Buddies and i are looking for a great lakes diver boat for both tending and hunting out of without using layout boat. Have an opportunity to pickup both below boats. 1979 starcraft mariner 21’ CC with 88 mercury black max 200 hanging on it. Has a custom built offshore transom. Diamond plated flooring. ——or——- 2008 Seaway Skiff 19’ that is gutted and would be a rebuild project. Obviously there is a price difference of the two due to motor right off the bat but if i went with the starcraft i would probably replace the motor right away. Not sure im comfortable with going well offshore with a 19 year old outboard. Thoughts, comments, suggestions, opinions on which boat would perform the best all while taking the “captain factor” out of the conversation.
