    New Bayliner owner 288CB

    We are picking up our 25th boat on Saturday, a 2003 288 with the 350 Mag and Bravo 3. Very excited about the purchase, not excited about the 400 mile trip in the rain. I don’t spend much time online, being a retired guy, but hopefully I can still contribute in some way. BTW, we don’t have 25 boats still, just 2. The other is my fully restored Skipjack 20 Open with tuna tower and geared for fishing.

      That’s a lotta boats! Welcome, and there’s bound to be some purchasing and selling advice in there somewhere. Drive carefully.

        Welcome Shoe!
        I have the same boat 2006 288 Classic 350mpi Bravo 3...and love it.
        Lots of experienced and smart boaters on this site to help you out with new boat.

        So glad you have owned 25 boats...helps calm my wife a bit. I'm also down to two....boats, not wives.

          Congrats!
          let me gues, SoCal?
          Skipjacks are legendary tuna boats down there. I’ve always wanted one, but up in the PNW you need an enclosed helm somewhere on the boat.

            So Cal yes, Fallbrook is San Diego area. I’ve had 4 Skipjacks, fantastic rough water fishing boats in the “open” model. The flybridges rock terribly with a narrow beam, so there’s a reason why you can find a hundred 24 flybridge for sale compared to the open.
