Yesterday my son and three of his buddies bought themselves a 25 foot Wellcraft .
They had it inspected by a certified boat mechanic and he gave the boat thumbs up. Everything works as it should. His only advice was that in the future to replace the manifold and risers. I don’t have any other information on the boat yet, but it sure looks good.7150F12B-FEDD-4FCF-B157-58D32EB0A1FC.jpeg

Update. I thought they bought a Grady White. My mistake, they looked at one but bought the Wellcraft in the pictures.

McKenna thinks it to her valve he has even taken off the valve cover he said 3 to 4K to take the motor out to fix it his partners don’t want to invest in the boat so this might be a very short term ownership
