buddy bought a 05 last year 2-250 mercs.the side graphics are painted on and they started to blister.it was sent out to be redone under warr and came back worse then before.the rep told him you are not supposed to leave the boat in the water.we all got a good laugh.so now he is suing donzi to take it back.

They made it.
The 35 Fountain does ride nice, just so different from a CC. The CC are obviously much more tail heavy. The BB drown any rattles Still love the convenience of the CC

Well, it's a start, but I bought a older Hydrasport 1800CC with a 150 Yamaha. It's all pretty much been redone. Just gotta do a little rewiring for the lights and stereo. I took it out in the river on Sunday with 1-2 footers and a stiff North wind. I will tell ya, it has been a LONG time since I have riden in such a small boat in those kinda conditions! It was quite a bumpy ride! Of course, those conditions don't mean squat in my 31' Formula! LOL! In fact, I would call them ideal!

Thanks for all the good info. There are alot of really nice CC's with the forward cuddy's. That is what I'm leaning towards and despite the coolness of triples, I think twin's would be good enough! Anyone have some performance data on a typical 34-36 footer with twin 250's?

Do the CC's ride as good as the Offshore boats in similiar conditions? My wife hates a bumpy ride!

I like the quad bolsters on this boat. Do you know if it still had a bench in back or did they lose it with the extra bolsters?
