Time to Recondition my 1996 189 Input/Feedback Greatly Appreciated
Has anybody here had their boat reconditioned by Frank at the factory or purchased a pre-owned factory reconditioned boat from Frank. If so I'd be interested in your overall experience, feedback, and work performed. Pics would be great too. No intentions of having it done elsewhere-just curious/excited. Hear nothing other than amazing compliments of Franks character, integrity, and devoted passion to Egret.
I'd also be more than happy to provide any feedback/recommendations/data about the 189. Fished this boat for 16 years all over South Florida including extreme weather conditions and terrain. Chokoloskee to Flamingo, Biscayne Bay, Upper & Lower Florida Keys, Marquesas, and offshore reef/wrecks,trolling for Dolphin/kite fishing for sailfish, and quite a few lobster diving trips. Many a trips from Islamorada to Flamingo and up to to Harney River/Highland Beach and back to Islamorada. Snook, reds, permit, bonefish ,tarpon. Fly fishing, poling, and plenty of live bait fishing. On my 2nd engine & trailer & spent lot of $$/hours/time dialing boat in through trial and error over the years.(props,tabs,replaced quite a few parts on boat,push poles,batteries/onboard chargers,transducers,trolling motors,baitwell pumps, etc.) Old or new it's still the same hull/performance. Happy to help/share experiences.
