I wish I didn't buy new,, but at the time I had a trade so I was kinda limited. while the boat was being built, I sold my trade. Then 2 weeks before I was supposed to take deliver and the dealer I bought the boat from screwed me out of 3 grand, when he asked me if I wanted my deposit back I should have jumped on it.. I would have looked for someting a couple of years old,, bigger w/ bigger power.
I also would have saved myself 5 grand and went with just the 496 mag, and hopped it up to 525 with a Raylar package for the same money the H.O. cost.
