FOR 30,000 YOU CAN GET IN A NICE VELOCITY 26 with a blower motor thats worth 20,000 a lone its 1000hp. thats no deal on profile sorry 96 its worth 18,000 or so you can get 25ft or longer boats that are 99 or newer from 25,000 and up. its a buyers market. let me know if you want to talk to the owner.

If you want a wave crusher I'd look at Cigs, 28's, Bullets or bigger.

I LOVE my 29 Outlaw and run it in the Pacific in pretty snotty water and it does fine but I wouldn't call it a wave crusher like my old 28 Cig was. It is a lot nicer boat with way more cabin though. And I've learned that there is other throttle positions besides pegged!

There are some pretty good deals on them if you look around enough.

Also thinking of a fountain but, i think I can't fit it in the budget.
The time to steal a boat is now. looking at repo's
I have a 87 baja 25 454 trs. loads of fun.
not new or fast (60 gps) enough.
Looking for good advice on getting a great boat and great deal, that I can use for many years without wanting more.
Thanks

I have a Fresh waster,
rack stored
low hour
Twin engine
29 scarab

if you would like some more info drop me a line
