That’s what I thought.

Plus when I saw Justin’s 28’ I wished I had one.

Try hanging out with the 28' twins most days you're on the water!
I tell myself I don't have buyers remorse.

Told Justin he’s not allowed to let my wife see his boat.

That’s how I got in trouble w/cruisers on Lake Erie. Let my wife on my neighbors aft cabin.
We had one 6 months later!

it is being sold through a broker, he told me the boat was in excellent condition, solid floor and transom, and that when the seats were redone, all issues were addressed, so take that information for what it is worth. Also the boat is currently located on Long Island NY, and as of a week ago, was waiting to be shrink wrapped. Both motors were remanufactures with low hours and that the owner had a complete third engine for parts that went with the sale. Also trailer was "like-new". I was interested but changed my mind. Between my son and I we have 5 boats (2 checkmates), so enough is enough, I think!! Anyway, it would be nice if one of the Nor-easterners could take a look for you.

That's a bummer it's not in Brick NJ any longer because I would have definitely checked it out for you. I'm only 20min from Brick. If there's a chance that I can get to LI NY next week and if the boat isnt rapped by then I will try to check it out.

Any help would be appreciated. That is why this forum rocks.
I hear you on the too many boats, I already have 3:
1972 Marinette 28' express cruiser, 318 chrysler
1987 Starflite 200 johnson
1995 premier pontoon/75 Merc

Might as well have one more to clean, maintain and wrench on..... it's good for the soul and keeps me busy so I'm not arguing with the wife lol.
