Mild power is better for resale if you care about things like that. Ask any broker how hard it is to sell a boat with monster engines.

but if you keep a boat very long, then it is going to need new paint and interior eventually too. if i had extra money id keep it

Well 1000hp per side being mild is news to me!

But, bottom line I would absolutely, positively, without a doubt choose a sleeper. BIG power and bare minimum everything else.

Spend every penny on the power first and do the rest later. You can never get enough hp and speed.

Would you choose mild power with tricked out interior/paint/rigging.

Or

Function, bare or minimum graphics/interior with plane functional rigging, with massive, unbelievable driveline.

keep in mind for the purposes of this poll, you can not have both.
I vote go. Show is flashy but overrated. Go will make a lasting impression.
