How about neither?

Flashy graphics suck. A white boat is the way to go.

But i don't want a motor that blows up every year either.

Give me an all-white boat, an older straight-hull fountain or cigarette, with some nice, reliable diesels in it and maybe an 80-90 mph top end and i'll be happier than a pig in shiit.

Triple Yanmar 440's in the right hull could do this.

Exactly. Only thing i'd change is the motors... would probably want to go with some diesels. I want something that'll go 1000 hours with no probs.

However, i have no money. So i guess the price is another thing i'd change.

I'll take an all white boat, that is flashy and can go 100+ with reliable diesels. or 120+ with turbines

1000 a side is mild?? I though we were f*ing cool for having a boat with 1100hp/side?!!? The reliability goes out the window when you start getting really big on power. You spend more time fixing it than running! Been there done that

I like the 46 with a TAOD paint job and 1100hp That's show and GO! I didn't think 110+ was mild. Maybe we are just pu$$ies!?




For all you pondering, yes it's still at Cigarette.......

How about this

http://www.offshoreonly.com/esvon/page-7827.html

with these mils

http://www.offshoreonly.com/esvon/page-7939.html

and some

http://arneson-industries.com/asd6_kit.htm

Sho, Go and Reliability

Later on down the road graphics to match the colors of
motors with black and chrome accents and chrome tint for the
canopies. I dont know how the tint would affect visibility
but it sure would look cool

Orange lifelines and Orange Shoei helmuts w/ 5 person
com and graphics to match.

But if it came down to it I would go with slightly bigger
power 700-900hp depending on how much more power
the ASD conversion can take at its current rating of 750 lbs (depends on weight of the boat)

No, not really... I've seen the "Allen 4 is a putz" stuff before and I think it's ran it's course. That's what I'm getting at...
