Hi. This is a 25.5 walk around cuddie cabin. I lost my storage spot so I need to sell it. I used the boat in Lake Michigan for the last 5 seasons. It runs great and always starts great. It never disappointed me. The pictures of it in the water are the last day of the season last year. I have the tube tied to the top in these pics. The boat is dirty now from sitting in storage all winter.  The boat is in perfect working order. It was used for fishing and tubing. It pulls a tube no problem. It has downriggers that slide in and out they don’t get in the way of the tube. It has a bathroom with a little toilet thingy. The boat is old so it has its share of nicks and scratches. The worst problem with the boat is the rubber molding on the starboard side needs to be screwed in. It needs a fuel overflow fitting as well. They are not expensive. It has a hard top that I built but it also comes with a soft bimini top. The hardtop gives a place to tie the tube when not using it and it also works well to hold onto when going to the front of the boat. The Remote spotlight is also mounted to the hardtop. The front of the boat has a couple of padded seats that are fun to lay out on when cruising. The boat comes with at least one tube and tube inflator, swim toys,  downriggers, a new GPS, compass,marine radio, all safty gear, 6+ life jackets, type 3 throwable, horn, flaregun, bumpers, ropes, remote spotlight and pretty much everything now in the boat. The cabin has shore power, radio with remote, sink, stove, fridge, pull out storage drawers, padded benches, bathroom with door and toilet. It has storage under the benches and the compartment up front is for storing the hideaway anchor rope. The outside of the boat has proper seating for 7 , swivel captain chairs, marine radio, instrument panel that controls all the boats lighting, compass, gps, handy bins, whiper that needs a blade, cracked ski mirror, anchor light, cabin security doors, hard top, remote spotlight, anchor with chain and rope, bildge pump, led deck lights, fishing pole holders, downriggers, water fill port, fuel fill port, cabin hatch, shore power plug. Also the drain plug is an underwater spotlight. It lights up the back of the boat, really cool! The engine is a 5.7 merc. No problems at all. Starts good and sounds good. I would confidently put it in the water tomorrow and take it to the middle of Lake Michigan with no worries. The boat is in Romeoville IL.  You are welcome to come look at it.
