i know selling my boat or trading shouldnt be an issue..
insurance isnt bad either.
and its fast!!

this pic is at a little over 95 with 4 people in boat on the scope poker run.. still had throttle left
lets just do a straight even trade. just trying to help with the tax issues you have to bring it to loto though. dont think my pos truck could make it to Disc. Bay and back again

We ran a Poker run earlier this year across Tampabay in bad weather, conservatively 5-7' & with no consistency. Speed2lead in his Spectre ran with us & was the only cat to make it to the hotel that night. The ride across was that bad that I broke the needle off my Livorsi Tach from the pounding. Not to start a cat verse V-hull debate, the cats either broke mounts, could't get on a plane or were swamped with water. On the way back the following day I had Speed2lead follow us & we did't think they were going to make it across the Bay. PM Speed & ask how he & his wife enjoyed the ride.In 2-3's no problem, however when it gets big & sloppy the 30 ain't big enogh to get on plane imho.

steve the boat has to run better than that. i have a 98 30 spectre with 2003 300x's, spinning 15x32 3 blades only to 64-6500 rpms and my best was 106. full of fuel and people it'll run 99-101 everyday. peak power for the x's is 6800 rpms and my motors are deep. x is 1 9/16's which is very conservative. i've thought about a v as well because i do miss spending alot of time in the ocean but would have to be a helluva deal to convert me. if i were going to a v would have to be 32ft min and run 85 plus and even then i'd have to think long and hard. nothing like running my boat in 2-3's at 90 and not feeling a thing.
