Default What boat should I buy???

My 1996 Powerquest Vyper should be sold by next Monday. Since we have 3 month old baby girl, I was considering changing speeds/type of boat.

Not a true Cruiser, but the Formula 37' Super Sport with 496 MAG HO engines. Speed should range anywhere from 55 - 60mph. Boat has all the options we want (except for loud exhaust) plus the 5 year warranty.

I want to spend a lot of time out on the water (both day and night) so I want more room for weekends and long trips. I have a line on a 38 PQ with 496 HO's with AC, TV/VCR, Shower, Head etc. But again, not a lot of room once you get some place. Also, 38 PQ has lots of purple which the wife says is a must have.

Cost difference is about $65,000 between the 2001 Formula and 2001 PQ.

Am I being a P**SSY by going to a sport cruiser??? We are only 31, so we have plenty of time to go back to a speed boat when she gets older.

Note: We don't live on the water. If we did, I wouldn't even consider a sport cruiser. Our drive is about 45 minutes to the marina.

Get the Formula, so you can sell it to me in 2 years! Congrats on selling the PQ, I know you've had it for sale for a while now.

Magic (Robert) I've seen your boat for sale, what type of price are looking at? The 37ss we are looking at is a 2001 left over...dealer wants to move as soon as possible. Would love the 500 EFI's, buy don't think I could get the payments within our budget.

eeyzlee - thought about a black thunder, love the cabin and head room, buy there is not much cockpit space. My buddy has a Formula 40 SS who wants to get the new 46 Black Thunder. I would buy his boat, but the interest rate would be too high. I keep asking if he wants to lease to me, but I never get a firm response!
