unit needs to be hooked back up the Bluetooth went out)
3 Captains chairs/cushions are like new
The gas tank was replaced about 6 years ago. I had it made very strong. I was present to witness soap test for pin hole leaks. There were none. It was done right.
I had the plate for removable chair reinforced. There is coosa board attached to hull, then aluminum plate secured to coosa board then the top plate which the seat screws into attached to that. It rock solid. The chair will break before the plate comes loose(common problem)
The motor has 2900hrs. However, I had the powerhead and gearcase changed out at 2200 hrs. The compressor is 6 months old. All the coils are 6 months old. Fuel system had been changed out. Throttle cables are like new. There are many parts that have been replaced under warranty.
Nearly all the work was done at Offshore Performance. The guys there do great work and they have all the records at the shop. Plugs, all filters, and water pump should be good for another 100hrs. I didnt do a compression test but it fires right up, and runs/sounds great. I have used Mercury Premium plus synthetic blend oil for the life of the motor.
Just had the nonskid reshot. Boat has been wet sanded and totally detailed inside and out.
Trailer gets serviced at Boatmaster Trailers 1-2 times a year. I just replaced one of the hubs. They said the others are in good shape. The axils are weathered.
They will need to be changed out at some point.
I have rode in many other Boca Grande hulls, and the ride of this hull is hard to beat.
