Crownline 266

Now that we will be living at our Lake home for the summer we need a boat on the lift.  We sold our last boat 4 years ago as we weren't there enough to use it much.   I searched on-line while in London and found this 2000, 266 Crownline with only 106 total hours on it, in Sacramento California.  I flew into Sacramento this spring and did a test run on Folsom lake.  A full mechanical check sorted our a few issues so then I bought it.  We needed a boat that was big enough to overnight on but would still work fine for day use, fishing and skiing etc.  A covered bow and a plenty of  power is important on this lake where rough weather can happen on any day.  This boat is 26 ft long with a big block motor and weights 4700 lbs dry.  The fuel tank is 75 gallons so with a few people and gear this will be all our 6,000 pound lift can handle.  Our garage is deep enough to store this inside during the winter months.  Skimpy bikini's get free rides.
