I thought you were asking if there were many speed boat in burton... Yes I work in a GM dealership, but yes I also sell used sport boat. so, in my warehouse, I'm only surrounded by speed boat! some cruisers once in a while I get on trade...

Don't get me wrong! the prestancia I just drove runs perfect. it was my first time out in a 30 foot cruiser twins 4.3. will definatly stick to speed boat for a while!

will come back on that later!

I'm back with not much time, but a little...

Funny thing is I almost got lost one time for deep bay, and I got lost coming back from burton looking for the bridge... reason? this boat runs so slow (roughly 25 to 28 mph at 3600-4000 rpm) that I lost the kind of momentum I had in the other boat, like if you see this bay, 5 minutes later it is this island, or this beach or whatever else... so I was driving waiting for the next spot to come I rely on to know where I am, and then I would doubt if it was the one or not, because it felt so long... different type of problem than GLH would have at 100 plus mph! But honestly I could not find the kind of rythm I was used to at 40-50 mph... I'm not a good captain for sure!

Some good south wind today but not that bad, 3 to 4 foot waves... funny how a cruiser slows down when plowing thru the big waves instead of our go fast wich more likely bang on the wave or walk above instead of plowing...

next time on the lake should be with the 35-7, can't tell when...

Anyone knows who owns this boat?
