I bet that the Miami Boys would disagree with you on racing a Pantera with a Bravo!

Put a BMAX on back and you're good for 950HP

i would actually take the blower off if i were to purchase it. I'm not a blower type of person. The only think that i would like to see is a radio, and that is fairly easy to install.

Don't forget the dry exhaust - sure to make you close friends with all the local law enforcement types!

A few other things:

1) $4.00 gas just around the corner.
2) Skyrocketing insurance rates.
3) An economy that's teetering on recesssion.
4) A bursting housing bubble.
5) No more easy credit (see number 4).

But that's the problem with all boat sales recently, not just this one.

For the Money I think its a good deal if it suits you needs.Its cheap enough that you would not get hurt that bad if you sell it in a few years

I looked at the boat twice at Shogren. Could not convince the wife even with the vision I had of redoing the cockpit, engine hatch, etc. I had a conversation with Pepe who told me that whatever I wanted for the cabin space it would always be a crawl through entry. To make it like their standard entry would be a major project and not cost effective. The cockpit reconfiguration is no problem. It is very nice, however built for a specific purpose.

To make it more pleasure friendly, this was this list of to do's

Reconfigure cockpit
Create cabin space maintaining crawl through access
Padded engine hatch and hyd. hatch lift
Stereo system
Swim platform
Remove rubber pad floor and install snap in carpet

All this while hoping the motor and drive hold together.
