You better make a decision soon, there's only about 22weeks and 3days until boating season starts

Has the Mystique 500EFI's been rebuilt prior? Something to consider -- you're in even that much better shape w/ the Cig. if it has had a top end job.

Bottom line... No doubt, Make and engines will keep you in-the-money..... Listen to Tres and Phil --- they know their stuff and won't say it if it isn't true.

better rebuild those drives too...


NOT
Yea Yea.
But to me boating is about passion and loving what you have.
If its the deal thats important, the passion has to be put aside to some extent. I personally like old school styling, and don't think a formula would be on my list, no matter how good a boat it is(which it is!) and how good the deal. I won't boat to save money... its all about the enjoyment. Just my $0.02.

And this is where our boy bern is having a hard time.
Get what you want, or get the good deal.

a little off topic, but my mom was looking for a new car, with best deal she could get. I pointed her towards a new bmw X3, excellent deals back in the summer($36000car for $400/mo, nothing down). It was an ok driver. But after driving the audi A3 3.2 w/ dsg, she was hooked. the audi was more money, but the enjoyment she was going to have was worth it.
