    Just picked up a 31 Ocean Master with twin 250ox66 yamahas.
    The hull is an 85 and the motors were repowered in 02. 230 hours,very clean. The wiring was also just redone by the factory and looks very nice. The boat needs a little help but she's tough as a brick $ hithouse.
    I personally wasn't looking for a big center console, but the deal came thru my marina and lets just say I did very very well.

    That's awesome. Sounds like a comfortable boat.

    (I'm an excellent deckhand by the way.)

    Haha thanks guys. Took the boat out yesterday and man was it choppy as heck. About 3 foot confused chop whitecaps but guess what? I ran wide open over it and couldn't even feel it ha! Same some poor guys in a sterling getting beat to death and soaked. Felt good to not be that guy for once.
    I still ned to take a few pictures

    Congrats on the ride, just in time for season. Have always loved these hulls.

    Boat looks very clean.

    Been doing some little stuff here and there, mostly fixing or improving, so I can comfortably fish it untill I tear it apart and completely repaint etc probably next year.
    Every light on the boat was bad when I got it so I've been doing that, ran the new vhf antenna, making some flat panel molds for the new electronics etc.
