    Re: What would you different?

    I would be willing to bet that the new generation of XR and ZX drive improvements would fix the Blackhawk problems I had 11 years ago.

    I would go and look at the Apache, Low Profile before making the decision to get my Sonic.

    I would have waited a year and bought Rob's 311.

    I should have invested all the money i spent on the first boat into lottery tickets! Then I could have really run with the big dogs!

    If I were buying.......

    1. Skip the expense of graphics.

    2. Invest in #6 Drives or Arnesons

    3. Buy too much horsepower [ever hear anyone say I wish I'd have bought smaller motors?]

    4. Spec no more than a quarter cabin.

    5. Delete deck hatches

    6. Minimal deck hardware and all of it flush.

    7. Personally select hardware and accessories.

    8 Plumb with large 12" sea strainers

    9. Use a top rigger. ie Bobby Moore, John Pompi etc.

    10.Rear bolsters.

    I could go on.....
    im in the middle of doing the above including john pompi!!!! minus #4 im doing a std cabin..
