30' knife
6BTA Cummins (370 hp) in excellent condition with about 3000 hours. It was maintained very meticulously by its previous owner who I've fish with regularly. It was in another knife, so you know it wasn't in a bigger boat getting over worked.
Seaboard marine water pump and fuel cooler delete recently installed
ZF 80-1A Sraight shaft trans with 0 hours already bolted up to the motor
Trolling valve already installed on trans
New in box marol 63a steering actuator
Airmar R109LM thru hull transducer installed by PF Marine(2000 watt chirp with low and medium frequency, i could motor across the channel to the banks and never lose sight of the bottom)
Garmin GSD26 black box for the transducer
12" garmin plotter
PF Marine custom saddle fiberglass fuel tanks 68 gallons each built 8 years ago, new deck over the tanks was installed at the same time. Tanks are sloped back towards the pick up (parallel with the deck) so you don't suck air when the boat slows down and settles level when the fuel level is low.
Morad cb antenna
Shakespeare galaxy 2 piece vhf antenna
Shakespeare am/fm antenna
Cabin completely rebuilt with treated marine ply over the past 2 years. All major/structural boards were glassed independently so if water or termites ever get in due to damage, it's impossible for the problem to migrate throughout the structure. Everything is isolated, so if it happens, you only need to address that one small area. Lots of  builders install all the wood and then glass everything at one time to save time and money. I didn't gelcoat anything yet so you can see for yourself that we did this the best way possible.
New visor/eye brow made but not installed yet. This part is over built as well, the heaviest guys will be able to jump on it and be fine.
You can have the old cb, vhf, and stereo if you want

Trailer is in good condition. The following have been done recently (by universal and hawaii spring supply) and not touched salt water yet:
Both axels
Bearings and races
Drive on bow catch
Sliding tongue with rollers so it doesn't require any grease

Trailer has electric over hydraulic brakes that work but are not new. Title is in storage, but no back taxes are due and its easy to take it out of storage before the sale.

The original shaft, strut, propeller, and rudder are still installed. I have the bridge cap which will come with the boat, but it's not installed.

$60k obo. Willing to trade for something smaller (18-20 feet with an outboard) that's nice, new, and turn key. I've killed a lot of fish with this boat before we started the rebuild but, i don't have the time to finish it and I want something that's ready to go with minimal work.
