Thumbs up I would buy a 31 Bullet again

The Good
Well-built heavy boat with a great ride. Will spank a lot of bigger boats in rough water. Unique looking, large cabin, not a boat you see everyday.

The Bad
Itís a heavy boat that requires more HP to go fast. Small cockpit.

The Ugly.
Not sure when the last one was built, most of the bullets I have seen have a black dash. If you want a modern looking cig you will need to update the boat.

Russ OSO member for Savannah is currently having new graphics put on his 31. Do a search on OSO for some pictures,

Not sure if you would consider this a good or bad thing. Lotís of wind in your face because of the low fairing.

For mid 70ís I think you will need 525 HP. I got 78.4 out of mine with 550HP, supposedly the current owner put on new bravos and was running around 82.

Mine was a 91. Dave Hunter painted my dash. I bet you could pick up some speed by raising the drives.
