Hmmm, so many options - so little time!
Skater - bad-azz and very cool! 28' (or new 30') with outboards - fast, quiet, good on fuel and oh-so-reliable! Still - small-ish cockpit and no real storage, but some.
The $64k question(s)... how fast do you want to go, do you want to sit or stand, and eggbeaters again, or I/O's?
BTW- didn't answer the last part of your question in your PM - all is well on this end with everyone / everything... just jonesin' to get out on the lake!
