Rick seems to like his boat a lot. He goes out every now and then.
Saw him out last year but he was with his wife and mother in law so he did not bit when I teased him with DOI. He's been out this year also saw him a few time.

http://www.boattrader.com/listing/19...e-800-96938235

i lost my gold status so i cant pm anymore and too lazy to renew


i looked at the new ones in montreal at the boat show this year but waaayyyy out of my price range....the pricing on this seem low or right?

what came in these as stock power plant?

may have someone interested in my fourwinns so the new boat shopping is kicking up another gear!

I was looking at those for a long time but couldnt find one within my price range. I think the price is about right with that motor.... obviously not the stocker. lowest price i found was 35,000. but that was for a 02 with a procharged 496. that looks like a good deal to me.

Real nice looking boat all around. Can a 350 really push that nearly 5,000 pound boat 55 mph?

I was thinking the same thing. If it's got a nice clean bottom it might. I just put a 383 in my 23' I'm getting 55 with bottom paint and not quite propped right. Slink, it's a nice looking boat and the price looks good too but you'll still be the slow boat in the crew you're hanging with.

not really looking to be the fast boat....if i wanted to be in a fast boat i'd have to look older and spend a lot more money. I just want something newer, bigger, nicer looking than what i'm in now.

It's a great looking boat with a nice layout. Mine's only 22, so while I can go faster than 55 when everything's perfect, I can't do it often.

Get it surveyed and take it out for a pin in some rough stuff. Looks like a perfect upgrade for not much $$$ if it's in great shape.
