    My name is Joseph Allbritton. I am finishing up at Clemson right now (5.5yrs!) and as soon as I can get back home and start working again, I'm looking into getting into a used CC25 or 28 with my father and brother. All dad has said is he will not get one with gas, he wants diesel, but i think we could go either way. I just wanted to introduce myself and I'll be reading ya'lls posts and putting together some ideas on what kind of things to look for in a used 25 (i think over the 2.

    Feel free to let me know how things work over here on

    We don't allow Clemson grads to ride on Carolina Classics!

    Just kidding (I'm a USC grad myself).

    I personally don't see a problem with gas unless you are going to use the boat A LOT! Otherwise, the much cheaper price of a gas powered CC (especially the 28's) compared to the diesel will cover thousands of gallons of gas.

      I chose to go with the gas motors over the diesels in the 28 because of the price difference. There is about 30k in price difference between a diesel boat and a gas boat in the same age range. My situation is the exact same. I am graduating from college and moving back home and we got our boat in November. it is a 28 with twin 502 volvo's and my dad was all about a diesel boat until he saw the price difference then he started to want a gas boat for some reason. Plus my boat with the gas motors will FLY. I can get almost 50 mph out of a 15,000 lbs boat.

        I would research two things when considering gas -vs- diesel. Resale and cost of maintenance.

        Is this the same Z71 that posts on

              Not at All

              I'm not a judgemental person from a web site. Just like to familiarize myself with the folks who fish in Charleston's waters. I would like to find more CC people in SC so we might be able to put on a small CC tournament.

              Good luck on your 28' If you can spring the extra cash you can't beat diesel power!

                yeah, alright jobsite, figured that is what you were getting at. i dont know that many people with cc's but if you are ever in need of someone to test ride your boat, just let me know!

                i do know that some guy out of hh caught a blue already at edisto banks on acarolina classic.
