Young or old it does not matter. But that picture with quad 300xs hanging off the back is just plain sick looking.

So if the Fountain 38 is doing just under 85 that means the topfish should be doing around 65 and be priced around $150,000 to $200,000 more.

The Cig. looks cool but they need to get the speed up, it's pretty much the slowest of the nice center consoles out there. You could buy 2 used 39 Midnights that are faster for what one trip 300v Cig cost, let alone the 400k 4 motor boat.

I am pulling for the 4 stokes to get better and lighter, 2 strokes are for chain saws and weed wackers. It won't be too much longer till the 4 strokes are better in every way, the 4 strokes have been coming on strong the last 5 years and in 5 I bet they are the motor to have, witch aint bad since it's been a 2 stroke world for ever as far as perfomance.

I am in the motorcycle biz and when the MX bikes started going 4 stroke they were big heavy pigs that blew up all the time, now they are just a few pounds more and it's worth it, they are so much better. And now we get more 2 stroke rebuilds in than 4 stroke and it's only been 8 or so years that they have been making them. I would say by 2010 only the real light 2 stroke race engines are what will be better than the 4 strokes, just like the MX bikes. but I don't think 3 or 4 2.5 race motors would do good on the back of a 12000# V hull.

The verados would be interesting on a 30 skater.

Power steerint, fly by wire and low sound.

The lower unit is a problem, they need to add the speedmaster or something like it.

2007 with very little hours, it is owned by a friend of the family that is going on disability and was told he can not own it anymore. He has probably done $2500-$3500 in Yamaha accessories to it. Most of them were just installed in December and the bike was bought in July of 2007. It is blue in color. What do you think a fair price would be for it? Mike
