      Sailor,

      I'm not sure how to take this -- but I'm guessing it's a [88]

      The transom on that boat clearly has some serious problems -- perhaps from all that weight? [] I just hope the purchaser has a portable GPS so he can get the numbers when it sinks! []

          AAAHHHHHH, good ole 'LA---where we need at least a 150 on a 15' flat! Not uncommon to see overpowered boats here.

            How do you handle insurance? Heck the big boats from over here have to get an insurance rider to go West of Mobile bay to MS and LA. You guys must do some real bad stuff over there!!! [][]

              Goog Question! My guess would be that most coon asses(ie. cajuns) don't carry insurance on their flat boats. Where do the powerboaters get insured?

                  I don't recall, but it's funny you mention that. I was cruising on boattrader the other day and noticed a couple of Mako's I saw for sale last year and one that has been for sale for three years due to the very high price.

                    Just for the record that boat is on the north shore across the lake from New Orleans, There ain't no cajuns up there just rednecks.

                      Oh crap! Now there are 3 Houma boys (that I know of) here. It was funny that JustUs and I went to the same highschool and had some of the same teachers like 20 years apart! Not to mention he has family members who are patients in our office! Small world.

                      The people on the Northshore are a mixed breed.. They want to think that they are cajuns, but they have influence from New Orleans as well as Picayune... Its a real strange breed. But in 5 years of being a transplant in Slidell, I've yet to come across someone who has dat accent. And none of them can tell the difference between the accent of a South Terrebonne coon ass and a South Lafourche coon ass. I can.[]

                      I have seen that boat on Boattrader for a while now. We did talk about it here a while back. I also saw it in person about 3.5 years ago when I was in the Mandeville area shopping for a new truck... I didn't get out of the truck though, just did a drive by. The hull looked okay (gelcoat at least).

                      I'm sure it is overpowered and over priced as well. Those motors are ancient. Its probably got transom problems to boot from the weight of those twins. You can see its got a aluminum plate on the transom... Coon ass band-aid for a screwed transom.

                      I looked at an old Mako 224 in Dulac a few years back... It had a big ass plate across the transom, I said no thanks. No telling how long the transom had been rotten, but long enough to be noticible to put a plate. No telling how bad everything else was.

                      I did see a 23 Seacraft a few years back with twin 250 Mercs... Bet that was a fun ride.

                      Insurance... No telling. My dads Whaler has been over powered for 10 years now. He's filed several insurance claims too... Never a problem. But hes never been involved in an accident either. I'm of the opinion... its your boat, do what you want. Its like these guys who put hopped up motors and nitrous in their cars and shit. What can you do about it?

                        Accents?? Even been to Baltimore Ed? []

                        If you ever visit, you'd better brush up on your "Bawalamerese" first.

                          S.T. graduate myself. and you're right about the accent. every one of these city slickers believes anyone with a coon ass accent is from 'down the bayou'. go figure. lol

                            What year did you graduate from ST? I grew up about 2 miles up the road from ST.
