Pretty impressive. Any idea what you can get one for?

I understand they are expecting 90mph with 496HO's!!!
Here is a picture from the dealer meeting at 100+ in the 35 w/525's taken by FountainDealer

Dang, the drives are only at 3 1/2. How was it coming on plane? Did they change the cockpit interior much?

Can you imagine how fast one of these would go with the new 700's. Holy Smokes

Are the 38SFC and the 38ZSF not the same type of boat? I am well aware they could have picked another outboard powered 38 sport fish cruiser-type boat to compare with, and I'm sure they did.......whatever the slowest one made is.
My point is that if someone asked you what you thought the most comparable competitor to the 38SFC was, what would your answer be?

With the current energy situation being what it is - uncertain - I think it's hard to invest in any boat manufacturer, especially in an illiquid stock like FPB that sometimes doesn't trade for days. Getting in or out of it would be a nightmare for most investors.

How's your boat doing Peter? Did you have a good season?
