There's absolutely nothing wrong with a 38 Special. Hey, there's a perfect boat to fit every taste, if you like the 38 Special look into it. They're very spacious and user friendly boats.

I love my 38 Special. I still have it and it is for sale. We were so happy with Baja that we moved up to a 442 for some additional room. The kids got bigger and the 38 got a little crowded. Both boats run well in rough water. Yes they are slower but no complaints about the ride.

P.S. If your GF has any complaints about your boat, tell her to get out HER CHECKBOOK!
For some reason her check book is always out of checks? Ive never seen a checkcard thats soo worn out and still works too.

HMMM letting the girl friend influence your boat decision, Just a thought, but what boat would you rather be on if you were single, let me rephrase.... which one do you think you would pick up young bikinis in?? hats the one you should buy.

Yea! What he said!!! If it was a wife of 10 plus years, then maybe you might have to THINK about a cruiser for about .3 seconds, but a g/f??? Oh helllllll no, because I have learned that they just want to see if you'll do what they say, get you to buy something you really don't want and then they're outta there. At least with a go-fast, you will attract other high quality strippers.........I mean girls and she'll have some competition which means she will love you more, but if she leaves, it's no harm/no foul because YOU have the boat, YOU want!!!

Same here!! The wife and kids love it!! Tons of room for them to go down in the cabin. (6ft headroom) The performance is enough to get me by, but I would love to go faster!! Mine is a 1993 with 502's and has broke 60mph once on GPS, it runs 58-59mph all the time in any water. I have thought of selling it and upgrading it but the boat I would like to upgrade it to is a lot more money!! (38zx Donxi)
