Even though I have plenty of friends to fish with I bought another boat that's towable because I didn't want something that big to where I had to slip it.
I really enjoy going to San Quintin which I haven't done in a number of years. And there are certain thing I can do with a smaller boat that are just no possible or extremely hard to do with something that's 35'+.
I purchased a 1998 272 Sailfish as shown in the pic. While its very cool that there is a folding tower with a full 2nd station, it is very heavy and takes at least 3 of us to put it up and down.
now during the season I will probably slip the boat. Definitely if I leave the tower on it.
So I am looking for opinions. Thinking of selling the tower, motors, controls. there is a seat which is currently off, keeping the seat and installing a belly ring.
use that money to put toward newer 4 stroke outboards.
Since I never plan to keep it in a slip "full time" I can see it being a PIA when towing. But on the other hand I may only have to fold it once or twice a season.
What does a tower like this cost/worth?
