What kind of bigger boat are you looking for? I’m considering trading my Parker 1801cc for a skiff.
A bigger skiff…18 foot class…with 70-90 HP….maybe marquesa, Evo, HPXV,…wife really likes the higher gunnels on the Evo
but trying not to go the bay boat route if possible for easier garage storage. 18 HPXV is about as big as my garage may store. I have a 22X24 garage and built lumber shelving which brought it back down to about standard garage Sq. Footage

Can’t believe this hasn’t sold yet
I hear ya brother!….numerous calls from folks asking lead-on questions that are CLEARLY so they can turn and get a quote from Drake to compare prices….I’m not the builder and ur not sneaky people, it’s obvious 🤣…I can only answer questions about this boat, not a new build…that is why people feel the need to say “serious inquiries only” when we all know it doesn’t change the folks willing to waste your time at their esteem…this ones mint, its WELL under what it would cost to build….and you don’t have to wait a year…for something they’re not building anymore either….somebody’s gonna come through soon, I can feel it…(Stoic look intensifies) 😃

What power tech prop are you running with that DF30? I have a similar set up but motor has a lot of chatter with the REB3 power tech

Hey sir! …im running the REB3 blade 11 pitch because it is a perfect match to balance out the stock aluminum prop’s 12 pitch. Mine does not chatter. I ensured to torque it to between the 18-22 ft lbs called for in the maintenance manual and no issues whatsoever.
