    1998 225 optimax. For sale soon

    Jack waldrop jr repowered his boat with a new 250 pro xs and his still healthy 225 optimax is about to be for sale. I will be changing all the fluids, the compressor belt and then I will mount it on my gambler for people to have a chance to see it run and confirm the motor is sound before buying it. If you are running mercury controls already I will install it for you. It will be a week or so before I get it ready. Just wanted to let everybody here get a heads up.

    I thought Waldrop was running a Skeeter w/ a Yamaha ? Maybe I'm just out of the loop because I don't fish anymore.

    Jack was tired of going slow so he now runs the bullet instead of that skeeter he had. I don't k ow much about skeeters but that purple and yellow one he ad was slow as molasses. He has always preferred the bullet for speed, ride and layout. But I don't think he has fished out of those new I class beauties. They may be slow but man, they are roomy and Purdy.

    They still have 2 skeeters with yamahas though. Jack senior and Mike have skeeters. Jack keeps threatening to buy a new skeeter to get in on that sweet skeeter real money.

    BLADED BULLET 187.JPGBLADED BULLET 183.JPGBLADED BULLET 181.JPGI fished out of a 20i w/ a 250 hpdi and it was a great fishing boat but I did not like the low to mid range porpoising or the slow hole shot. Can't beat the room and storage but the lids were noisy and creaked when stepped on. Currently, I'm fishing out of a 1997 20xd Bullet and will say that it fishes well , however it get blown around on the water when the wind is blowing which is my only complaint. The hole shot and high cruising speed makes up for it and it's a blast to drive.

    ^^ I thought the squeekie lid thing was just because I'm a fatass
    The holes hot does suck a little, but the top end speed is more than I can handle
    I love the POS. I just wish YOU didn't put a big scratch in it when you had it

    Scratch ? Did we scratch it here at the shop ? The boat does haul the mail on the big end like and rides like a Caddy for sure. Please advise on the scratch.

    NO, your guys had nothing to do with it, but I'd sure like to blame it on someone else
    I hate to say it, but it's got a big-ol scratch on one side
