Looking for a used XF20

Post by Cracker Larry » Tue Feb 02, 2016 8:56 pm

I've got a friend and fishing guide in Hilton Head SC who is looking for a used XF20 in good condition. He contacted me about building him one, but I just don't have it in me to build it. If anyone has any leads on one please let me know, or contact Capt. Dan Utley, Fishin' Coach Charters. http://www.fishincoach.com/

Thanks

The XF20 is a mean boat to build and fair. I would build a basic hull to primer if someone twisted my arm really hard :wink:

Richard, the budget sure wasn't high enough for me to build it from scratch. He's on a used boat budget :wink:

I just talked to Captain Adam Valle. The black boat from hell is not for sale. That almost rhymes :P

My red boat is not for sale either.

Wish I could do it, but shipping back and forward materials and boat would get ridiculous expensive :(

If he is still looking, mine is going up for sale. Moving to Croatia to build my sailing catamaran sometime this year.
