Yes, but we have never attempted to remove, so I can't tell you how labor intensive it might be.

Nice boat and like the 2nd console. I am in Keller TX. Any issues with motor and what maintenance done. Also, sorry but what does this mean HydroTech Phase I in 2017, worked 25m? Are there any dings/gouges in gel coat. Any stress cracks around transom?

I am a cash buyer btw.

HydroTech builds aftermarket kits for motors in “phases” based on how much extra performance is desired from the motor. The Phase I added a little more responsiveness throughout the powerband. The 25m is a Yamaha prop. It’s been balanced to remove any imperfections in how it’s supposed to perform. The gel coat is in great condition and there are zero issues with the transom. This is a composite transom Champion.

And HydroTech is THE place to have a Yammy worked on or improved performance-wise. They are EXPERTS. Nicely done. I bet this thing is a beast.

Pretty much what I would expect from a boat like that. Those clean Champs are gold!

darn it, I have been looking for a clean 188 for the past year. I bought a 187 last year just so I could fish, but a 188 will be my last boat. Short, nimble and fast with a dry hull.
