Dre you PM box is full

We cant afford that much boat. We will have to be under $30k $20k would be even better. I know my $ range will severely limit my possibilities.

Dre's boat is way beyond my wallet, but beautiful. I ran with them in a run at SML last year
I like the e-ticket boat setup and the cheetah. A performance pontoon? Just dont know if I could grow to like it.
Will have to be under $30k, hopefully alot less.

Call Knookster he has a pontoon with twin 2.4 Mercs... Runs about 85 and throws a nice roostertail...

Something like this... I am sure your wife would love it!

As mentioned earlier Playcraft makes a great performance pontoon, and it was a Playcraft Powertoon that ran 91 at the LOTO Shootout, but of course one like that would definetely be out of your price range. I have had two Playcrafts, both with 200HP Mercs on them. The boat with two people runs 50MPH on my GPS, so a true speed. It also has fins on the bottom of the logs that raise it up out of the water like a "V" bottom. The added benefit of the fins is that they also help stabilize the boat in wakes or waves, and most folks are amazed at how well it takes the rough stuff here at LOTO. Good luck.

I like those.
I'm not an outboard fan, so inboard V8 (496) would be fine. Gotta hear the rumble

Exact same situation here. I'm shopping for a cheapish toon, then buying a second boat. No way to get both in one.
