New Tuna Ride

My bro's "pending" new ride for next year. No more cold, wet, rocking 12 hour days on the bank for me next year! :-)

1993 26' General Marine

Very good boat John.
General Marines are a very big Downeast for a 26 ft boat.
Gets a little getting used to at the 16-18 kt pace but you will love it at the fuel dock.
Best of luck to your brother with it.
This your brother Chris ?
Keeping it where your Seacraft toes up ?

Hi Ron - Chris's new toy; read nothing but good things about them. I won't mind the speed....more time to sleep on the way out for the crew! We'll be keeping the boats at the same place this year; Chris is keeping the SC for now too. The 23 SC is a great boat, but I'm with Mike....I like to stay dry and warm and we've had too many days coming back where we stayed a little too long and payed the price.

Kind of a small cockpit for fishing. What engine does she have?

454 Marine....not a diesel but low hrs. If the deal goes through, the cabin will be cut back; also will need some floor deck work. My bro's plan is to have it ready by the fall. Might fish it as is for a year....would be tough fishing the SeaCraft on cold & rough days knowing this was sitting in the driveway.

One scare...a broken ground wire spade connector stopped us like someone pulled the kill switch. Quick fix....otherwise smooth sailing.
