Boatless No More

Condo in Port Charlotte; high of 88 today
We are now the owners of this 2002 Seamaster 2600 Walkaround Offshore Fishing Cuddy
The couple we bought her from, Carolyn and Larry, bought her new in Port Charlotte. It was a bittersweet sale for them, as Larry is ill and can no longer handle the boat. It was a blessing for both families. They relieve themselves of a payment and maintenance and we get a like new boat.
She has 319 hours, Volva 5.7 IO motor with Penta drive. There's just enough room for 2 to sleep below decks. She's set up for fishing and cruising. There's a portapotie with pumpout, a small sink downstairs, 2 bait wells with aerators, 2 fishboxes to store the big catch (or beer/ice), a Garmin 182 GPS, a Humminbird 400 fishfinder, fridge, windlass with Danforth anchor, marine radio, full beam swim step with ladder, cockpit seating for 6 and a user friendly walk around bow. There is a hard top over the helm and a bimimi top for the cockpit.
Low book value is $28,860. High book value is $32,780.
Oh, I almost forgot. Our price? $20,000.
I love it when a plan comes together.
Now we need to figure out her new name. Any suggestions?
See our blog entry from December 29, 2007. Read the last three paragraphs. We are considering recommissioning the vessel as "Messing About".
