Just saying.

I think he was just talking in general?? Since I posted this I mentioned a few times that I was doing research and wasn't buying till next season but I still got hammered by "buy my boat" posts. I definitely don't mind looking to see what they offer and what the price and features are but unless someone is going to finance me personally (which will never happen) we don't have the cash right now for a big down payment. Paying off the wifes car with my bonus and using income tax as some down on a boat. Hell I don't even know if a bank will finance an older boat?!?!

I do thank EVERYONE for their input, info and pictures!!!!

scratch my post where i say im done, and deiselweisel said atleast 4 TIMES he is NOT ready to buy, so I do not know why people are advertising there boats that will be gone in no time at all,, and he won't even remember because there are so many others out their.....he said he has the "best deal" which I know he doesn't because there are soo many that his isn't, there aare millions of boats for sale, his is not the best deal
Just saying..... how about instead of advertising our boats, we say here is a good boat, or tell about the boats instead of saying hey look at my boat i will sell to you at this price...... thats just being pushy, also he said he doesn't want a boat accross the country, yet lots of people post them.


I didn't even see your post deisel lol well anyway mines still here I guess

I would however LOVE to own your boat. The colors are sweet, the cabin is sweet, its all around just 80s awesome!!! Plus its probably fast as hell??
You wanna finance and I will take it right now! HAHA!

Anyone know what a Piranha is? There is a pretty sweet looking one going @ a repo auction! Its a 35' with twin 454 crusader inboard engines....?
I would assume it is some pro ski boat if it has inboards, or an express cruiser, but most ski boats are small I beleive.

Here is the Piranha... http://www.repocast.com/details.cfm?ID=594775

Are inboards better then IO?? I know that Malibu advertises that they get up and moving better and faster and have little to no bow rise issues like and IO... Wouldnt that be good?? Well although i guess if it was offshore racers would use them huh? HAH

Inboards through less wake, when docking its less wheel turning and more shifting, actually no wheel turning needed with inboards, they do not turn as sharp as IO's and have lss moving parts.....I love IO's
