  • Pequot

    Sorry, this isn't a Mako question, but I know we have some seacraft guys on here. I saw this boat before I found my Mako and wondered if anyone had some opinions on this boat. I was told it came out of a seacraft mold and was made for commercial use. It had no stringers, the entire hull was filled with foam, The transom was solid fiberglass, no core! I guess it was called a peguot (sp?), made in CT. Anyone ever hear of it? At the time he wanted $4200, new powerhead, w/o a trailer. I always question buying a knockoff, but I love the seacraft lines and it was overbuilt for commerial use, so I always think of this boat. I think resale would have been tough. Any thoughts?

    No stringers? [:u][:u] I can't believe that foam is rigid enough.

      I would imagine if it has anything to do with "Pequot" it came out of the Southport/Fairfield/Westport area. I only say that because Pequot Yacht Club is in Southport.

        A friend of mine was selling his last spring and I came close to buying it from him for cheap. He said it rode ok but was a little wet. He needed something a little smoother for the family. I looked for information on'em and could not find much either. I was told was that they were made for inner-coastal commercial crabing, clamming etc. The one thing I did notice was an abundance of stress cracks all around, more than the average, especially on transom and all the hatches. They are extrememly heavy and need a lot of power to get them going.

        My friend had his forsale for over a year at $4200 w/o a trailer. It came with one running, late 80's(i think) 250 rude and an extra for parts. I think he only ended up getting $2500.

          Hdavis, was your friend selling his boat out of Quincy, MA? It definately felt like a heavy boat. I was concerned that it couldn't really get up on plane when we went for a sea trial.

          Yeah Wilson, that's what I was told, I guess the boat was a giant foam filled stringer????

            He was out of Falmouth, MA...

            One thing he said was that he didn't get a lot of speed, but it sure ate up a whole lot of fuel.

              The only thing I can tell you is that it wasn't pulled from any SeaCraft mold....that's for sure. The lines are totally different and there no reverse chine at the bow.

                Years ago (in the early '80) the moonies (followers of the revern sun young moon) were using a Seacraft look alike knock off for there people to go out after the giant bluefin tuna off Bock Island, RI and Montauk, NY. These boats were also made by the cult (or whatever they are called) I was told in large numbers somelace in Mass I think. We would see them out there all grouped together - 10 to 20 at a time and each boat had a large number painted on each side as an identifer to each other. I never got close enough to the boats to see what the inside was like, but it did look a little like a Seacraft from a distance. Don't know what happened to all these boats but maybe this is one of them??

                  hdavis, this must be your friends then. I just remember going through Quincy to get there. I wondered if all that foam was wet, cuz the floor was soft, so water had to of gotten to it, maybe that's why it was soooo heavy and barely planed?

                    Were the "moonies" the same people that made that stretched out Mako that was in another post about a couple months ago?

                        mrdelgado,

                        My friend's old boat was dark blue with TEE-TIME in huge letters along the side. It also was a simple center console.

                        In general, they are heavy, could easily have water in the foam, but he always said how hard it was to launch. Aparently, quite a few of these have been retrofitted as pumpout boats in area boatyards.
