What do you guys think here? Seems like there could be a deal to be had here.

Is 60hp enough for this to cross bars? I know bartenders are handy, but that seems light to me.

I’m doing the math on moorage fees and insurance, starting to wonder if repowering needs to get factored in as well.

I’d be using this for recreational fishing/crabbing. If it’s good for the ocean, maybe mooring in Depoe Bay.

Thanks for any input.

I'm guessing cruising at maybe 8-10knt I wouldn't want to go anywhere at that speed unless I was commercial fishing and making lots of money.

Unique cool looking boat, would be good if you’re not in a hurry. Seems like you’d get a lot for your money if there’s nothing horribly wrong with it

Cool boat but you'd have to run a 60 hp motor pretty hard to move it.

Yeah. Seems like repowering it up to ~100hp would be needed.

Speed isn’t a huge issue, I’d mostly be doing inshore stuff - rockfish and lingcod.
