Thanks for the input, I will go down and see him. I am working over near West Palm now so it would only be an hour drive down there.

How do these boats handle in a confused chop?

Mike if SportsUSA will sell you a new 2007-08 38TE with trip 275 Verado's for $219k GO FOR IT....that is rather CHEAP for this boat new!

I guess I need to lower my price down to $199k.

Yep! I just do not feel safe in a low freeboard boat. I and especially my short wife like to feel like we are in the boat. That is one major reason we liked the Fountain 38TE...in this style of boat it was the deepest and safest. 6'10 huh? I'm 6'5" still rather tall though.

That is what they were selling them for last weekend during the "Factory sale". It would be a 2008 so you might want to lower your price to stay in the game. When are you going to take me out on the boat? You owe me a ride, I closed on the business on Friday so I will have more time off. I will be over in an hour with beer? Mike
