I bought this from this forum last summer and got more into diving and spearfishing than fishing so I'm gonna let her go at a loss so I can eventually upgrade.

She cruises nice at about 38mph and I have got 53mph with just me on board in a calm sea. Top speed loaded is about 43 mph. I have never computed the GPH at cruise but the previous owner said it burns about 1 gallon of gas per 2 miles traveled at cruise. I really wish I had a fuel management system to tell me but I don't.

Scott, it can handle more water than you, trust me. My little 18 footer has been in small craft advisories with real 6-8 and 5-7 footers a couple of times before I chilled out a bit.As for offshore ability....

I'm sure there's plenty more on the old forum but you get the picture. I've been to the nipple, elbow and floaters off Venice.Fuel,sea conditions,weather,guts (brains or lack of)and time are your limitations.

I can personally vouch for Chris and this boat. Chris is a great guy who keeps everything he owns in emaculate condition. I keep trying to talk him out of his Carolina Skiff, but he most definitely won't come off that. This Cape is a great boat from a stand up guy. Somebody is going to get a great boat for a great price.

Man, I can't believe you've got no bids on your auction... it's a very nice boat. I enjoyed diving from it.

If I was in a position to buy, I'd make an offer on it.
