After reading the many comments here, I'd now have to agree that Matt was spot on in his article.
Spot on about the outboard power, I have twin 250's on mine, on a good day, hit 80, consistent 77/78, and engines are warrantied for more then 7 minutes, I found it to be a good trade off

There would be more choices than just center consoles if more boat makers got out of the "fast out of the hole" concept and went back to more solid deep vee hulls.

Something like this still interests me, whether here in the icebox, or in Florida.

The other thing is I rarely want a bunch of people in my boat, I am anti social that way.
Dont let the big block thing stop you. I think Brian AKA "THEJOKER" can build you a CC with big blocks.

Yep, I'm looking to downsize to a 30 -32 CC. Actually want to get back into fishing. Really.

Any CC owners looking to trade up shoot me a PM.

Our CC is our "bread and butter" boat. 50 hours a year on the Cig....and close to 200 hours a year on the CC.

Thanks to Terry Sobo , my wife is in a frantic search for a bigger CC . It's not EVER going to replace the thrill of a Go-Fast....but it's one hell of a cheap alternative as a secondary boat!!
