Exactly! I grew up on a boat and plan to have one again soon. I'd like to get somethig around 30' with a 10' beam... Not towing that sucker! There is a Marina right next to my station too. I plan on spending 6 months a year on my retirement boat Someday... Haha

Nothing more relaxing than going and finding different coves to Moore up in and no better sleep than what you get on a boat!

What kind of MPG does it get?

With the right props it will do about 75mph. I never really tried to figure the mpg. It sucks the fuel pretty quick. Somewhere in the 5-6 hr range to run it dry. I think it is either a 75-85 gal tank. That's not full tilt either. I haven't been on it in a couple years. I'm hoping to get it back in running shape and on Lake Norman just outside Charlotte, NC towards the end of this year.

Nice looking boat.

Been spending lots of time on Mountain Island Lake, lately. Find lots of glassy water on the Catawba River between Mountain Island & Lake Norman Dam.

My work boat. St. Lawrence River. 22' McKee Craft. Most of our new boats are 24' Whalers. Like to get a safe boat out of our station.

The river there is great. We used to go on that a lot years ago. I'm sure I will be back on it with a fishing boat soon.
