I've owned three Bajas and loved them warts and all, now I don't.
The only thing I hate about Baja's is "Hey someone's bashing a Baja everyone post yer @ss off!"
I think half the disk space taken up on OSO's servers is dedicated to this forum drivel.
F-them if they don't like your boat, jeez... but why is a Baja owner starting this thread?

I had a Baja, and a friend has one.....both great , solid boats !
I more or less see them as a performance boat for the public.
They are widely seen at all boat shows and heavily advertise.
They are a great way to get into performance boating w/ a wide distributorship.
Unlike many of the other brands preferred on this site, who dont go to shows, advertise or have any dealers which have a low visibility, but are known w/in the industry and those in the know... like us / the majority on this site.
Again, i didnt get a $ on a 24 w/ a 496 or a 29/30 w/ twin 496s, to compare to some of these other "custom" builders.
With great power, comes great responsibility.
I understand your point, however I suspect most people make choices based upon their own preference, and not those of others. When was the last time that you, or anyone else on this website, decided
against doing what you thought was best in favor of following the suggestions of others
who do not even know you?
I respect everyones opinion on their preference in boats, cars, neighborhoods, and life ...
however in the end, it's you who must live with your decisions and their consequences,
not the others who would be pleased to choose for you.
Baja makes a nice boat. The only reason I do not own one is that i dont want to run down the lake and feel like I am in my car passing the same one every few miles. The make a solid boat just not unique.
An interesting thought, but I would bet $$$ that most people who dream about getting into high-performance boating just wish they could afford a great looking offshore V-hull .....
they could care less which one!
As far as too many Baja's on the water ..... just maybe it's because they're the most popular performance boat in the business.
Hope you & your family are well,
See you on the water ....
Ive owned many boats including 3 Cigarettes. If I ever left the Cig brand, I wouldnt hesitate to go back to a Baja. I owned a brand new 2001 29 Outlaw and loved the boat. They are a good all around boat for a decent price.
