  11. I recently finished converting my 2016 Bayliner 175 to all electric. It cruises nicely at 25 to 30 mph. It is powered by a 147hp electric motor. The range is 25 miles. It takes 20 hours to charge at 120v and 6 hours at 240v. With respect to weight, it was a wash after the conversion. It comes in at a little over 1,900 pounds. The max speed is 53mph. I did the complete conversion myself in my garage. If you are interested in taking on a project like this, I would be more than happy to help. I have managed to maintain the boats original capacity and improved performance with the exception of a shorter range. Here is a link to a walk-around: https://youtu.be/my0TX3INjSk Here is a link to details on specs and conversion components: http://evalbum.com/5217 Here is a link to the boat cruising on the water: https://youtu.be/BRqcp4Tzzrg Here are links to the major components: http://hpevs.com/hpevs-ac-electric-m...-ac34-ac35.htm http://curtisinstruments.com/?fuseac...controllers/64 http://www.evwest.com/catalog/produc...fbt9butr0gbss4 Please let me know what you think.

  14. 2001, 27' MAXUM 2700 SCR in Excellent Condition! Single Gas 7.4 MerCruiser 310HP Sterndrive with Bravo III Duo Prop Outdrive Dockside Air Conditioning - Awesome Cockpit Seating - Beautiful Maple Wood Interior! Brand New Listing at Only $29,500 (Lift Stored with Lots of TLC) (Update: THIS BOAT SOLD. Please CLICK HERE so that I can better assist you with another purchase option.    VESSEL WALK-THROUGH: Upon your personal inspection, you will not believe that his boat is a 2001. Keeping her lift stored, fully covered, and always detailed has resulted in this boat appearing ten years (or more) newer that she actually is. Starting aft, you will find a retractable swim ladder up to the large swim platform for easy boarding for water skiing or scuba diving adventures. As you can see from the photos below, the cockpit seating arrangement is second to none giving more than ample seating for lots of friends and family. In addition, there is a filler board (with cushion) that enables the starboard forward and aft seating area to become one very large tanning bed. Located aft to port is a fresh water pull-out hose for cooling off on hot summer days. Directly below the fresh water hose is a very convenient fresh water engine flush hook-up...a must for any lift stored boat like this one! Included is cockpit snap-in deck carpeting that is brand new and has never been used. The microwave oven and stove have never been used as well. Moving forward to port is a wet bar (with sink) and large guest bench seat facing to starboard for guests to hang out with the captain. And, no matter where your guests are seated, while underway the Bennett Trim Tabs make it easy to keep the boat perfectly level. Another really great feature on this boat is the walk-through windshield which makes it extremely easy and convenient to get to the bow area. This MAXUM 2700 SCR is powered up right with the largest engine package option and features the MerCruiser 7.4L MPI V-8 Engine along with a Bravo III Outdrive with SS Counter Rotating Duo Props that really makes for excellent performance and easy docking even in wind and strong current! The risers and manifolds were replaced in 2014 and still are looking new. In 2015 the owner had a new outdrive bracket installed and new alternator and oil pan, and in 2016 a new water pump. With safety being number one, this owner has done it right by being proactive on necessary repairs. THE SALON: Walking down the steps to the salon, to starboard you will find a privacy head area with a sink; shower with wrap-around shower curtain; EcoFlush head system; and storage compartments. Moving forward is a large V-Berth, storage locker; ceiling sky light hatch (with screen cover included) and a removable center cushion so that the large black corian dinette table can easily be inserted. The full galley with stove; microwave oven; sink; and ample storage throughout is located midship to port with the refrigerator located directly to starboard. You will also find a high quality KENWOOD AM/FM/IPOD (plays music from your cell phone) Stereo System. Directly above the Stereo System you will find easy access to the A/C - D/C panel. The guest cabin is located aft of the galley and sleeps two adults. This area is also great for additional storage space for longer boating trips. ADDITIONAL FEATURES: Although this boat has a bimini top as well as a full eisenglass camper enclosure, it does not have a radar arch. Some MAUXM 2700 SCR models came with a fiberglass radar arch which may look sort of cool, but it's really not practical for a boat like this. With this boat not having a radar arch, the bridge clearance is only around 7' 3" which is a must if travel through the many inland canal systems that you'll find on Marco Island and in Cape Coral Florida for example. This way, you can still have a nice large 27 foot express cruiser with all of the amenities of home without having to wait for low tide to get in and out of these low bridge areas.  This MAXUM 2700 SCR is also excellent for weekend get-aways because once you reach your destination, you can forget about paying for expensive hotels during season and instead plug in your dockside shore power cable (included) and have Air Conditioning, Hot Water Showers and even cook up any fresh fish that you caught during the day on the stove! Speaking of fish...the aft bench seat in the transom is removable, to create a larger cockpit space area for bringing in the big ones! The electric windlass anchor system makes it a breeze when moving to different locations to anchor out at. Other Electronics include a RayMarine VHF Marine Radio w/antenna; FireBoy Fire Extinguishing System; Danforth Illuminated Compass; Depth Indicator; and all of the standard 2001 Illuminated MAXUM 2700 SCR Helm Instrumentation. If you have been searching for an attractive express cruiser with beautiful lines, that delivers all of the amenities of much larger vessels, that won't break the bank, stop looking because you have just found it! Call or inquire today for a personal walk-through...you'll be extremely impressed with this one!!!

  15. I am purchasing a Nautic Star 2102 Legacy in the next couple of weeks. It is coming with a new Yamaha 150, trim tabs, Garmin gps, and offshore radio. I plan to fish and frequent the Ocean Isle Beach area and was wondering if anyone could assist with some good fishing spots that are within a reasonable distance from shore. Kind of new to this so any advise or assistance is greatly appreciated. I would love to fish wrecks including trolling or bottom fishing and would love advise on locations and gear I should be making available. Thanks in advance for any assistance. The boat is 21' in length, has a 13" draft, 19 degree deadrise at the transom, 25" transom height, 42 degree deadrise at entry, 75 gallon fuel capacity, and weighs around 2600 lbs with all gear. How far could I safely venture out and what is within reach with a boat with these spec's?

  17. Hi, I tried emailing/ using the vendor form to contact Wiley about my free classified website called www..myboatsforsale.com where users can post their boat for free for 3 months and have up to 12 photos. You pay nothing to list ever. We also have thousands of listing to browse. It would give your users extra exposure of their boat they are trying to sell and provide my users a forum to go to. It only takes a few minutes to register and post a listing.  Also could we swap links for free since I have just started this site?
