Correct a typo, 250 HP, not 230 HP.

Some more features.

Full transom box. Volvo neutra salt engine flush kit. Dual compact horn, dual windshield wipers, fuel filter and water separating filter, remote oil filter mount, and power assist steering.

Galvanic isolator when on shorepower, Uniden digital depthsounder in-hull, first fishfinder/plotter mentioned is an Apelco 530 black and white.

Dave, not sure.

Is a toss up.

Wife likes but doesn't like it. Likes boating life and doesn't. Likes boat people and camaraderie and doesn't. Can catch my drift, right.

Weighing the decisions and options.

Is a nice boat. Get comments on it most every time am on it.

Looks like I'm keeping it.

Wife says I would get rid of her before the boat.

I'm going to keep her and the boat.

Everyone enjoy the rest of the summer.
