Thumbs up

I appreciate all the feed back.
I know with all the choices out there, opinions on what is better relaies heavily on what you’ve invested in.
To answer a few questions
1.moving up from what? changing strides from a 360 cobalt fast? Depends on the day. Don’t want/expect to be the fastest on the water but w/ options listed shouldn’t be the slowest either. fast can I afford? I have done a bit of checking around and am under no dilutions the price tag associated w/ the boats listed
4.Cabin? No overnights but “use full” space
5.Mentioned the lightening just to get some feedback, have some experience w/ not that model but that manufacturer and ya your right, not really comparing apples to apples compared to the other 3.

Again, thanks for all the info.

That drive was just put together a couple weeks earlier, by a technician that will never touch my boat again. That should have never happened.

Wouldn't happen to be a local guy just south-east of Richmond would it?????

What are you talking about? True, the cabin door is a little tight, but after you enter, and go down the spiral stair case, the Gladiator cabin is quite expansive.

Sent you a PM.

Funny thing is, I had no idea anything was wrong with the drive. I thought it was a broken shift cable, as the boat was stuck in forward. The drive was not even making any noise.
