That was such a fun boat. It is on Lake of the Ozarks now. A few of my buddies over there have seen it out. I hope the new owner enjoys it as much as I did.

I'd have to say neither also. Both are too big for the type of boating I enjoy. A 35-38 footer would be about the max for a go fast for me.

My 29' is easy to trailer dock and beach.

That's not to say I wouldn't love to take a ride in both

The river was busy this past weekend, numerous boats + about 15 offshore boats up from the Clear Lake area.

You will not recognize some parts of the river, the floods of 94 and 98 destroyed about 150 homes at Banana Bend and another 50 were bought out. Much has changed and somethings never change

Rio Villa is thriving again with new construction, albeit 20' in the air.
