    Lars,

    Very interesting and yes that is the same boat! The owner is certainly representing it as a Howard. How can you tell that it is a Crusader or did you ask him for a HIN? Funny that when I first saw the photo and then the side windows I did for a minute wonder as I had never seen Howard do that.

    Don't forget to let me know if you find out anything on my 1987 Warlock. I tried to engage the owner of WPM and get some background but he did not want to be bothered short of saying that the hull was a verified factory build.

    PM me your email if you would

    Lars,
    That Howard deserves some current photos, between all the boats on this thread I can't figure out which one is actually for sale. One thing is for sure, a Howard 23 Offshore is a stealth hull and with that delta pad it is very efficient. Post up some high res current photos. This hull might be the last one out there of the (12) that were produced.

    1994 Howard 23 Offshore.

    My Buddie Steve's 23 Offshore is one of the last ones made of this rare Howard Custom Boat model. The 1989 that just sold is almost identical to this one in the color scheme, engine, drive etc. Most of these 12 boats made are still out there. An all white one sold 4-5 years ago in Washington State and I believe it was a 1992. Then Tony on Long Island has got the twin outboard and another two outboards are supposed to have been made. I also looked at the original brochure boat and probably the first one made, when it came up for sale about 6-7 years ago, next door to Steve in Valencia CA, but it's in a pinkish main gel color, another 5-6 accent colors and the boat was quite faded and a little worned out, so I passed on it. Gene the owner of Howard had a couple made for himself with serious power, but the boat is too narrow at 6' to handle it and the hull mold was never totally straight, (they bought it from Crusader). He said it's better as a cruiser running 50-70mph and after spending a little time in this one I really tend to agree. A 28' Bullet is the way to go for tripple digits, but then we're talking quite a bit more $$$.

    Here is a 23' Warlock for sale. He sent me some pictures and the boat looks nice and price seems reasonable.

    Your hijacking someones ad for a Howard Offshore to push a Warlock?

    Not a problem if you know he's sold the Howard, but I don't see a posting saying he has.

    I'd be pissed if this was my thread.
    Why is faster never fast enough.

    I apologize...

    Sorry fellows, I dropped the ball on this thread. My friend Steve's Howard 23 Offshore sold a few months ago and is now back East.
