    I bought my 270 in early January in Phoenix. I live in Iowa and have kept the boat with a friend and at the Marina on Lake Pleasant. The staff at the Marina has been great and have earned all my update and maintenance work. I am excited because all of my boat experience has been in fishing boats. Time to get into the lifestyle and use the fishing boat for what it is made for:)

    Nice ...
    Welcome to CSR
    I've gone back and forth from cruisers to bass boats for a while now - Not sure that I'll do it again but they each have their place.

    Does anyone know where I can find the sliding doors to the cabinet above the burner and sink? I have provided a picture of it before it busted. I was thinking about a netting if I can’t get the sliding doors replaced? I’m all ears on ideas or could leave open but think items would fall while underway. Thanks

    Sorry I disagree. Fishing is a good day of boating, spoiled.
    I will never purposely bring a floppy dying fish in my boat.

    I don’t always fish.... but when I do.... I stop and have a Dos Equis. :)
    I think I am fished out... I haven’t seriously fished in years... The boat to us is a place to do nothing, relax, entertain and when we get bored of that that .. go explore and do the same thing there.... so far that plan is working.

    Actually used to Salmon fish every weekend when I lived in Seattle. I liked catching fish....I hated waiting to catch fish. I then realized I enjoyed boating more than fishing. Haven't wet a line in 40 years and have no plans to do so.
