Price Drop: $19K OBO.

I've decided to put my Shadowcast 18 up for sale. I took delivery in October 2016 and rigged the boat over the next month. This has honestly been the best boat I've owned. I built it for fishing/camping the Glades and the Big Bend. The combination of shallow draft, shallow running (with the tunnel), range (100+ miles per tank) and length make it perfect for my style of fishing. It does surprisingly well in a chop for a skinny poling skiff. Performance is 25-26 MPH WOT with a cruise at 22-23 MPH getting ~10 MPG. The boat is a blast to drive either standing in the cockpit or on the back deck.

Nice skiff - i have one with a side console. Question, how did you get your simrad hooked up to get motor telemetry? I have same motor and same simrad and would like to do the same.

No crack. Just how Ankona lays down their caulk.

Motor telemetry requires N2K backbone and two harnesses. One is the 3NV761330 interface cable and the other is the 9999HN0869 engine to N2K backbone cable. Will run you about $150 total on for the Tohatsu harnesses if you already have the backbone.

BTW, boat is sold to a great new owner in Crystal River.

I would just buy the N2K starter kit (available everywhere). That will give you the hardware to get started (terminators, T's, etc.). After you have the starter kit, it's easy to build on the network with connections to your MFD, engine, trolling motor, etc.
