Best of luck with her, she looks nice and clean (and let your games begin). What year is that motor? I had a 1987 18' Cobia Center Console with an '87 90HP Johnson, that thing ran great!

The size of a boat is inversely proportional to how much you will use it. Get the smallest one that will handle the waters you plan to sail. Then you will use it a lot.

she's getting docked at least for striper season. And actually after towing it 5 hours home I got pretty comfortable with it. Hoping to make a few short journeys with it.
