I run 55MPH @ 3000 RPMs slightly bigger power comes with slightly more maintenance.....

Triple engine bravo boat with 3 home made engines....

Go for a used 38' with twin Mercury 525's and you will be much happier!

That is true, but three engines take more to maintain than two. And drives.

The bottom line is this- you just don't see boats in this range with triples on dealer's lots anymore. There's a reason.

I asked him a question on Ebay when it was for sale with a starting bid of $60k and no reserve. That was probably in winter or spring of '07 and he responded, but I must have deleted the email.
