Well after fishing my Palmetto Bay boat for 2.5 years, it was time for a change. I wanted to stay with a center console in the 23' range and here's what I found.
1979 23' Sea Ox. The boat was originally rigged for commercial work and took on water during a storm and sunk to the gunnels at the dock. The boat was totally gutted and restored in '04-'05 using all top quality material (west system epoxy, awlgrip, etc...). It's powered by a 2005 225hp Merc Optimax. She cruises at 30kts, burning 8 gals/hr and tops out at 44kts.
The previous owner did an amazing job bringing this classic hull back to better than new conditions. Here are a few pics...

Looks better than a new one. What's the name on the side?
Nice boat. Doug.
Thanks for the offer for a boat ride, but I don't know ANYTHING about any specks on the sea side of the ES.
The name of the new boat is 'Changes Made'
