I think you read to much into it. A sit down can be any of the boats mentioned.. You cant stand and drive these boats. As to the coin involved, the original poster made no reference to a 150k...you did.. OL and Statement by the last time I checked were in the 5-800k range... so 300k is affordable. He also stated SET UP FOR POKER RUNS...READ BELOW. Thats my take on it.




What do you think is the best sit down v bot. 35ft on up with Twin stag. no canopy set up for poker runs is?

In the real world ! no $$$$$ outerlimits or statments.

If they didnt handle right, Peter would change them. Only perfection comes out of the Skater factory, but for the money the 42 PR Fountain runs very well.

I think my Phantom will runn as fast or faster with equal power as the Donzi, Cig or Outerlimit. With about 650 a side (not staggered) it will touch the low 100's. 3 man Front bolster. Cool looking. Affordable to boot. Mine is a 99. It is a great rough water boat also.

Down side is they will be tough to resale as most people around here never heard of Phantom. This might not be a issue for you as your in Fla where they are made.
