    Baja paceboat w/trips

    One of the few (i think 3 exist) is owned by a person that is local here in the quad cities... And a buddy of mine is possibly looking to buy it. I'll keep everyone posted. I think its a 42' with #6s. It would be used a little more and get to the ozarks every summer if my buddy picks it up.

    The 42 is the ONLY one! It is the ONLY stepped bottom boat Baja ever made. The ONLY one!!
    There are lots of threads on there about the boat. It is a neat boat that will suck up more fuel than I could/would want to afford.

    So, its one of one? I thought there was 3... Ive seen it a couple times. has triples and #6s. think there is exhaust exiting both the sides and stern of the boat. each had blowers i think.

    Mike Ohrt is the owner and he actually livs in Albany Ill, about 20min N of Q.C.
    I am actually going to his shop in Low Moor tomorrow morning.
    I have always liked that boat, in fact I was really on the fence to buy it this past summer. Boat is set up right & is priced very right. The only down fall I could see would be the gas. It would be cool if someone in the area bought it & actually used it, it always gets alot of attention.

    Very nice boat and priced great. Maintenance and gas is going to be ALOT.

    I wouldn't take it to Lake of the Ozarks. Last I heard, the owner was told to never bring it back.

    This is not true.
    I was at his shop this morning talking with him about this. He was pull over because of a driving reckless complaint and ticketed for noise. He was with his family and tried to tell the water patrol they stopped the wrong boat. of course they hear that all the time so needless to say he got a ticket and was told to take it home & put it on the lift. Later that day he got a call from water patrol saying they needed to talk with him. A long story short water patrol told Mike that they made a mistake & pulled over the wrong boat (I know, hard to believe they admitted they made a mistake) that the boat that was called in had a similar paint job but was a cat, they did pull the cat over later that evening.
    This is a one off boat with high dollar parts on it. It would be ashame but it could be parted out and be way money ahead.

    He told a few people he was fed up about being harassed by water patrol about noise at LOTO. He still have it tucked in the back of the body shop?

    I think it's the boat in the Baja 'Speed Changes You' promotional video from some 10 yrs or so ago. I can watch that video over and over.
    Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they
    bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
