta and had to jump in the water to replace. We always keep a spare prop and wrench in the boat
Nice! The bass has been full speed.
I took my GF to Catalina Saturday on her first fishing trip and we caught 40+ bass on sardines or dead squid...
What motor is it?

Thanks for the report dude. Glad you got out.
I took my GF to the frontside on Saturday. 40+ bass and about 10 cudas all on dead squid/sardines...
