I agree, but most people like the pipes under the platform. I would'nt trade my setup for nothin. In fact, when we get a larger boat, the pipes will have to exit over the platform.
One of the few I've seen that I liked, was Bill Taylors 42 Poker Runs America boat. I think I'll just keep mine.

He had another boat at the galveston yacht basin called the elise. I dont recall what brand it was. 40-50ft express cruiser type. It pretty much sat in the slip unused.

I have to admit, I have a soft spot for the old style flat backs.

Frank, your boat looks great. Keep it.

Why is it that most 3a boats with hydraulic steeering have low mount saddle mount tie bars? Mine included.

I saw it for sale in an advertisement somewhere with a price in the upper 60's. Seemed like a hell of a deal! Has blower motors and 3's on the back if I remember correctly.

Wish I had the dough!!

everyone keeps asking where the boat is for sale... have any of you tried too look fo it for sale? because it is in OSO classifieds... it is frusturating to look through 200+ fountains, but if you are interested quit being lazy and waiting for someone to give you a link to the exact classified.
