Anyone want to share their opinions of the Key West 18'6" CC? I'd appreciate it.

Best regards,

Besides the manditory Jimmy Buffet CD's...
You'll have to start wearing palm tree shirts and drinking fruity mango things made in a blender...(not a problem?!)

...Look for safe rod storage while under way and a place to store your stuff.
A T-top or bimini option makes a BIG difference on a sunny day...but that's just me...sissy boy...
Whatever...Ride before you buy!

The most cost effective measure is to have friends who have boats...gas money is cheaper than loan payments! :biggrin:

Fruity mango drinks from a blender are starting to sound pretty good...but I think that South Beach says they are a no-no. The shirts on the other hand I can happily do. Makes quite an impression at the office, let me tell you...

As far as the boat advice goes...I really want a clone of Phracas, pure and simple. "Tillthen, I will ALWAYS spring for gas and dinner. :D

Best regards,


P.S.: The Key West got away...too riich for my blood right now.
