Amen to that, brother.

This thread needs a photo.

It looks like its running just fine in that pic Jay! I've been 140+ in the OL cats and it was pretty much boring. No issues what so ever!! Some one is going to get a bad ass looking ride that doesnt have a lot of time on it for alot less than a new one.

when did you put BPM's and a rudder on zacks old boat? Comparing the two is apples to oranges.

btw i had no idea theses two boats were so diff...i was told that for the same reasons that "whipplecharged" has explained that the ol was a mix pleasure/perf and that the mystic was pure performance...i guess the amazing thing is that its only a few mph's slower than aquamania.....which leads us to a couple of more ?'s

if ol brings a boat to the table that is pure performance, in theory it seems it should easily make up those extra mph and be faster than the mystic

and what kind of speed will the new myway reach with 3600hp in a mystic

Funny it ran faster with Merc 1200's then the yellow boat with the BPM's vs #6's, maybe its oranges to apples then?

There's one coming, but its got piston power so its not a direct comparison, but its a light layup, cut down top, smaller canopy, etc.

What a shame. We had all waited to see this first OL cat with so much anticipation. And now, after all the hoopla, the same boat ,is just sitting ,with no power, unwanted , gathering dust awaiting its fate. What a waste . And, in the meantime, this boat has had to lose alot of money for one or more of its owners, actually making it one of the biggest Goldiggers of all time. The irony in it all.

Its only been owned by one person Paul and then it ended up in the repo yard/under government seizure. Nothing wrong with the boat. The boat couldnt be bought for about a year due to the seizure I believe.
