The odd part is, I think I may be the new owner of the subject boat in this thread. At least I bought it from a "Cory" in Destin a few weeks ago. It's a 23' Watkins. How many "Corys" in Destin could there be with a 23' Watkins! LoL!
So to continue with the discussion, the refit is going just fine lol!
Well, sorta fine. I really haven't had much time to fiddle with it since I bought it. I hope that will change over the next few weeks though. I have a number of minor projects on my list that I'd like to complete before I start using the boat regularly. And some major projects for when some money falls out of the sky and into my lap.
In the time I've spent with her though, I've found no surprises. And I too am glad I bought her and glad to have her.
I hope we can stay in touch and possibly get in touch with other W23 owners as well. It's always good to swap stories and tips with fellow Watkins owners.
