Do you want to show her one? I can help.

They may not be quite as big, but they can be as well appointed and plush. A little Tommy Bahama maybe?
Don't do the AT !!

Then you'll have homo seating and she'll be screaming in your left ear to slow down

Now thats funny there You can make the choice yourself on center or side entry. Side entry makes for a bigger cabin. Funny that O.L. and N.T. all have the side entry. Must be doing something right. I went the Sea Ray route foe the wife and she never used the shower galley or anything that it had over a performance boat and *****ed about how long it took to get somewhere. BUT she wouldn't listen to me in the first place, we are always wrong, needless to say it was gone after 2 summers

Dude, you sold that slug? I can't believe it. What's all that around the windscreen? Pop rivets?

I kinda like the boats with side/side bolsters. I get to work the two sticks put in the boat for me; at the same time she works the stick I put in the boat for her!

What you need to do is get her in a larger type V-bottom. There are only a handful of real boats like this on the market. A boat with real headroom 6'3" plus where she can walk from one end to the other. A boat with over knighting amenities, show her the micro, fridge, full walk in head w/shower, macerator, storage area's above and below. TV/DVD, sink, icebox and full galley. A boat with a slightly larger beam 9' will accommodate 8 of your friends in comfort..Lastly, a boat with style, quality, and excellent customer service and still towable behind a doolie pick up....there is really only one model that does it all, and still attains an excellent, soft ride with decent speed...A 43 Nor-Tech If you ever need to check one out, just pm me.

The wife and all her friends love the my BT46 EC water condo. It doesnt get much better 6 ft 10 head room. We had 14 people aboard for a little 140 mile cruise on the Miss river. Now is the best time to buy. If your ever through memphis, stop and take a look.

I think the larger (40'+ boats) are the way to go...like the OL, Nor-Tech, A/T, etc... I LOVE Cigarettes, but they don't have cabin amenities that compare with these others.

The "ultimate" way to go may be H20's way - with 2 boats, but that can be expensive.

Why choose? This one can handle lots of peeps. It has a reasonably wide beam, seems to be powered OK.
