Back again...
Said I wanted a Flat Deck 27 when the Hawk 40 went away. 5 years later, I brought one home. Supposedly a 2 owner boat. Doesn't matter, pretty clean and ready for updates. Plans are TBD as it runs okay as is.

Interior is useable but original. I doubt the boat stays together long. I want to set it up with low buckets and console. The dash is pretty cool for its day, hate to cut that up too early. Needs a windshield and I would really like to find an affordable frameless option.

Likely go with a high bravo and 500-600hp. The idea of a thumper and SSM V sounds wildly fun. We'll see how the parts availability and $$ mindset evolves.

Research continues...

It was a weird deal. It needs work but runs. I had watched it for a year or 2 as well as the other that was on CL now and then in Baytown. Both had difficult to contact owners.

I saw that one too. The add disappeared and I drove storage units in the area and found it. Talked to seller through help of storage owner. That one was pretty rough, owner was away on long vacation (jail) and GF was selling the boat.

Hey Matt! Good to see you back in the game. Very cool boat you found. Keep the updates coming. You have an engine in mind? With your bank account building for the last 5 years, Im sure this is going to be a cool ride!
