So I purchased a boat that had bottom paint. I now trailer the boat so the bottom paint is not necessary. I really don’t care about how it looks (starting to come off along the sides) but it’s also starting to smudge black when touched. This sucks when washing the boat, it causes black marks...

Yep but I spoke with the guy that sold me the boat and he's super cool were going to split the cost. What he was telling me is it's the vapor sensor and hose. Which on that year motor this was a problem.
I just got off the phone with Hip marine. It looks like the bladders inside the fuel pump we're broke. So there replacing the fuel pump and fuel line. There confident that was the problem. So there doing the work. Wish me luck haha
There wasn't much gas left in the tank and we filled it up that morning. The boat was never run out side of Hip. So they have it now. I was hoping maybe one of the new spark plugs was bad or something they looked over.

could you put a ice chest seat in front of the console like many of the other 17 and 18? I love your boat just trying to figure out if I could go out with my wife and two kids, or do you think the boat would not be able to accomidate seating for 4.
What are the pros and cons of Aluminum vs Fiberglass boats. I want to fish the local shoreline and kelps the flats and maybe head to the island if weather is good. any info would help me narrow my boat search down.
Where are all these 17-18 ft boats your talking about. I've been looking on BD, craigslist, and boat trader. Any other places to look. I've even started to look at boats on the east coast so much more inventory and boats cost less.
Today I fished the incoming tide in HB Harbor for 2 hours. Fishing was OK missed lots of fish only managed landing one. My friend Lance got 2 and missed a couple. We were using 3 inch swim baits and small grubs.
