planning to go on the lake saturday... are there any motels / hotels in mallet's bay? or the only solution is a cab ride up to burlington?

maybe have some friends coming but my boat is barely good to sleep 5, not 8 or 9...

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!
Slink....alot of sb strokers can make a ton of pwr and torque...if the true pwr is around 350...that particular combination will be working pretty hard at least until your up on the pad. Combined with a bit of a deep X, may not be the best combo for the Chase hull....but? Get more info on the motor. Outside of that if the boat is in as good of condition as the pic's show, it's a good deal $$ wise. Due your homework!

There really aren't Jeff. If you can grab a spot at Breakwaters, call a cab to the Hilton, or even walk from there. Maybe some deals at the Hampton Inn Colchester, they have a shuttle. Not too far away, 34 miles maybe. Call The Moorings for transient dockage and get a ride from there.

The Sheraton Burlington may be able to pick you up as well.

guy wrote me back and said the HP is 350...but 383's are known to build more torque than HP...so more torque would be good for getting the boat up on plain.......i'd like to see some more specs on the motor, particularly a dyno sheet...he sent me some bigger pics and the cuddy looks really clean....i dont like the bottom paint but that can be fixed...now if only i could get the woman to quit worrying about the wedding in 21 days and worry about a new boat we'd be all set lol

Just tell her it counts as your wedding present

I'll be heading out tomorrow afternoon for a week down in Willsboro Bay. Winds in the morning look stiff, then letting up, hopefully. We'll be staying at a little old cottage way down the end on the West side. Roughing it for a week.

Three coolers ready, hopefully we'll be able to really explore and have some water fun next week. I'm sure there will be a Turtle run and a Breakwater run involved at some point. Might even explore the Southern end of the lake if the wind is light. Be great to see some of you guys out on the water if anyone's around. I'll be trying to put as many hours on as possible from now until the end.
