#41464 picked up a new ride!

Posted by eliteftlaud on 31 July 2011 - 09:18 PM

Over the last few years i've spent some time on a friends 1989 24' Privateer that he's since put a honda four stroke 200 on and more recently we've added a tower to it .  I fell in love with the simplicity, deck space,  and the usefulness of the boat.  I began looking for one of my own as my next boat.  after several months of unsuccessfully locating one locally i nearly jumped in my truck to drive to texas when we drove right by one for sale in the keys.  i bought the boat the following day.  After comparing hull numbers the one i purchased was hull number 981 and my friend Brian owns hull number 982.  what are the chances.... and now that reunite tied up next to each other in key largo...

The boats in great shape, i just need a new motor.  It has a great running 2000 225hp EFI, the problem is it burns a lot of gas for the type of fishing and boating i do - i'm thinking probably a four stroke honda or maybe an optimax.  any votes?  

heres a few pics.
