SpeedDoc,
Quote "Formula would be my top pick for best boat for what I would use it for(still have a few young teenagers hangin' around)" "and of course Founatins are a good go fast boat but limited space for kids in this size boat."
Now we have a whole different situation.
1.Form 271 + Teenagers = At the end of the date we can spend the night on my dads boat!
2.Baja 272 + Teenagers = Lets go see how many people we can fit on dads 8'4"Beam Boat before Harbor Patroll Gives us a ticket.
3.Velocity 280 + Teenagers = I still dont know, Mabe this boat is your best bet afterall.
4.Fountain 27'+ teenagers = "Look, my dads boat can out run the harbor patroll"

Mabe you should get a canoe untill they move out of the house.

IDRPSTF,
This could be fun as long as we don't cross the line !!Remember , your the one who suggested a canoe!!!
Color: Natural
Hull eer skin (plastic no good for canoe)
Length:I am Cherokee so two and one half "BROKERS" will be fine;Lets see, that would be 5' plus 5' plus 2 1/2', that would be 12 & 1/2 ', right?
# of whores, I mean ore's:3... no only two needed...1 whore with two good padding arms for the two ore's
Car Racks:none needed, have you got saddle bag mount for my horse?
Trade In:3 pigs; 13 chickens; 34 ducks; and 1 house broke wolf(name "WAYA")(LOOK it up)
Delivery:Send smoke signals and small scout team will pick up!!
BTW; are "skins" legal on the left coast?

Have a good day,
Steve

I have a 280 Velocity and love it so far. I picked it for the amount of cockpit and cabin size(nice headroom inside). Very deep cockpit which the wife likes for the little one. Hull is fast, Velocity is known for high X dimensions which can make prop choice difficult. 27 Fountain was too small and 29 was too much $$$$$$$$$$$. Alot of 272 Baja's where I boat. All seem to run different. I think you have to specify a higher X dim. than standard to get them to run fast. If looking at used, I would run the boat first. No experience with the Formula, but their record speaks for itself. My 280 runs 66 on GPS with a 454 Mag. Most 272 Baja's won't do that with a 502. In the end, all will provide a serious amount of fun!

4.Fountain 27'+ teenagers = "Look, my dads boat can out run the harbor patroll"
thats funny because when the coast guard saw my boat they were practicing with the CG aux, told my dad they want to race. I was told I better let them win.

had my velocity up to 66 on the speedo, with 2 people less than 1/4tank fuel and almost full trim, probally could of made 67. I only have the 7.4mpi(310hp) . Was chime walking a little at that speed. I saw a used 280 with a 502 somewhere on the net. Again good luck man
