Default I Think I Made A Mistake.........

Bought A Cruiser This Year After 10 Years Of Great Offshore Boating. Thought I Was Ready To Slow Down..... Bad Move.

Nice Boat.... 41 Formula 2003 Twin Diesels, Mint, With All The Bells And Whistles. (books For Around $260k) I'm Bored To Death Though.

I Need Speed!

Anyone Want To Trade Out Of Theirs?

Looking For A Nice Late Model Fountain, Outerlimits, Skater, Or Donzi, That Does At Least 100mph.

If You Are A Dealer, You Can Contact Me, But I Don't Want To Spend Any More Out Of Pocket.

I Have Lots Of Good Pics, And Will Listen To Any Offers.

Thanks

U think you made a mistake??????? 37 GTX to a 41 PC? You should have atleast bought a 37SS/ 40SS with 525's or a Fountain 48 EC to break youself into the cruiser style. Good luck in trading back to the faster side of boating......

Though the same thing once, went out on a 44 Carver with twin Cummings, after about 4 hours, my wife looked at me and said no way, too slow. I felt the same way. Never looked back. Maybe some day....just not soon

My bet is that he tells you the Formula is in for software updates as often as possible so he can catch a ride on your 43!

I get the same way on the 24 sea ray. Its soooooooooooo boring and slow it makes me drink too much, but its nice to relax in. I think two boats is the way to go. One for relaxing/entertaining and another to entertain yourself, maybe even a third if you like fishing.

Have the same problem when we go out on the Searay. Topend maybe 28mph, but you have everything possible for a huge party when you get there. Just have to plan on leaving earlier. Plus going slower does have it's advantages sometimes

Kept the go fast for those times when speed was the need.

Keep the cruiser and find a decent used go fast. That way you satisfy both needs.
