That "Chapter 11" stuff sounds funny coming from a guy with a fountain. Your abviously not talking about Active Thunder, my 25' probably has as much freeboard as your 42'. p.s. I liked your video thread, good stuff.

Alright Sleve find a way(haggle) to get that 28 AT, seems like exactly what your looking for, just a little out of your $ range. My 25' loves the Chesapeake so that 28 would be awsome. DO IT!

I've looked at that 28 AT a few times on here and you are right, I keep going back to it because it has all but the price haha... I'm going to keep my eyes on it and see what happens within the next couple of months.

28 Powerquest has alot of room, missing the enclosed head however. Mine runs 74 and could be bought.

That is an invitation to own the boat till you die - no resale at all unfortunately.....
