I was in one last week....very nice...comfy...everything you could want...ride is superb in a 1-2' chop. But the "needle" kinda stops in the upper 30's.....lots and lots of value and decent speed and reliability....you just have to allow a little more time to get around is all

A 34' Sea Ray is a lot of boat for the $$. It is one of their best sellers and resale is unbelievable.

...wonder if Aronow ever tried one out?
Ironically Connie Ray started out making the first fiberglass caskets. Moved into boats from caskets. Most people do it the other way around.

no offense to bayliner owners....
Speaking of rock the boat.... we try to refrain from slamming boat brands on OSO. There is always somebody with a better boat than you. (And especially better than me.)
Besides, Bayliner is too easy.

Welcome to OSO.

Parmentier... is that French?

I know everybody llikes to rag on the Bayliners ,and i mean everbody but i have a twin engine 28 footer with a flybridge from 86 that i bought for a boat to go diving with and the hull is adout a inch and a half thick and weighs 10,ooo pounds.Alot of the others can be real peices of chit though,I think a lot of it has to do with they are an entry level boat for 1st time boaters and just fall into disrepair from lack of maintanance.
