I also as odd as it sounds do not want a lot of room....like i said 5 with me would be MAX and more time than not it will be me and my Gf and that's it.

My last boat had lots of room so ALL friends wanted on. That boat was TRASHED in no time. It may sound rude but i dont care for others on my boat or room for them. Me and my GF are all my concerns are for.[/QUOTE]

I love it... That's why I bought the Avanti..

The only thing we have to have is a cabin but a small one as she has a HUGE fear of lightning so if we get caught in a storm.that's were she will be.

To me that space is for nothing more than storage and......well maybe.....you know. So i don't care if it has walking room or not as long as it has enough to shelter her and maybe "satisfy" me.

The 280 Velocity in Ft. Worth TX is mine, it is stored inside a totally closed storage unit in Mead Oklahoma real close to Lake Texoma. We use it on that lake because we like to boat there.

I can ship it to U but an extra cost or bring it back to Ft. Worth at no extra cost. If interested let me know. I lowerd the price from 31,400 to the 29,800 - would like to sell it but do not need to fire sell it. It will sell at that price someday or may even put it on Ebay soon with a reserve price.

Thanks for the interest and good luck with whatever you buy. I am very open to any or all boat survey's and mechanical inspections at your expense - just give me heads up if you want to move forward with any of this.

If i find one with low hrs and in the high $20k price range then i might make a move but that is exactly were the Velocity or most that i see are and like i said i prefer the style of the Velocity over the OL.

Just wanted to say i was in this same situation earlier this year and i went with the velocity and after having it for a while im glad i got it!

I guess I am odd also

I would take a Velocity over a Baja any day, not bashing Baja, just personal preference after actually running both, and working on them.
