My first boat was a 1989 Rinker 206 Captiva w/350 small block (and NO, I didn't add the windshield wiper. The previous owner did!). Second and current boat is a 2001 Powerquest 280 Silencer w/502 mag mpi. When I stepped up 8' I was looking for info on handling bigger boats and I was referred to OSO by fellow member Downtown42.

Cool Thread Tom:
Joined in Nov 2000
Had a 96 280 Velocity with 454 Mag at that time. Had Mystic Power boats repower it with a HP500, K-planes, KE Hydraulic steering. That was a fun/fast boat with reasonable gas mileage (Is there such a thing in boating!?)
In 2004 bought a 2000 35' Nordic Flame with 502 MPIs. Still have the Nordic.
In 2006 bought a 2006 Seadoo Sportster from OSO's Bob-the-builder, (Thanks again Bob, we use the Seadoo more than the Nordic, all the kids want to do now is go tubing/Sking!)
And I'm now looking at buying a Hydrostream Xegas XT.

Boating is a way of life for us, we have lived on the water for 10 years now, and I couldn't imagine life without boat(s)!!!

The Seadoo is the 8th boat I've owned, it's just a character flaw thing, I guess!

Darn, I can't find a pic of the Velocity, I got check my other computer in the office.
