I've said it before, but since you asked, I can't resist...
I've had my 17 ft Anderson, the "Andale" since 1990...
Since then, I have bagged literally several tons of fish, thousands of lobster, and countless perfect surf days...
People scoff at its size, it is a glorified jetski, yet I have been as far as 75 miles offshore in the thing. It is stout, fast, reliable, and seaworthy. In it I have fished from the Mushroom to the Santa Lucia Bank. I have circumnavigated all of the offshore islands...Although some scoff at it's size, there is NEVER a day when someone doesn't come up and marvel at it's beauty.
I was on the verge of ordering the bigger newer model this year, I came to my senses, and realized that I loved the Andale too much to part with her...I had it as good as sold, to my prior boat partner...he would have been the only person to own the same boat twice (he of course also realizes what a gem she is).
When I die, I'm going to have a viking funeral on the thing...put my body on it, point it west, and have a flaming arrow shot into it...so when you see that westward trail of smoke, you know that both my, and the Andale's time has come....
1. Im glad its on a trailer to go where the fish are !!
2. I feel safer on the rubber ducky than on most other boats.
3. It runs almost on fumes 6.2 mpg at 28 mph.
4. It only needs 18in of water to float.
5. Has a range of 125 miles plus 5 gal cans at 30 miles per can.
6. Its pretty comfortable for a small boat.
7. Its the dryest center console boat ive seen .
8. Bad fishin for sharks and marlin though !!

The waterfront homes have gone WAY up just like everything else. Despite what you read in the newspaper about a slow market, there really aren't too many good deals out there. The lowest Huntington Harbour SFR waterfront which recently went into escrow was listed for $2.3 million.
Seems HH finally caught up with NB and Alamitos! For years I've said that HH was a bargain and a great place to find a waterfront home! Only drawback is that damn bridge and Military! Otherwise a great harbor with lot's to see and explore. Not much in bar's and restaurants for boaters to pull their boats up, but still a great harbor. At $2.3 as the floor, I think they finally caught up! Great thing about your business Scott, is that waterfront property will almost never loose value, and will always have a captive audience!
