Default Mr. B

All I can say is that I learned everything I know from you. We sat together in the old Aronow office and B.S ed for hours. I owe all this stupidity to you, Val Jenkins and Bob Gowens. If I was smart I would have kept my day job. You all showed me the passion that you must have to keep going in this industry. It gets ugly and outright nasty. The problem is that my father got me hooked at 2, racing around in a 16' Racing Craft going 90 mph. There is no rehab for this, it is in your blood.

SVS, boating is a disease without a cure. Even when our wallets are on fumes we always find a way to get to boat in the water for a race or party weekend.
I too was hooked by your fathers and my uncles antics just a few years later than you. Not quite sure how my mom kept them from comepletly turning me to the dark side. I always said this is all their fault, now I realize you are too blame just as much.
GTMM will be a new chapter in performance boating. Hopefully you guys build a houseboat as well, as I may need one to live in when Diane kicks me out.

Default Houseboat

Well as you know Isabel was a Cigarette home boy/girl for 17 years. She is very happy i am back in the business-NOT. So I am working on that GTMM houseboat. Maybe you, me, Gio and Brownie can get back to basics and live like men are supposed too. In a Man cave or-
"In a Van down by the river eating Goverment issued cheese."

First, congratulations and best of luck in the new venture. Certainly sounds like the right people behind the scenes.
Second, what does GTMM stand for? I think I can guess the GT portion.
Third, when can we see some pics or sketches? All 3 models sound like winners in their respective markets, but a cut down 44 Magnum sounds ominous!

Cabin not plush enough, I want an enclosed head with real toilet that I can atleast sit in if not stand, I am 6'5" 220#'s. need gen and a/c. also. 3rd. No large padded sun pad. I didn't drive the boat but dont like the wrap around windsheild for the docking and rafting , I would like a big one to sit behinde but not on the sides. Make them go up and down like windows in a car would be nice. The OL GTX with 1/2 cabins fit my style better for a sit down boat.
This is the kind of feedback yall need. For my feedback I don't think the boat looks right with that bustle. I think a swim platform would look better. I like the full wrap windshield. How do you get on the foredeck to run lines and fenders? Is there room to walk on the sides or a big deck hatch?

I thought so too, but wasn't sure. The logo is all Magnum for sure. If so, is this the high performance subsidiary of Magnum Marine?

AMEN! Bustles belong on Cats. The Dragon/GTMM will be european version with a wraparound windshield, as far as I know.
