I actually had to look up where Montague is located. That is really a sweet setup with the inland lake so close to Lake Michigan. Will send PM. CWW, thank you for your reassurance! I guess without adding up the numbers all I can say is that I truly love her so good deal. If Jim has 20 years on his bottom job, sounds good to me. We do not plan on anymore hard travel, we had enough bringing her north. Foresee only Great Lakes from here, mostly Superior. But then who knows... if any of you get up here, please send me a PM. Would love to meet with like minded folks.

But as stated in the description, the starboard is "hydra locked". I would be grateful for a reference to a good DD old timer in that area. I welcome all comments.
    If it's the boat I think it is, it was at MethHead Marina in North Ft Myers until Hurricane Ian, when it was the only boat in that marina that didn't sink. The boat I saw was sitting with wing doors open to the weather, and was about 40 yards from the Bus 41 NB bridge at that facility. After the hurricane, once the boat that sank blocking it in was pulled out of the way, it was towed out under cover of darkness, and i don't know where it wound up. But in all fairness, please be very skeptical of a 53' or 58' in Fort Myers/Punta Gorda. I am still in Ft Myers if you need someone to do a drive-by. Im just a month past second knee replacement so not able to go bilge-crawling yet.
