Between a Powerquest and Formula..... Formula.

Did the budget get raised?

I would think for $7-8000 more than the formula I posted your getting less boat. Not to knock powerquest at all I really like them I looked at a couple before I bought my formula and have a buddy that had a 260 legend. I may be biased tho

Default F271 In Rochester NY

2001 271, stock 496HO, less than 200 hrs, very clean, aluminum tandem axle
trailer. It's not really up for sale, but you never know, I could be convinced.

PM me for more details if interested.

I can't post pics, but cosmic12 will for me.

I know I get some BS fort his, but... Powerquests sits "bow high". They plow throught he water like Sea Rays. untill you get above 30'. Even then you have to look out from the starboard side to see where you going. I wouldn't touch a Baja if it's the last floating thing on the planet. I visited they factory years ago and I ran like hell. Some are ok. above 33'+ 38 specials are ok. Sorry to the Baja owners, just my .02. ok go and get after me... but get a better build boat. Formulas would be my choise, in the size you'r looking for. Bajas are faster but a lot lighter and the deadrise will make you sorry you sit in one. Forget running them in rough water. Baja owners will disagree, since they own one, but we mind as well help you and say it the way it is.
