this is just me and I'm sure someone will say I am wrong but I prefer carbs. Easier to work on. Before I broke my crank my boat could sit for 2 or 3 weeks and would crank right up like i just ran it.

I def like that one. I saw that while browsing through the classifieds. I've never read to much about the Sunsations. How are they in comparison to other makes?

That would be another question....... Carborated is more upkeep than FI.... ? What could be some arguments for Carb vs FI?
My last boat had a 600hp motor with a 1050 Dominator carb. To make a long story short I hated it. If I ever buy another boat it will be EFI.

If I were you I would make the call immediately if not sooner. You won't find a better boat. Go to the Sunsation owners' forum, read the threads and talk to the people who own them. That's the best way to learn.

Suns are fast, excellent-handling boats with lots of cockpit and cabin room. They run very well with 496 power and the stepped hull will get better fuel mileage than straight Vs.

Sunsation makes a better boat than Baha. This is really not even debatable.

Sunsations are nice,They do tend to chine walk above 70 from what I have seen.Other than that the one for 70g looks great.
Just my thoughts though take a hard look at the 28 Pantera its a big 28.

I wouldn't agree with that. If you have a "stockish" mild carbed motor, it can be trouble free. I'd take a carbed HP500 over a 496HO every day. More power, stronger bottom end, better motor overall.

Wild custom builds or huge power are a gamble carb or EFI.

Also, you may like Baja now, but won't like seeing "your boat" 3 times each trip out! The sunny (or lots of other options) may be a little better for you.
