I don't have a Martinique, mine is the cheaper Excel version, the 23 SE. I believe it is basically the same, minus the rosewood dash. I am sure someone will let me know if there are other differences. Overall, I really like the boat.
Likes: Alot of features in a compact trailerable boat. Pretty economical, easy to clean, rides and handles really nice. Great for weekend trips to Solomons Island.
Dislikes: I have a hard time getting on plane with several people, especially if any adult is in the stern seat (Which is actually hanging over the transom). I think trim tabs might help. Bow cleat to forward to allow adding a windlass without relocating it. No ventilation in the head.
I bought this boat as a repo, so I did not get any literature. If anyone has a wiring diagram, or information on adding a windlass, I would be very happy to pay the postage for a copy.
