"007" Pursuit 2870 Offshore
Boat made it to the Pasha yard yesterday and should be loaded onto the M/V Jean Anne in the next couple of days for the sail over on the 23rd. The experience of purchasing the boat from the mainland and having it shipped was a challange but was lucky enough to deal with some solid, ethical and standup companies along the way. If anyone is looking into shipping a boat over I'd be happy to talk you through the process I used. My key was getting a quality surveyor and a complete and detailed survey prior to pulling the trigger. I was suprised at the number of "diamonds in the rough" that were out there, the market favors the buyer in a big way. Want to thank Pat and Mike and the Foxy Lady for making the withdrawl not having my own boat a little easier. Next round is on me. Took the kids to Lake Wilson a few times with a friends 15' whaler and the fishing was great, mucho bass in numbers just no size yet. My daughter Nicole is the reining champ which is a huge thorn in both my boys side:rofl:. Here are some photos of of the new boat 1996 Pursuit Offshore, twin 250hp Crusader 350XL's. Still trying to come up with the name as 007 is not my thing.

Joe & family,
Way to go on pulling the trigger; fished on friends 27-28' pursuit (twin yami OB's) 06 thru 09, solid boat and pursuit has quite a bit of history in the boat building business. Glad to hear all the positive comments you made about the process that's very refreshing. Looking forward to some fishin' reports on the soon to be named Roland Family fish killa!!!

Russ,
Kathy likes the 808 idea says your of a creative mind. My callsign at work is WINGS 00 and when I send messages back to the Operation Center I use W00, the guys working the floor used to ask "who is woo" the kids think I should name her "WOO WHO".

All of those names sound good. You might want to abandon using O all together. Goodluck with that boat, looks like a solid performer.

Maybe you should name it "puka pocket". With them big gas engines, it'll be a fast ride to the gas station. Not being critical here, please don't be offended, just commenting, really nice boat, should handle the rough waters nicely, watch out fish!

Sexy boat.

Would be cherry if the helm was moved forward more so you could be protected by a nice eisenglass enclosure.

WOW that boat is NICE. always loved the soft ride of mainland boats with the big V. only downside is landing big fish since they have such high gunnel height, man we had such hard times pullin in 150 lb size ahi, gotta time the wave right

I hope to have the problem of getting big fish over the gunnel (ha ha), I was thinking of using the transom for any heavy fish after they've been dispatched. The boat has the full eisenglass enclosure and should be dry when up, the waters off the NS will be a good test of that theory. I looked far and wide for the center console setup as I'm in the middle of the fray when fishing with novices or myself.

W06,
Kathy says to name it the "WOO WHO", although PUKA Pocket may be more appropriate. Not a bad deal a 28' tender for the ski, only a small fee required for securing and icing down your catch.

Cool boat! I just did the same thing a few month's ago. Bought the boat in California and shipped it here via pasha. Sight unseen purchase. Had it surveyed and my brother in-law that lives nearby handled the paperwork and towed it to San Diego for me.

My boat is nice and I am stoked. Dealing with pasha was very easy. It cost $4,400 for mine in case any is curious. Bought from a BD'er. Here was the post:

Yea the gunnels make it nice when the kids are out fishing with me, no worries about the little man going swimming unannounced. I'll be keeping it up in Waialua on the trailer but for long weekends might just pay Paul for the transient slip up here in Haleiwa.

Very Nice Ride. Bought a Grady White that was shipped in from the Mainland 3 years ago and it is worth it. Nice fishing boat and nice boat to take the family out for a swim off of Waikiki.
