you really need to proofread your add, I stopped reading halfway through due to the spelling errors, It does seems like allot of boat for under 30K, but 12k for that paint job come on

Your kidding me right? Have you ever painted a boat before? Just in supplies alone? So anyone who pays 20 or 30K for a paint job is all BS. Doesnt seem like a lot of boat for under 30? Find me a boat over 30ft. twin 502's runs 80's with nice paint doesnt have to be custome on a trailer thats newer then 2000 for under 30 Come on get off the crack

Mitcher T Painted my whole boat for way less than 12K ,... it's a 31 Cat, & IMO looks kick ass, re read what I typed, I said your boat SEEMS like allot of boat for the money, so I guess you can't read or spell very well

berfbong, I believe this boat would handle the Erie chop much better than a 25' or 27' Haha...oops I mean Baja. Good price on it too.

Sick Stinger, I love the theme you went with on the paint. Pretty cool for the poker runs. Good name for the boat as well. Did you design them? You should bring it down to Jammin with OCD in July.

Ran sorry about that. I did miss read it my fault. As for the paint M.T, get some serios cash for a paint job from what im told. I know Strip Poker just had the 388 painted said it wasnt cheap but spot on to what he wanted.

Nauti we will see. I use to run with Remedy up here. But now he just jumps on with me, last weekend it was with his kids and him self. Good times great guy. Yes i designed the whole thing. Also once i get the engines back for the Cafe if its not to late that will go to paint also. Already have the scheme and had it drawn up. Just waiting right now on everything to come together,kind of feels like im in the stock market.

a bit OT
Mitcher T was the best person I have ever dealt with in the marine industry, I set my budget, & he told me up front what he could do for x amount, showed me a rendering & the boat was done on time as promised, I would definitely recommend him.

Did he paint the whole but or just what is show on the side. Also im not be a [email protected] promise but all you had done seems to be the side. I had my whole hull and deck resprayed and then had the air brush work done. The guy who did it only used card stencils everything else was donw by hand.
I do like it though great color chose it works well.

Go up 10k and the twins are a nice option in the 28ZX.

I have seen 26ZX's go in that range. Nice size cabin and a step hull. You can get some speed out of it now or really make it run later.

I did the 26ZX as a project boat. It is a screamer. I can run in snotty inland lake poker run water in the 80's without problem and bump low 100's in less disturbed water. Now I have a good bit more in the boat but you can do one that runs in the high 60's for his number. It has much more cabin than the Baja 25's. yeah, you can overnight in it.
