Oops. Forgot that one.
Sounds likely though...
Must have been the run out of Monroe.
I had to pass up dinner with Donna too.
So you know that I really was busy.

Yep.
Now THAT was especially cool... because the water levels were so low at my dock that I almost had to use the river channel. I would not have made my trip to PIB that time if I didn't have the "back up." That was awesome. You saved the trip. Luckily... levels came back up.

I believe that one also. When I first joined this site. NOTHING on my boat worked.

Absolutely. I have to reduce the number of beers that I owe you. Obviously you aren't going to forget them.

I give up. You got me.
You should have been the top of the list.

(If TizBad has steps on that Ocean I am also screwed. )

I go with the " whats good for the goose" theory. Since I cant afford a stepped bottom boat they obviously suck.

Heavy boats good in rough. Steps run flatter, faster, and with less HP than straights. Steps can spin out if you forget she's flying. And boats are cool.
Yep.... everybody pretty much on the same page.
Actually experiences may vary.
I'm still waiting for this to get REALLY good...
You know how these threads go.

This is awesome! The new guy asked a question and started a cage match! This is almost as exciting as my job with Blackwater in Iraq. (almost) What all this boils down to for me is since I dont race and I'm inexperienced, the 32' straight v will do fine for a long time. This is an awesome website! One day, I too will be part of the Jedi Order. Later, Padowan casey

If you want a new straight bottom buy a Sonic.

I originaly set out out to find a single engine 28' but I came across this 1993 Nordic with twin 615s built by Lawrence racing engines in NY. It was sitting on a lake lot at Texoma. I was able to steal it for 17,500. Eventually I'll get my 28' but I think I'll keep this old Nordic......Casey
