This has been a really great boat for my family and I.  Whomever wins this boat will have a pretty good boat on their hands.  I hate to get rid of it, but with a career change, I just don't have the time to justify keeping her.  I paid $15500 for this boat 3 seasons ago and have done over 7500 in upgrades since I have purchased her. New Bimini top that splits New windshield for BiminiNew custom canvas over the lower deckNew custom sun screens over the side windowsNew carpet and curtains in salon New futon in salon New upholstery on dinetteinterior led accent lightingSome of the other upgrades include:windlassshower with hot and cold on swim platformpurasan sanitation system (no holding tank or pumpouts needed) coast guard approvedkicker brand speakers (4) with 12 inch subs  (I think approximately 900w amp)Bluetooth kenwood deckthe salon area will sleep 4 with a new foldout leather futon and the dinette converting to a bedthe main berth will sleep 2 electric toilet with macerator it showerThis boat has always been dry docked 6 months of the year and always gone over meticulously before she is dropped in the water.  I noticed that the trim tabs had a crack in the fiberglass this year so I removed them (I still have them).  It was not a huge concern for me as I usually do not run over 2500 rpm.  It has twin 351's that run strong  but I would like to keep it that way and she was just used for meandering around the three rivers of Pittsburgh.  I really had no reason for running this boat hard.  I have a ski boat for that.  She presents a very nice appearance especially for her age and I constantly receive compliments on it.  It is wet docked until October 31st and you can use my slip until then.  After that you are on your own.  My loss is your gain.  The negatives...there is no a/c or generator.  With the French doors open I have really never found the need for an a/c as it has always stayed comfortable.  As for the generator, a portable one has run everything from my fridge to microwave just fine.
