For the 36 Baja bashers, are you aware they were the same mold that the Cig Mistress was made in? The Don himself said the Mistress was the best riding offshore boat he ever rode in. I think Baja has come a long way in their quality too.

I was giving it a little time.

It appears as though he is looking at particular used boats that are for sale, and I am not sure there are any AT s for sale that compare.

avarady, you would in no way be disappointed by a 37 Active Thunder. The 33 rides almost identical to the 37, but you already have a true 33 foot boat.

Take a look at the boats:

I can answer pricing and other questions.

Take All Of Them For A Ride In The Water Conditions That You Will Mostly Use The Boat In Then Decide That Is The Only Way You Will Be Happy With Your Decision. Just My .02

I Would Pick The Scarab But Then Again I Already Have

Those A/T pics are nice, but remind me of my house. I need no more kitchen than qualifies for the tax deduction!

Love all the info!
