I am curious what person that was swift enough to earn that kind of dough, would let their 15 year old child have one..... I only get partial share (I get to kinda of say its mineish ) of the checkmate for freezin my azz off during the middle of winter getting the ice out of it, getting drenched with freezing water b.c the cover falls through very few days, washing it every weekend when its up here, researching and finding all the parts for all the boats....If you have money I understand giving a child more becuase you want them ?happy?, but I hope he is teaching the child by making him do something to earn it.....

This is just what the merc guy at the Miami show told me. Rebuild every 50hrs for about $25k per engine if it comes in solid. This is for the 850 and 1075.

You sure that's a 50'? With the beak on her I think it's still a 46

Nice boat. For only a 1/2 mill more you can buy the APache

I don't get the kid 15yrs old. Is he son of a tribal leader somewhere?

Not old enough to drive? Order a 1.5m cig and hire a captain, problem solved.

15 year old will be on crack if not already. Lost cause.
