Hey guys,

I guess I'm in the club. I've been looking for a Classic 18 for a while and just bought this one today. Its a 2004. Need to find a trailer somewhere down here in Tampa. Ultimately am going to haul it up to our cabin inNorthern Wisconsin.

Its a saltwater boat but was really well taken care of. Taking it out for a little spin this afternoon.

Congratulations and Welcome!

What a great looking boat. I'm sure many will jump in with trailer suggestions.

Where in Wisconsin? I used to boat over in Wisconsin when I lived in Rockford, IL.

We are on LCO near Hayward. Its a 5000 acre lake and is perfect for this boat.

That's a beautiful boat. Good luck with it. The drive tilt is very high compared to mine.

Gorgeous, congrats! Great color scheme. (Drop it in Kentucky and you can run it at AOTH in May before northern WI thaws out. ;) ) -Mike

there's also a Donzi event outside Chattanooga in Mid-June, Fathers Day week/weekend, you go within a mile of the place on I-24 towing north anyway :cool:

That is a really nice color combination. Congratulations on the purchase. Bill

You'll really appreciate a trailer and the utility it brings.

Congratulations on your new Classic 18. Looks like a beauty. Just bought my 18 last Fall and love it. Enjoy the ride.

Beautiful boat! I can recommend Ace Trailers in the Tampa / Gibsonton area. I got a great deal from them on an aluminum tandem trailer. They make single axle trailers as well.

CONGRATS...love the colors!

Very nice!!!! Try to stick with aluminum, a little more $$ but last way longer and much better towing.

Wow. That is gorgeous. Congrats

Beautiful boat! I grew up on Lake Hayward and have spent a bunch of time on Grindstone, LCO, and the Chippewa Flowage. Love that area. We moved down south to LaCrosse when I was in middle school to get away from the cold weather...

That 18 will be perfect for cruising around up there in the nort' country!
