    The new owner has informed me that the new fuel tanks are in then the motors and everything else are on schedule to be put into Endless Seas.While the boat was out he had the bottom soda blasted,barrier coated and painted,new shaft seals and zincs. He also is having the name changed and some cockpit extras.I am glad he is taking good care of her as the new owner and I get to see her often in the warmer months.She is a great boat!

    Well Endless Seas has been re-launced with a new name and the new owner has made her almost new again. After owning her for almost 10 years you do become attached somewhat and I can honestly say it does my heart good to know she is well taken care of and I get to see her often.
    I'm not sure if we will carry the name over to our new Crownline E6XS day- boat but I'm thinking about it.The only issue would be that the 300 hp Yamaha blocks most of the transom if my name does go back on.....we shall see.

    Come on spring,

    Well the new owner had her splashed and took her out over the weekend and I shot a short video clip but i do not know how to out it on the site.
    The boat looked brand new and the new owner and myself am very pleased ( not bad for a 20 year old boat ).

    Not sure if this site can take videos, but if you have a google/gmail/youtube account Youtube is probably the best place to drop it and link it from there. Would love to see it running

    Since the site has changed we don't get the exposure on our boat that we use too. It seemed much easier to view the sites content before and viewing was effortless.
    Maybe it's me....

    So far we have been very lucky up here in Maryland with Hurricanes and flooding this season so far.Is this a normal storm season or ( more active than usual )?

    Well after 33K plus views I see we have made it to the bottom of the classified page.I think that's quite impressive for a boat we've sold two years ago. It won't be long and I'll see her going by our slip....what a GREAT boat!

    Thanks for viewing,
    Tom

    Well its been a little over 2 years since we sold Endless Seas and the gentleman that purchased her is doing a fantastic job of taking great care of her. She was just detailed the other day and when he took her out for a cruise Sunday morning and went by our slip I have to say again WOW what a great looking 21 year old boat. I was so happy I made my wife stop what she was doing and come take a look.
    I don't know if many of you feel the same as I do about past sold boats but this one does it for me. I guess having her for nine years says a lot about comfort and enjoyment.

    Hope you all have a great boating season,
    Tommy

    You guys are short timers........!

    We were about ready to order a new 370EC wide body when the dealer took my 450 on trade for a new 540DA. We spent 20 minutes on the boat when the sales manager pitched me the keys and said “go run her and see me when you get back.” Two hours later we owned a 9 month old 450 with 70 hours on the engines...........and that was 20 years ago and we love her as much today as we did that day we first ran her in October, 1997.

    That explains all the answers to questions about the older 450s. They are great boats, All of our cruiser buddy's migrate to our boat to hang out and take the leisurely cruise on the lake. To get a 450 almost new and still have it is a testament on how great they are. We wouldn't trade ours for anything we have seen on the lake.

    Tommy, Just read all of the posts on your former 450. Have had conversations with Frank ob this site as well. Definitely in the market for 450. Would you happen to know if the couple you sold it to would be interested in selling? perhaps they have two foot itis ..
    Thanks,
    Bob
