    Re: Seafarer Appreciation thread

    I very nearly bought a Seafarer, and spent my time wishing they would introduce a boat to compete with the Cruisecraft 685 Outsider feature wise more closely. The Vagabond came soooo close. But I guess it's not a huge market at that size, and there are a few boats there already...

    I also got my back up when a dealer (to remain nameless) told me I was stupid to want to put a Verado on a Seafarer. Ran the Merc down, and gave me Salesmanspeak responses every time I asked about their preferred power plant - you guessed it, E-TEC!

    Re: Seafarer Appreciation thread

    Been meaning to post this pics for a while...finally got to it. My old Vag - built like a brick shitter. Since photos I have got rid of the light board and welded on outriggers to the trailer with submersalights. Love the old girl. Goes like a wounded cat despite the 21 degree V and a 115 Yammy.

    Hey Chimo, Sorry misled you 17 pitch props . I spoke to you about them a while ago. I have the old 21's cleaned and ready to sell. I dropped to 17s and find them more suitable to my needs. Motor sometime fouls when you idle or putt around for fish and then kill the motor for 15 mins and try to fire up again. Sometimes they wont fire up on first turn. No big deal though.

    My Seafarer VC.

    I've owned this boat for over 16 years. The transom has been replaced and I've recently had new steering cables, helm etc put in.

    Should be good for another 20 years.

    I can't see myself ever parting with my VC, unbeatable in it's size imo.

    GO THE CRUISER UTES!

    ....OH WHAT A FEELING!

    Re: Seafarer Appreciation thread

    Hey Guys,

    I too joined the Seafarer Club recently.

    One of the reasons I invested in a Seafarer is because I used to work for them in the period my boat was built. I know exactly how well they are built and finished, and had no hesitation when this one popped up for the right price. It will last for a very long time with simple routine maintenance. This boat now looks like the day it rolled out of the factory, ten years on.

    One thing I have noted is just how dry the 6.0 Victory is. It is by far the driest 6.0m boat I have ever been in, and I have owned and been in a lot of them. The great soft ride is another huge attraction.

    Regards

    Darren
