I was going to buy at the end of summer, but if the price was right, I would buy now.

Default group buy?

Hi,

What kind of price are you looking for? I usually offer some pretty aggressive pricing, in fact I am currently offering kits for the 454mag, 502, and 502mag for $5,050.00. If you are interested you can call me @ (602)438-1361 or email me at [email protected]

Thanks,
Don Baca

Oh GREAT! Are you guys serious...?
Well thats great for you and Dustin.

Buuuttt..
I have a friend, whom I have been trying to talk out of getting whipples. \Believe it or not!
He's been talking about em since the day I met him. He will either kill himself or check book!

His has a 32' now. It's very light and quick. I don't know exact mph or hp ....but I want to say he can push high 80's and I wanna say 495 - 500 mercs..
besides that, they are High Maintence ..... FREE!
he took delievery last summer, so I am sure there is a warranty.

why spend 16-25k to get that little bit more speed...for what ....
1 more season....
to turn around and buy a 38'. Only to open ck book for more power, props, drives..
I'm sure his resale will lower....and what about the warranty..?

I think he should wait, put the money in the 38' for even larger power, drives & props!...the whole package!!
anyway...the length and the power go hand in hand for a better ride!

What do you guys think..?
Like to see other opinions....

Rivergirl - have you been talking to my wife? Story sounds very similiar!

I can't remember the exact details but I was thinking they were something like $4500 last year with a dozen or 15 people?

Rivergirl: As your name states, you are a girl. You just don't understand these highly technical upgrades to our cash eaters...I mean boats
In other words, we are guys and are too stupid to do something to our boats that make real sense...nuff said!

P.S. We truly ENJOY blowing our sh*t up! hehe
