RE: Nike boats and other toys.

Fred,Chris and I went to Juneau and back w our 25' Albin and think it's one of the best boats ever made. Very turn key and very efficient. Much more sea worthy than C-Dorys, Tollys and Sea Sports. The boat itself is only 2 tons disp so it is easy to trailer. Being a member of the Albin club I can probably locate other Albins to look at as well.

RE: Nike boats and other toys.

The 25Albin looks quire seaworthy , but for this trip a much quicker boat will be needed.

Weight is not really a large consideration as the bus has the power and gearing , the trailers have brakes frequently on all 6 wheels.

It is an adventure , mostly in trying to locate an example of the mostly west coast built boats here on the east coast.

If push comes to shove we will simply drive out West , and do a boat purchasing run.

RE: Nike boats and other toys.

I am not saying this to be insulting or anything... but there are a lot of Searays out there for a good price and some of them have looks and space.* Plus the previous owner(s), most likely got all the bugs out.

Some of the older models late 70's early 80's were quite sharp and Seaworthy.

Heck I had a 77 24' command bridge (Searay)* that we use to boat from Seattle to Campbell river every summer for three years (2 adults 1 kid and a Springer).*

Did us well.

RE: Nike boats and other toys.

Searays are on the list ,with Bayliner, cheap boat price , easier to get a low cost round trip.

And there should be a few of them here on the East coast.

Thanks for the heads up.
