last year when we were looking for a 288,, I considered this one,, but the wimpy,, 310 hp skeered me off.. It probably does around 57-59...

Looks like a boat I saw at Extreme Offshore. Sat there for a while. Looked nice though.

I seen that boat in the 1000 islands a lot, I had no Idea it only had a 310 in it, I always though 496 502 or 500efi
no wonder the Hatch was always down


boy now if it was cheap enough and the wife said OK , I could swap for my 450hp EFI and put the 310 in my old boat .

Too bad the wife says NO, wants new Kitchen, addition bathroom and bedroom

not a 310hp boat.......
Look at the pic of the engine. It's a 454 mag with a K&N air filter, some type of after market exhaust, and Imco drive components. Wiling to bet 60 is a fairly conservative guestimate.

i owned a 97'.
it does what it was designed to do very well.
rides rough in big water but its also light so you have to expect that.
beautiful lines and styling.
excellent fit and finish.
best customer service in the industry imho.
