Hi Tank,
I was just reading one of your blogs and the thought came to me about your day job.

You have one of neatest side jobs I can think of, traveling around the different venues, riding in and blogging about some of the coolest boats around.

But how do you work this out with your regular job? I believe I heard you were a police officer? Do you have the best boss in the country? Just curious? Dan

I burn up a lot of my own time. I've also just taken up advertisement sales for Powerboat as well but writing and selling ads for PBM is like a vacation from my day job.

Tank thanks for sharing. Never got an opportunity to check this beauty out.. I prefer the convertable version of this red 80 vs the top on the blue yacht.

This boat is not for sale but we'd be happy to build another just like it.
Ballpark "list price" 4.9.

I've never made it onto the blue hard top but would like to see the differences first hand. I like the look of the hard top because it seems truer to a "yacht" look and I assume it'd be nice to stay out of the wind for long runs. I also like the open air feel of the convertable and the feeling of a roomy, open air cockpit. Having run the red one, I'll just need to find my way onto the blue one to get a first hand opinion between the two!

Terry, can you set that up please??
