From what i heard those boats are good, this guy i met had one awhile back and he used to pound fish and go 30 plus out Haleiwa, it was for sale at the time and was pricey about 15k that was about 20 years ago.

Thank you 4 Boys, I was wondering too, if this was made by the same guys who made Jackpot boats, so coming from North shore should be able to handle rough water. (Not that I intend to go fish in the rough, but good to know that it can carry me out safely)

Dave, this boat need a lot of hp? I saw one for sale a long time ago, it had a 130hp Volvo in it. I figure about a 115hp four stroke would be good? The boat was not a beamy boat so I figure would be pretty good fuel wise. Thanks for the info!

Jimmy, My friend had a Honda 90hp 4 stroke on his and the boat used to fly, so 115hp would be plenty enough.

Just picked up a 20’ No Ka Oi With a 115 outboard 2 stroke. They started in Maui in the 70s when I used to live there. I’d go down to the shop and hang out, so when I saw it for sale it was like finding an old friend!
Just start cleaning it up and haven’t put it in the water yet.

Nice boat! Never saw them with that cab, most had the sport bridge w/o the cab or center console. Good score, Mick!
