exactly, ..where does he mention affordable anywhere in his post...the 427 is a sit down boat, no different than the OL or Lavey with some type of a seat base..and is affordable vs the OL and Statement

Jeff, the NO $$$$ meaning no big money OL's or Statements, and the real world statement. On the 427 it doesnt seem like a true sit down to me from being around GTX's/SV's, running the Gladiator for years, being in most sit downs out there and currently owning two. It does seem like an excellent crossover though!! It seems from the pics part of the seat bottom drops down and there is no angled place to put your feet to push back on??

It may still have your fingerprints in the seat where you were holding on for dear life as I sailed it off of 5 footers.

Of all people here I miss this boat. The 39EVO is hands down the best value for the money of all 35'+ staggered sitdown Vs.
