For a boat that size, do yourself a favor and look for a Livingston.

Wow, the ultimate upgrade coming from the 17' Tahiti.

Sounds like you'll be on the water in no time.

Thanks Collin. I didn’t plan to be on the water so soon. Originally was shooting for next summer. Davis had just removed a complete IO package for an evinrude G2 repowering and a KAD43 got pulled. The same day it did I made an offer on it. Turns out my tanks are fine so those don’t need attention for some time.

If you look up a KAD43 the engine ALONE is 10 grand for a 2001. When I heard the entire full package was for 5kish I hopped on it like white on rice.

Boat comes with radar and a nice simrad unit. I’ll keep the radar and simrad for radar (really like a separate screen set up), but buy a 942xs garmin with through hull duscer for chirp. The boat came with fresh gelcoat and all the grunt work done.

For anyone looking for a radon, Anderson, wilson.. don’t give up there are deals out there. Keep your threads up “looking for” and people will contact you over time. Many people MANY will tell you it cannot be done and you’re very stupid for thinking it’s possible to afford as an average joe.

The other day I was visiting my mechanic and he had a customer who bought a 24 ft what looked to be a ply glass radon (at anchor down marine in Atascadero) old urchin boat he was working on. It came with a rebuilt Volvo penta 0 hours and 0 hours on the drive. He got the entire deal for 15k. Unfortunately the seller learned he had cancer and needed to sell immediatey. He’s going to use it for commercial but wants to convert it to twins... crazy I know, he has a brand new Volvo penta but wants twins for commercial. The boat will be used in SF. So that engine might be for sale if anyone’s interested.

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

Looking for advice and referral for a hard top or bimini enclosure. This is for a Skipjack 20 open. Ive looked into Atlantic Towers, Pacific Yacht towers, Dan Shannon, but their hard tops are about as much as the boat,

Anyone had luck doing something different ...or you just gotta pay up and do it right the first time? I kinda half assed a T Top on my previous boat and would like something nicer this time.

Thanks
...from Santa Barbara

Check boater forums, e.g. Mako, Parker, etc. classifieds or join forum and post ISO. There's a lot of gear available in the Gulf after a hurricane

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

i should have done a bit more homework before purchase, the enclosures are about as much as the boat.

Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

Just be an adult and have Jeff or Ed build you a pilothouse.

It will LITERALLY be the best investment you can make on the boat.

Comfortwise. Obviously not financially.
