Default Traded for a Center Console

I have to say getting rid of my boat has been a lot harder than I would have thought. Its supposed to be the 2nd happiest day of boat ownership???? Not for me.

Boat is on its way to Oregon and coming back is a nice family cruiser, so my wife and kids can start to enjoy boating with me on a more regular basis. I thought about being a two boat owner but after talking to some people on the board, I decided because of our short season in upstate NY it would be in my best interest to get a CC that seems to be very versatile.

The deal has gone great with Tim from Oregon Custom Marine. He was always there to answer all my questions, and trust me I have had alot.

Tim has gone above and beyond when it came to customizing the boat to my liking. Stereo, GPS, and LED's all were done on site and they look great. (I had to play with this thing a little bit).

After being beat up and dissappointed by so many other people that operate buisness's in the boat industry, It was nice to deal with a straight shooter that was all about the customer.

Cheers to growing up and going slow.

Hey Carguy08,

Congratulations on the new boat, I guessing you got the one with the 350s. Very nice looking boat. I was wondering how you are handling the towing of that boat with the beam being over 8'6"? I know you can get permits, but for regular towing what would you do?

P.S. Post some completed photos.

Are you and "Chuck" both going from 36 NT Cats (both orange/blue) to 36 Spectre CC's, both living in the Northeast, or am I going crazy?

You are going crazy.

Thought at first these two turn-coats were losing it also. Now it seems sensible and admirable.

That being said, keep them things out of the way of the fast boats !!
