This was the first boat I owned....Needless to say it was a great experience 4 boats later..does she have a swing keel
? if so make sure the cable and the keel
is in good shape it can be a problem....I am not sure how many 25's were made with the swing keel, mine was a shoal draft
...but one of our friends had the swing and if he neglected it, it would be a problem.....the other thing is that if your running offshore
(coastal) be careful of weather
she is fairly tender
, and the small outboard is not much help in the lumpy stuff (make sure its a long shaft!!) we ran many times off fire island and had great times but make sure you are comfortable handling her in slightly heavier air and youll be great....
This was a GREAT boat for us at the time.....Good Luck...
