New boat!!!
 
Okay well new to me anyway.
I have been looking about 3 years for a good deal on a nice family boat. I finally found it.

1988 Galaxie
3.0 mercruiser
The lower end and transom was rebuilt last year. The top was off of a Crownline. The boat mechanic that sold it used it for his family boat the last couple of years. He said it will do 47mph and run all weekend on one tank. I cant wait til summer now. We have taken it out a couple of times and like it a lot. But I will have to winterize it soon.

Congratulations. You're going to have to provide another link though. The craigslist ad has been closed out. However, should you need volunteer passengers, I am close by. ;)

Guess we wont see much of you around here next summer. :)
Enjoy it.

Why did it need the lower end (are you talking lower drive unit) and transom rebuilt? Might have hit something REAL hard. Just sayin, oh, and I worked in the boat business for about 15 years.

You do know what the two happiest days in a boat owners life are, don't you?

^ you buy it, and when you invite T-Pain for a cruise?

I started out in a very similar boat with the same size engine. Its very economical. You and your family will have lots of fun.

You knw the other thing they say about boats - once you get used to it, it's three feet to short and time to move up.

You are not the only one with a new boat.

Some in England has just launched this - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...kes-waves.html

Am I the only one that can't see the boat?

I've been wanting a boot too. I'd like a pontoon for fishing and relaxing on our local lakes. Or anything like the call a deck boat.

Right now's the time too. Motivated sellers, wanting Christmas money.

It's so true! My family had a boat when I was growing up. I loved it at first, but then was so happy to see it go. :lol:

I do not know why you cannot see them. I can. I gave $1500 for it.
