2000 18.5 Maverick Master Angler

Recommended Posts

Well, I think it's time to start a thread on my new addition.  A little history here - I had a beautiful 1987 18.5 MA that I absolutely loved when a bunch of jerks from this forum (you know who you are, Nagjuice, CG Ryan, and the rest of you trouble makers) decided I needed an upgrade.  CG posted this one, and well, the rest is history:

So, within a week, I had two 18.5 Master Anglers in my driveway.

After discovering an issue with the 87's engine mounts, I sold her and am now down to one MA.

To date, here are the upgrades/work done on the boat:

Oh man, I am really flattered.  Unfortunately, this boat has it's claws deep in me.  I absolutely love this boat and nowhere near ready to part with her.  I do think you could convince Nagjuice to sell his 2005, though.  He just cant' seem to let go of his 21' MA fantasies.  His isn't for sale, but I suspect if you bug him enough and he can find a 21, he'd sell.
