  • 1997 hull, 2009 DF90 Suzuki outboards with just under 2000 hours.
  • 2019 refit (most work done by Pasadena Boatworks) incl. new pumps, electrical system, switches and panels, fuel lines, hydraulic steering, rubrail, autopilot. Cushions/hatches/Porta-Pottie/cooler/aft cooler swing-back seat all replaced; boat decked in ShipsDek.
  • 2020 custom top (total work of art) added w/9 rocket launchers, fore/aft spreader lights, and a cobia spotting station up top w/rodholders.
  • Electronics: 9” Lowrance Gen2 Touch MFD w/StructureScan and Airmar TM260 1-kW transducer, 3G Broadband radar, SiriusXM, Si-Tex autopilot, Standard Horizon VHF w/integrated GPS/DSC, ScanStrut cell phone holder/wireless charger, USB ports, Siren remote monitoring w/geofencing/bilge high water/battery alarms, Fusion Apollo stereo w/ 4x Bose 151 speakers, Jensen amp and subwoofer (potent enough to be dangerous).
  • Teak Isle tackle station w/5x tackleboxes and 2x drawers.
  • Tandem axel trailer, tires/brakes replaced 2020, winch replaced 2019.

The Good: This hull is the smoothest you’ll find for the size, and going full-tilt into a three- to four-foot head sea is not a problem. Engines and boat have been well maintained and engines meticulously flushed after each and every trip; boat gets 3.0 – 3.5 MPG at cruise. Far more deck space than most 22’ boats; lots of elbow room w/four anglers, five is no prob, six is doable though cramped. Fishboxes are utterly massive.

The boat carries its beam all the way forward and has significantly more deck space than most 22-footers. Between the forward cooler seat, leaning post, and aft swing-back seat, there's seating for five.

The Bad: It has a snappy roll when drifting in a beam sea of two feet or more. Slaps some when idling (not when running) into a big head sea. Cruising speed is only 22 - 24 mph. Trailer has dented fender.

suzuki outboards
These engines have been treated with complete TLC. 

Here are a couple of shots of the motors with the cowls removed during the 2019 refit. While they were at Pasadena Boatworks they were given a complete 1000 hour service (all the usual 100 hour stuff plus high-pressure fuel filter/breather-hose/fuel lines replacement and additional inspections).

Here's a view of the foredeck area and ShipsDek. Note that the old cooler and Lexan cabin top (far right) have both been replaced with new.
t-top pipework
The custom top was built and installed by All In Marine, in Wachapreague, and is a work of welding art. The white semi-circle 2/3 of the way forward is where you unzip the canvass, then step from the forward cooler to the platform to get up top. Compartment at left with Lexan door and top houses a (rather tight) head compartment.
cobia station
Here's a view of the seat from above (top zippered closed). You rest your feet on the platform or pipes.
tackle station on the boat
This is the manufacturer's pic of the tackle station. It's located under the leaning post so sort of impossible to get a good photo angle on, but it holds way more than enough gear.

If you want to see the boat in use in sloppy seas with four people aboard, this video was shot aboard the it last year.
