Give me a call at the factory, 401-253-7300 ext 105. I know of some really nice 42's out there that might be a solution for you. If you like 900's, the 42 is a great boat, huge cabin, solid in rough water, but still fun to drive in the flat water. You also can't beat the # 6's either. You can also run those 900's and when rebuild time comes around turn them down a bit to gain more longevity.

That's right, especially if speed is not that important to you.

Speed does have a factor, I do want to be able to go 90mph. It's not all about speed because how often can you go flat out.

a lot of wide open where I am, I would call the OL, and see what they know of whats out there. even stock boats break down and if the 900s need the upper redone then spend 2500 each and make it a hyd roller if you boat 70hours or more a season. if not keep it solid roller and adjust it every spring. the boat with sixes yes, otherwise you will be down with a 675hp boat with bravos doing drive rebuilds, and coupler replacements. art

Another educated post from Pro 1. I'd love to see what any other 11 year old boat with half a motor and that has been sitting around for a while would bring on the Market The original sale price on that boat in 1998 was less than 250, 000. So in 11 years that is far above average depreciation. Offer 60, put another 50+ into making it whole, and you are at 110K +, or you can buy a complete running 37 for the same price. Either way I would say that the Outerlimits is in line or ahead of the industry for value retention. Clearly you have an agenda and that has blurred your sense of reality.

The boat was traded from it's original owner, then sold to another gentleman who raced it for a season, and won a world championship. He then re powered it, updated the cockpit and interior.

both are the same year.
Also the 900's have solid roller cams which is beat.

Style of boating is cruising around with the family and some poker runs.Do a lot of raft ups/ swimming. Looking for most comfort, handling, and ride in the rough, speed is last on the list. Of course it's cool to go 100mph once in a while.
