I have been looking at them as well but a little newer as in late 90's and with diesels. Here in fl it's all about range! They are defineatly top of the line boats. The gas version are horrible on fuel. Not sure how big that lake is but that might be a consideration. I am also looking at the 33 wellcraft coastal it's close in size and layout. But honestly very little beats a tiara. To me they are on the level with a whaler as far as quality.
