Times a changin.
Honestly most of us use or speed boats like cruisers. Hanging out in the bay all day, then sleep at the bar/dock at night.

To me, that is just a waste

35/38 Sonic or 40 Hustler Fiore fits our needs, just couldn't find the right deal this year.

Got a decent deal on the cruiser and it is paid for. Really got exhausted of boat shopping all winter long, more bad than good out there under $125k IMO.

Taking a break, but I will be back. It does have a big block with bravos.......think she would notice if I put big power in it? hahahah

And please, wave when you pass me and rev the engines in memory of a fallen go fast guy

What are you going to get?

flame away! 27 Ft of fun powered by one 330hp bravo one spinning a 17p SS mirage prop! Whoa............

Was amazed what can be done with only 27ft of space compared to a go fast.

Sorry, its a crownline 268 CR....whatever the hell that means

When I asked the dealer what the top speed was he said "Does it really matter?" I put my tail back between my legs and stopped talking, as my he and wife talked about how to go about changing the curtain colors.

Guys.....it really hurts

LMAO

4bus.... they are nice units. My dad has a 210ccr and is looking at a 290CR, or a 330SS formula. So much space in those boats, and gotta love the genny and air. I figure I can plug my shorepower into him and he can be the mother ship.
