Keytime, did you get any more info about this boat? Did it turn out to be my buddy's old boat based on the info I gave you?

Just curious!

I didn't find out, but I just sent a note to them, so we'll see. They said the previous owner put the Bravo 3 on, so it looks like it's not. I'll let ya know as soon as I find out.

If this boat had a 24* dead rise and better rough water ride, I think it would make a nice first boat. But the LOTO main channel weekends might be a bit too rough.

A Bravo III really isn't going to help much with either of those problems. Trim tabs would have been a better solution. Good thing is a Bravo I can easily be bolted back on.

What kind of cost to convert back to Bravo I if desired?

Does a boat like that need the big k-planes type of tabs?

From the owner...

"This boat was previously owned by James Gillpatrick. Apparently, he goes by Tony. He owns Hurricane Hydraulics at the Lake of the Ozarks. He said he bought the boat when it was a year old and we purchased from him at the beginning of this year. I don't know if it was called the "captain". It does not appear to have ever had a name on the back of the boat. It does have a full cover...I don't know that I would classify it as a custom cover though. Let us know if you have any other questions."

I'm told now that the original owner was from Kansas.
