We quite like ours!

That is a nice boat, I delivered one from Ct. To N.J. years ago, very nice boat!

Here's a decent Albin 25 in SW Florida, but has a good updated trailer included.

1976 Albin 25 Deluxe, Repower Beta-28, Hard Top, Alum-Trailer, PERFECT

Nice find Larry! The aluminum trailer is $8-10K by itself and it's been re powered recently with a Beta 28! If most of it was done right that makes this a nearly free boat at $20K for someone looking for an Albin.

Of course it is.....it came off "your" list. You are Craig, aren't you.

I like this boat and particularly with the trailer. True, the re-power and trailer must have cost that much or close to it.

I saw this one, I think I want a single outboard pocket trawler?
Thank you very much!

fvkw,
You say you don't want the Albin ... that you want a single engined OB. Sounds like you want a sport fishing boat .. and it looks like you've already got on of those .. .? I think you just want an OB boat .. not a trawler.

Well I have owned a 40' Chrisovitch, a 26'Chriscraft, and 11 other boats. And now I want a Trawler, I am sorry I don't want an Albin. "Boating is a terminal Illness, that doesn't have a cure, the only remedy or remission is to buy another boat" Cappy!
I got my mind made up on a Rosborough, I just have to find the right one. But thank you for your concern.

fvkw,
The Rosborough boats have a good following and I like OB boats too. Is the Kencraft your's? Looks like you could just extend the cabin aft. I'll bet the Rosborough may be expensive. The Kencraft looks like a sport fisherman and we have one here on the west coast called a Parker that the USFS frequently uses. Many like them too.

I can have a camper back canvas put on the Kencraft? Or a hardtop and enclose it? So if I can't find the right boat, I have some options on my boat. And It's a good boat, I have had it 15 years. This boat has been very good to me.

Would A/C be Atlantic City?

Sounds good to me. On any kind of refit the owner has the benefit of having things bought or built specifically the way they the owner want it. On my repower/refit of Willy I took advantage of that and had my main heat exchanger mounted on a bulkhead and opted for a steel exhaust manifold. I chose the transmission, it's gear ratio and perhaps most importantly how much power to install. The re-fitter has choices, choices choices.

Your Kencraft boat looks longer than 25'
