230 LXF from Tidewater Packs A Punch in a Small Package

By Ted Lund

Are you looking for a family-friendly center console that’s got the luxury of a larger boat in a smaller package? Then look no further than the 230 LXF from Tidewater.

The 23-foot, center console has the same features as the rest its large LXF brothers, including comfortable full upholstery, stainless steel cup holders. And a newly-designed console with glove box and footrest includes catch-all trays in front and on top is sure to be a hit with families always looking to store things.


Enjoy your day at the lake or at the shore with 230 LXF’s new walkthrough transom door, with large rear and bow seating all combined in a diminutive, luxurious and refined center console.

The 230 LXF is rated for a single 300-horspower engine, but with a 200-horsepower Yamaha F200XB and 95 gallons of onboard capacity, will cruise at 221/2 MPH while burning 5 GPH. Bump it up to 6000 RPM and you have a top speed of  45.6 MPH while burning a little more than 19.7 GPH.

Some of the most popular standard options on the 230 LXF include 30 Gallon aerated live wells with through hull pickup, insulated fish box and livewells, transom door, several different stereo packages, as well as stainless steel thru hull, stainless steel rub rail, stainless steel steering wheel with speed knob, a captain’s chair and bolsters, bow bolsters and cushions.


The 230 LXF is also complimented by LED navigational lighting, cockpit courtesy lights and in-deck anchor storage, a pull-up bow cleat, stern and spring-line cleats and fiberglass hatches.

The Tidewater 230 LXF is available in seven colors: white, carbon (gray), sky blue, bimini blue, fusion blue, island green and black.

And like every other member of the Tidewater family, the 230 LXF is backed by Tidewater’s commitment to, and pride in, quality construction and manufacturing.

Each member of the Tidewater family of boats also features all-composite, no-wood construction with fiberglass stringers and a hand-laid fiberglass hull. Each boat is rigged to AYBC standards and backed by a 10-year transferable hull warranty.

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.


Tax Tips for Gifting in 2017

It may seem silly to be speaking about contributions, donations to charity, and holiday gifting when the temperature gauges in some areas of the U.S. are still reading three digits. However, as anyone can see when they go to retrieve their mail, more and more envelopes, newsletters, magazines and promotional material is being sent out by organizations requesting donations. From the beautiful 2018 calendars being sent from places like the National Parks Conservation Association; to the lovely Christmas card samples being sent by the National Wildlife Federation, more and more mail is headed to your house from truly great organizations needing help to continue their work.


Extraordinary Emily Dickinson Biopic Available on Home Video

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) had less than a dozen of her 1,800 poems published, while she was still alive.
