I am pretty sure East Coast B's is for sale, and it is in great shape.

Maybe you should do some research instead of spouting hearsay...

...follow the link and learn. XL Boatpanel stringers, deck, & transom... guaranteed rot free for life. Drop down bolsters are molded plastic. Largest cabin it it's class. And if it can handle the 4' chop at LOTO on the holiday's, it will take 4'rs anywhere.

Ok let me say this, for the money you are going to get a good boat that can handle rough water conditions. What I call rough water conditions is 0-6’ chop. I have an older 1990 290 that is in fair condition. I have replaced the sun pad and a 24”-24” portion of the floor and have spider cracks in the gel coat around the windshield and swim deck. But!! Nothing more than any other boat built around the same time and used in the same conditions. Baha boats make a wide variety of salt water fishing boats that work great and hold their own compared to more expensive boats, so yes they know what they are doing. Yes they use wood but so do most other manufactures that try to keep cost down for the buyer. What you are looking at is a 60mph boat that will last a long time if taken care of and with its added weight provides a smoother ride in rough waters. PS if you want a real OFFSHORE BOAT then 26’-30’ is not an option so don’t judge them in a category they aren’t even in to begin with.
