I can't believe Bayliner made both lists. This must be based on the amount of units sold in a fiscal year???!!!

Sea Rays rule....they keep selling like hotcakes good economy or bad economy...these days a fully loaded 34' Dancer with gas engines..A/C etc is under 200k with special financing rates and the interest is written off as a second home deal.

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?

No, No, they were searching for maintenance ideas, or the home phone # of the MF'er that built it.

Unhappy Re: Top 15 Boats Brands Searched on Internet

bayliner!!!!!............theyre great for playing rock the boat. too lite.... Iwill say the larger ones (over 35feet) are ok for a cheaper boat.

no offense to bayliner owners....


how about a 90' 26 ft wellcraft nova st with the stepped or pad bottom hull. its not the typical deep vee. don't see many, but does anyone know anything about them or the history. It has twin 350 mags, and runs about 64 gps stock at 5000 rpm. Anyways, I know the older nova hulls were good, but they redesigned them and i bought one with this different hull(for wellcraft 1990 technology anyways). any info about this would be awsome......i called wellcraft and i think the boat is too old to even talk about ..no-one knows why this hull came and went
