Yes, We had a 26zx. We had gotten rid of that back about the turn of the year. Actually we had that for while by our normal ownership routine.. We for a while were going thru about 1- 2 a year.. The same went for our cars for a bit too.. My wife's attention span for these things had been a bit screwy for a while.. lol.. Wasnt all bad tho as you can get to have some nice experiences doing that & enjoy different things.

Anywhoo...
We wanted something bigger yet, and still also have a fast boat. We also wanted to have a smaller boat like a classic again too. This way we kind of would have the best of both worlds..

We will probably also still get another bigger boat yet as well. We would like to have something for very large water that we can stay on for short periods of time. However we found the cool smaller boat first that fit our smaller boat needs..

I just hope she (the wife) can let me have a few months breathing time before she finds the right fit again for the bigger boat.. lol Wonder what it's going to be, Cruiser, sport cruiser, Go fast??? I guess time will tell.. lol J

Thanks. Nothing really wrong with it currently, but the current plan is some cosmetic stuff, as well as some engine/drive upgrades and performance work this fall/winter. I also plan to do some stuff with the trailer.. As far as a descript list, I am not sure how far I will be going on it, but I will be posting as I go. I do already have in our shop a new style heavier Bravo unit & transom assembly that I will be upgrading to, as well as a Hydraulic steering set up. To start with. Jamie / Lakeside
