We looked at one of these (also known as the E 30+) in our last hunt. We liked a lot about it.. the frac rig, Ericson quality, etc. That particular one, recently repowered, was way over-priced and in the end we went for something a little bigger for less money..
The only caution I'd have: Since the standard keel was 5.8 feet, and the official shoal keel 4 feet - I'd be concerned about just exactly how this one was "modded" to 4'11".
