Looking for a fishing boat in NorCal - keeping in mind that to me, San Francisco may as well be LA. I'm in Eureka, 90 miles from the Oregon border.

I just got rid of a 17 ft Whaler clone and looking for something with a deep V that will be more appropriate for the 60 to 80 mile round trip runs I usually take up and down the Lost Coast or out for tuna when they're close enough.

Pretty set on a 4 stroke outboard. Will consider a late model E-tec or Optimax if hours are reasonably low. I actually have a Honda BF90 if presented with a nice hull that just needs repowering. Not willing to drive over the Golden Gate and prefer to keep it between Sonoma County and Coos Bay if possible.

I purchased something that meets my criteria last week, a 2005 Aquasport Osprey 185. The original Yamaha F90 is missing its lower unit but I've had the top end checked out and looks good so on the hunt for a lower unit now. I'll miss opening weekend but hope to be out trolling for salmon by the middle of June.
