I have a 22 and really like it, but for traveling, the space and the head/shower of the 25 are very appealing to my wife and me.
I'd like a 25 with gray trim, a Wallas stove a single outboard with less than 600 hours and a trailer. Lastly I would like a boat to be close enough that the travel to get it would not add to many extra thousands to get it to my home in Portsmouth, VA.
Several months ago, a boat called RAMBLER came up for sale and that was the right boat, but unfortunately I was headed to Europe foe a month and could not work out the details. If you have a boat that my be coming up for sale in the next 6 months or so, please PM me.

Steve, I'll keep my open. I've seen C Dorys pop up in New England on Craigslist and not on C Brats (even 25s).

Btw, I wouldn't be too worried about the engine hours. If they're maintained well then at least you know that a higher hour boat was being used. As opposed to sitting for months on end and then having gas issues pop up.

Good to see your post Steve, and see that you are considering a new to you boat. Talking with you, I know how well you have maintained Osprey, so I know if you decide to sell your 22 footer, someone will be getting a very well maintained boat. Best of luck in your search.

Jason, I am not overly worried about hours, as I overhaul outboards for a hobby and can perform a very good survey, if offered a 25, regardless of the hours.

Jack, you are correct, I run OSPREY weekly and maintenance is always at the top of the operating list. I now have about 1300 hours on the boat and my Honda looks and runs like new.

Well, it looks like Christmas IS coming early...
Joan and I looked a boat this past Saturday and agreed to purchase it.
My birthday is next month, so I told Joan, just consider it an early gift :-]

Congratulations--you will find a lot more room in the 25, plus a bit better riding in the chop. The 100 gallon fuel capacity will also be nice. Gives the range well over 200 miles.

Dr. Bob,
Who said that I got a 25? Life and boating are all compromises.
Best regards,

Harvey,
Joan will let me have a ride occasionally and maybe travel with her, as she is not fond of washing, waxing or repairing...
I too am holding my breath, as I do not want to jinx myself, until the boat is in the H20, behind my home.

Very nice Steve & Joan! We definitely understand the desire for some additional comforts the 25 provides. When will you be taking possession? Enjoy your new boat!
