very nice boat.
I believe the fuel capacity of the main tank is 92 gallons. Does this boat have the auxiliary tank as well?

I have that model and it is better with just the main tank. Too heavy with the auxiliary tank.
Very very tricked out boat.....
Looks like impeccable condition.....

Yes, the gas tank is 92 gal, updated info, thanks. The bow thruster was installed by previous owner. He was a well off elderly gentleman that ran a local sailing club. He stated that his friends would want to go out in the boat, but would not help him dock, so installed it to help himself. It does come in handy. I can deliver my wife tight to the dock every time, and she just easily steps off. Makes her happier.

If the Seller is in St Pete, I'll guess that the shots were upstream in either Crystal River, Homasassa, or that river near Inglis. (Not the unfinished Cross-Fla Barge Canal.) Some of those rivers are really clear away from the Gulf.

Boat does look good. I'll bet that thruster really moves it around....

Probably so. I see his location is Tampa Bay, has to be one of the springs around there. We didn't make it to the springs this past summer. We had planned to go up to Three Sisters but never made it.

Great looking boat!! I have a 2003 228 and would love to put a cockpit bimini on it like you have for the wife and kids. Can you share where it was purchased (and ballpark on cost) if you know ? Thx.

Says on Craigslist that it's sold...? Or at least it did the other day when I looked.
