Russ, I know you have seen the above link to my boat, but you owe it to yourself to at least drive down and look at. You will not be disappointed. I challenge you to find a stress crack anywhere! The cockpit is identical to the 380 and the only difference in the cabin is the wrap around couch is about 12" longer.

I will be happy to take you for a ride later next month after the freeze threat minimizes.

Nice!!! That's alot of boat for 100K!!!!! From what I remember, Macklin is really anal about taking care of his boats. That's a good thing when you are looking for a used boat.

Thanks Craig. It's one area where I don't mind being called 'really anal'.

But who said I would let it go for $100K?

How about Fred's Hustler? http://www.offshoreonly.com/esvon/page-8535.html ask what he'd take, can't hurt.

At leats no one recommended a 35' Fountain, its almost the same size as your 311 (311's didn't include swim platform and din't have a beak so was a big 31 for todays standards)

Just to let you know my 38 PQ measures 45' on the factory trailer. Other then that it takes big water great. Go look at Macklin's ride the PQ's are a great boat's. Good luck.

Macklin what are you looking at?


Rich.

CMG: Actually it's a 312 (fastech) not a 311 so my boat is 2 ft shorter than your think. I like the looks of a Fountain but it doesn't suit my cabin needs. I've been in a Hustler and have the same concerns about the cabin. Just doesn't seem large enough for what I need.
Macklin: Yours looks clean but I'm concerned It's not enough addlitional LOA to what I already have. I planned on jumping up more than 3 ft in length. (but who knows how the cards will fall)

Just looked at some more info on a 38 Donzi zx. Huge boat with a wide beam, but have you seen what they weigh!!!! I thought these may be a good choice until I see 11,500 dry weight. Anyone have one..Likes or dislikes???

There are lot of 38 Scarabs for sale in that range, with NICE motors and creature comforts. Might even find a 42 for that price..

Also my 38 is longer than 42 feet including the trailer and drives... Just so you know
