Here is our new baby!!!!!:D

2007 23' Open leftover. She comes with a lot of the 23T options but with the price tag of the 23 open and a single engine for less maint and fuel burn. I just got these from Lucky Lady a few days ago.

The boat is still up in Toms River, probably won't be delivered until late April. Erik from EMS is installing new electronics in it for us, nothing fancy by any stretch of the imagination but within our budget. Getting a Garmin 540 gps, Raymarine ds 600, and a Icom 304 VHF.

I'm super excited as I'm sure my brother is...we can't wait to take this puppy out for a spin!!!

Here she is....bottom will be painted black.

With the F250 we should be looking at least 2.2-3mpg fuel, and that is a great improvement over our Albe that was running us around 1.1-1.3 mpg.

Thanks guys, she is definitely way to nice for us:) The Albe was great but this is a vast improvement for us. That Albe was way too damn big for us and we couldn't use it like we wished...this rig costs us more...but divided by 2 it's workable.

Anyway it's a great rig and I am super happy to have been able to get rid of our Albe and get this sweet boat on top of it...win win!!

Very nice. Congratulations. You'll use this one a whole lot more.

Looks like a hundred rollers on the trailer.:eek:

Now get some blood & beer on it. Pour a can on the deck. It's good luck.
