All in all a great raceboat if you don't intend on racing it.


Jay has no wife or kids

Jay is not racing the boat, so he can slow down to turn it.

"expert"...Really? Who relys on the rub rail to dock their 100K boat????

All in all, he's not racing the boat, but it sure is a hot rod on the water!

Jay this Gladiator is getting RAVE reviews,,,,,,I would look closer!

Not sunk
Not re-done
NOT USED ENOUGH!

Spinning or rolling a stepped boat for pleasure use seems to be over hyped IMO. A little common sense goes a long way. Other than the guys boating in smaller rivers and lakes, who needs to make hard fast turns anyway??? I mean honestly, with open water (where a boat like this should be let loose), would anyone need to be ripping at the wheel at WOT? Can you not see another boat from miles away??? And even if you have to make a hard turn, can't a little common sense be used???

I agree, but I'd guess he probably wouldn't be interested in taking Jay's boat on trade.

The Pier 57 boat is very nice as well, and I suspect can be bought at an attractive price.

jay find out what they will give you towards a trade, put your boat on the market at a retail figure and as time goes by, if the boat doesnt sell, keep lowering your asking price until you get to their trade in figure. if it still hasnt sold just trade it in.

I like the colors etc., but don't like that it's not staggered and with "Blue" motors. What's your opinion....good and bad. Thanks!
Nice looking boat... i think the price is good..

Thanks for all the kind words. I really feel that the first person who actually takes the time to look at this boat in person, would be blown away. In the meantime, I will just keep it. I will have to spend another $200K to get something else nicer, and for my boating on the lake, it is just hard to justify. I had owned 2 TopGuns at the same time and do not want to be a 2 boat owner again. On the other hand, I can just keep it and save myself a bundle.
