Just wanted to introduce myself. I purchased a 2005 43 Ocean in early May. She has the 500 hp Yanmars. She had 630 hours on her when I purchased. The prior owner went ahead and did a complete 1000 hr service before I looked at it. So far I absolutely love her. She's fast. We see anywhere from 24-28 knot cruise. Decent head sea ride Great on the hook or drifting Does not like a following sea. But I am learning how to tab her right, and this is improving The boat is used almost 100% for offshore fishing here in New Jersey We have made about 10 trips offshore already. Every single one being successful. I have had a few minor hiccups, but nothing out of the ordinary. So far I am extremely pleased with my choice. I shopped for this boat for 2 years. When I saw her I knew she was the one. I'm gonna try and post some pics in the next few days. Regards Chot55 (Chris) 2005 43 Ocean "REAPER" 2017 18 Maycraft CC "Lil Reaper"
