23' Rinker
29' Fountain
30' Baja 302
29' Baja 29 OL
34' Baja 342

I'm actually ready to downsize. Have family lake houses in MI and TN with boats at each. Then my 34' Baja on the Ohio River. Tired of the gas, maintenence, storage, trailering hassles with a larger boat.

I may just get a pontoon with a big OB or 2. I can just leave in a slip and pressure wash it once or twice a summer.

Something like this...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2004-...item256765b888

'21 Cuddy w/SBF
24 Superboat w/BBC
30 Superboat w/BBC

I'm happy with my current boat and don't think I will ever get a bigger boat. Not a trailerable boat anyway. I guess if I did it again, I would of skipped the 24 and went straight to the 30.

I let the wife read all these posts so she could see the "normal trend" and she said she wants to go bigger too!!
Really!!! I don't think shes talking about a boat.

In order over last 32 years
24 / 200hp OB
21 / 260hp IO
17 / 140hp OB
21 /500hp IO
27 /575hp IO

Honestly unless I hit the lotto and can afford
to pay someone else to do the maintenence I will
never own a twin engine I/O boat so Im stuck
around 27-29ft as being the biggest i can go in a sportboat..

Yeah - when I first bought my Cafe home I thought it was the biggest boat in the world and looked HUGE sitting beside the house. Same thing with the dually - thought it was the biggest truck in the world.

Now - I dream of the day I can go bigger on both accounts, but I know it is YEARS off....
