  1. The same reason you have 14 golf clubs.
  2. Aquasport 250 Osprey, new electronics, enclosures and pushed by a Merc 250 Pro XS.
  3. Some people buy $1,000 reels, $400 coolers, so if you don’t lose your tools, why not buy something once?
  4. Upgraded electronics, I now have 2 screens and moved the radio to the overhead box.Before and after shots.This of season projects... replace interior lights and add under gunnel LED's, replace rub rail, retire trailer and add posts.BOAT = Bring Over Another Thousand .
  5. I took the plunge a couple of years ago and can share my process.Will it be for you fishing or a family boat? If you want to do more than fish and take guests out, you may want an enclosed head (bathroom).Are you looking to stay in the bay or try blue water fishing?I found a 26 ft center console with. T-top for $12k, it has plenty of room behind the helm and a casting deck. I upgraded the electronics ($4k) and know that in a few years I will,have to invest in a new engine.I also invested in getting my captains license, which will be good if I want to do charters, but really no replacement for time on the water.There are plenty of local captains willing to teach you how to dock
  6. From the album Random Images IV

  7. it has dual pickups, no thank you I have a Silver 250 that I use. the Reel is no longer available on SOL. thank you all for looking!
  8. Yes, the knob is the only difference, a $55.00 upgrade.
  9. thanks for the offer, but I will pass. I will give this a few more days until I post it elsewhere.
  10. From the album ZEEBAAS 27 X2

  11. 320 yards of 65 pound PP, 40 pounds of drag, should stop any inshore fish
  12. Twin / double pick ups how much line? unknown
  13. I am selling a new in box Zee-Bass 27-X2 with the upgraded offshore power handle. The reel has never been fished and never registered. The 65 test power pro is also new. I was going to use it for Tuna but after learning about the 80% mortality rate... I won't do it. The base reel is listed at $ 989.00. The price is $800.00 firm, I am giving the SOL community a shot before it goes to one of the major auction sites. Local pick up, shipping will be at cost dependent on distance. PayPal preferred.
