    Thanks for the input. I ended up ordering a 31 Contender with the stepped hull, with twin 250 Yamaha 4 strokes. I had the opportunity to test ride a similar setup and was very impressed with the ride and fuel economy.

    Real life data will follow in the spring...

    Hi Dreamer,

    You are very right about them getting a lot of the boats. The boats are a low cost investment and run great in the rough and can hold people. See where this goes. In South Florida any big center is a player in the transport business. They have taken many Wellcraft, Hydra-Sports, Avanti, Carrera, Catera Renegades and others because they can handle the seas.

    One of the 32 Renegades I have now was a "runner" in a former life. It is in great shape and we really enjoy it.

    It is a great boat, especially when you figure what you pay and what you have left over. The downside is they, like a lot of other twin and triple boats are tough to finance down here. You are correct about the blacklist too.

    Seems to me they used to use some other Go-Fast boats back in the day to do a little transport, Cigarette and Midnight to name a few. So do you stay away from those?

    At the end of the day they are super nice people and deliver a great product for the money. I do not "Transport" but truly appreciate a good well designed boat that actually delivers on what it should, when so many fall so short.
