Custom trim tabs that get this boat on plane super quick...even loaded

The boat sat for a while until we purchased it in 2016. Everything that needed done has been done on it. We spent lots of time fishing lake Erie and going to the islands on this boat.

Comfortably sleeps 4.
All safety equipment goes with boat. Includes ropes, fenders, flares, life jackets, distress flag.

Dual axle Eagle trailer goes with it.
Can be towed with a half ton vehicle. I towed with F150 for a while and an Avalanche.

It is turn key...water ready. I would not hesitate to haul it to lake erie today, sail her 60 miles to the islands and stay a week on her.

Has a working head, fresh water, working fridge, working stove. Plugs in to shore power.

I have well over $17,000 in her over the past 3 years. We planned on keeping her longer, but decided to upgrade at the end of last year to a 32 foot Carver.

She cruises about 25 mph at 3200 rpm with 2 people on board. About 22 mph with 4. I have had it over 30 mph by myself on a calm day without pushing it to wide open throttle.

We have had her in rough seas and she always does great. 7-9 footers once while stuck in an unexpected storm. I wouldnt want to do it again, but she performed great and got us home.

No joy rides. Serious buyers only. Can water test at Portage lakes just minutes from my house with serious intention. Will bring to lake Erie for serious buyer.

Asking $9000. I can't ask to get what I have into her, but I am asking a bit less than she is worth.

Boat is ready to go.

We have caught tons of walleye and perch from the boat.
