Todd, where is the boat located? I have a friend with that exact boat and he was talking about moving up the last time I saw him. If it's the guy I know (there really aren't that many 261's locally, more 251's and 28's) it's a well cared for boat. 24* deadrise and he see's 65 on the speedo anytime he wants (but he runs it at cruising speed 95% of the time). It's a white boat with red and black graphics. He special ordered gaffrig/livorsi/gill/merc (not sure which brand) dual sticks. Cost quite a bit because they had to special build the arm rest area to get it where he wanted it (now they offer it this way, but in 95 they didn't). I've ridden in it several times and driven next to him MANY times. Runs right along with me no problem.
Decent boats, decent room, decent handling. I'm not much of a Check fan (don't hurt me Mr. Gadgets!!!) but the 261 is pretty nice.
