I've been reading around the Buzz and a lot of good information and a lot of knowledgeable people.
The Holiday is an 18. She's in really good condition ( I think). I sort of bought it on a whim... I'm still "asking for forgiveness" from my wife. My only concern now is that it's leaking a little, when it wasn't where it was in the water prior to moving it last week. I trailerd it for about 100 miles after it sat in the same slip for 10 years. and I'm hoping the move didn't cause any damage or that the bottom is in worse shape than I originally thought. The previous owner took extra great care of it...but the last few years he got sick and couldnt maintain as he did prior. the reason for my boat lift question is mainly: on weekends our dock can get pretty rough... and I don't want to worry about it when I'm not there. So I think for piece of mind, more than anything, I will lift it.
Anyway, it's a very beautiful boat. I'm calling it our Friday night cocktail boat ( we have a
26' Four Winns too). But I hope to enjoy for a long time and will like to spend some hobby
time with it. ( if the bottom is bad...maybe a lot of hobby time).
Thanks for the welcome.
