I haven't found any that I like, but I would not be opposed to outboards.
I have. I really like them. Hard to find one in good shape though, and when you do, they are on the East Coast and you have to jump on them fast.
I’m looking for a similar boat with OBs. What about 2901, Whaler 28/30 conquest, Wellcraft 29 coastal?
My buddy has the Abermarle 28. Rides awesome even in rough seas. His boat was under powered so he opted to put in higher HP Yanmars which fixed the issue.
I've followed your posts over the years. Seems like a fast boat would be better for your needs. My buddy had a 25' Boston Whaler that handled the chop great and was FAST. Perhaps widen your list of potential boat options.
If your interested in riding/fishing on a Abermarle, shoot me a message and I'll set it up.
What you are looking for is a Grady White 248 Voyager walkaround. Ali I believe had one way back ? The Voyager has the Sea V2 hull. Look at the second generation big improvements at the helm area. Can be rigged single or twin outboards. Find a good used one and re-power with a 250 Yamaha. Has room in cockpit for a 30 gal. bait tank no problem. This is the direction I'm moving, away from a Tiara 33
Beautiful liking vessels but rolling at drift would be hard to stomach since we like to drift fish or anchor for family outings.
A Whaler27 gives you everything your asking for except the stand up head but there plenty of room in there I’m 6’6”.
All the speed you need with twin 200’s
PM sent. Thanks Tony!
Why? I think several boats, including my 31 Tiara, have their fuel tanks under the cockpit deck, which is where most of us put our big bait tanks on the West Coast.
I hesitate to speak for Mac, but I think long term, you do not want any possible route for water (corrosion) to find any entry.....(screw holes, hoses, etc.)
