AGREED,

Once again..

Yep, 600's w XR's...Not at all. I dont abuse it and its been great on my lake. Now, in rough water it might be a diff story. I'm guessing here but I would think the issues on 42's w XR's is the Executioner and Lighting....much heavier than the PR

Thank you pm203!

We can get you into the new 41 Pantera in a sit down configuration (like some of the old Apaches, he, he), with reliable 700s, in the triple digits, and in the affordable range....it won't matter whether you are in a lake or outside in rough stuff......

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.
300K is not affordable to most!!!
