Bought a 28' Active Thunder Savage (1999) with twin 350MagMPI's early December. Still at the factory in Pompano. Going to spend some time with it late February!
Still have the twin SBC powered Formula 242LS- haven't had time to advertise it- wouldn't mind keeping it, but the better half says it has to go.

I bought a new 2002 Checkmate Pulse 210 w/ 225 EFI OB with the Smartcraft 1000 system and pretty much loaded. Ordered it from a factory direct dealer in Bucyrus OH (KUNKEL'S MARINE 419-529-4446). I would highly recommend them for new Checkmate.

Wish I could come on the 16th, but my wife and I are going to a charity concert. We go each year, just happens to be that night. You're right though, I do need some bench-racin' Cabin fever..

I became aware of DSM picking up the Nordic line fairly late in my shopping process.

While all outstanding dealerships (which I did visit/shop at one point or another)there was no way that DSM, BB, or anyone else was going to beat the overall deal I made, and customer service I received during the order/build process than with AZ Discount Marine in Phoenix. Scott Buchanan, Owner.

Look forward to meeting you on the water sometime.

Old boat '93 Formula 252 SS....
looking at a 312 Formula real soon....hope it works out! This stock market & Enron is killin' me !! Totally unrelated industry stocks tanking because of Enron and lack of trust in companies accounting. This is a killer time! They need to fry Ken Lay & Anderson reps! Where is the "new economy" (Clinton-Gore professed) when ya' need it?????
