I dont get the animosity towards them, I love the sound of a big block and the looks of a go fast but I want the practicality of a center console with outboards, I understand there not for everyone especially the guys that live on lakes up north, I would like to fish with my son and maybe get into diving, I too am sick of hanging upside down in a bilge with my hand contorted in a position that it should'nt be in, look forward to the ease of outboards.

I hear ya but I think in many cases in the quest to have the biggest fastest coolest people bite off more than they can chew....look at my old lad...it may be old but I can afford it if it brakes...and I can let it sit....I know people who if it rains for a couple of weekends they are making such high payments that they start freaking out and want to sell it......D

Glasstreams are stepped. 71-72 gps on a good day with 93 octane. Like I said before cc for no stress comfort. Cat for my 130 go fast fix. Works for me and many other go fast friends. Try it you may like it.
