There were a couple of them at Ft Myers poker run earlier this month and did not look out of place at all. Years ago when I ran stock powered offshores I got over to the Bahamas 5 times. I want to have a boat that will allow me to do that and go even farther down to the Islands now that I have more time. So that is the plan.

Seriously, Bob- I guess it's a bittersweet decision, eh? She is one helluva ride .

Hello Jay. It was a tough decision. I know the market right now for used boats is brutal. I think I have been realisic in my asking price and have a few things going for me that will allow me to do an even better deal. The Canadian dollar vs US has strengthened by close to 10 % this year with further strengthening forecast. Since I make my $ in CAD and seem to spend them in US it helps a lot. Also by running the sale and new purchase thru Double R I will pay taxes on the difference only saving me a chunk of change as well. So, we will see. If it doesn't happen I think I can still have a good time ! LOL

Hey Dawn,

I should have mentioned in the add that you have graced your presence on PREDATOR and given her the seal of approval !! Now there is some added value ! LOL

You still have some seat time coming to you from solving that skill testing question. LOL You gals from Ohio sure are smart ! You might have to collect tho on my next ride. We'll see. Hoping to do PIB at the end of July.
Bob

Bob,
Good luck on the sale, it's a beautiful rig, wish we could have made the poker run last year, but the wife's neck surgury pretty much squashed that.
BUT, I will say that we are still having a blast in the Seadoo Sportster! And our next big boat, will be diesel powered.
Thanks again,
Dean

Bob,

Found the thread! Predator is an awesome boat that has treated you well and I'm sure it was a hard decision to let her go.

I regret not only never having ridden in her but never even seeing her in person.

Put me on the mate's list for one of those long bahama trips if you need a hand!

As an aside, DAWN, it's that time of year again for the Fox Chapel Poker Run. I can PM you the details if you want to go again!

Thanks Dean,

Hope you know you are always welcome to join me. So if you see a chance in the future just let me know.
I have read some of your posts re: Jetboat and am glad to see you are enjoying it. Think I read you are working out on the West coast for a bit. Keep well.
Bob
