    Jeff,

    Check out the Southbay's. A good friend is a dealer down here. They have a 27' demo with twin 200 Verado's. Run's great and the ride is very impressive in rough water. My dad is about to buy a 25' 500 series with a 250 Verado.

    We have a Bennington 2575 RLI, Tritoon w/a 350 Yamaha....6" Bobs machine, Hydraulic jack plate, transom gussets and brackets we designed (mandatory) and a full wave shield....runs 52 - 53 MPH, rides and handles well.

    The boat is on a Roadrunner trailer we designed (Three Attempts/Roadrunners later they got it right).

    Note:
    1) Without the Jack Plate, the skag doesn't have trailering
    clearance. Some engines don't like to be tilted for an extended period of time.

    2) We Bleed black (Mercury) But, highly recommend the 350 Yamaha.

I honestly could not imagine a pontoon/tritoon built any nicer than a Southbay 900 series, quality was amazing, heck even the toons were pressurized, welding was awsome, they even put AL shielding under the boat between the toons, to be honest it was over kill, but was the nicest I have seen.

    They need to bring this boat to the Shoot Out for some competition.

    The Premier you can get a wide deck 10' if its gonna stay in the water. Or look at the Evolution they look the coolest on the outside but the inside is very West Coast looking but not bad.
