My 'ol 260 is pretty hi on my list of fun boats. Most certainly was not a performer in just about any sense of the word. It was just one of those boats that did everything it did right. Comfortable, reliable, not awful to look at, maybe its because it was my first boat with twins and when i really started doing long weekends on the water. Would get on the boat friday afternoon and just bounce around friends marinas for the weekend rarely more then a few miles from my own dock, i would just transient wherever i ended up. Just had a lot of fun on this thing. My ScarabIII is filling in very nicely but i still have a soft spot for that 'ol Scorp. Whats really nice is the new owner has picked up the torch nicely and has even trailered her down to Lake Cumberland a few times. I'm sure the boat enjoyed thet

Funny thing is that my favorite boat ain't even a boat.
It's my and my sons built GPR1300R jet skis.
The power to weight ratio is huge, top end is scary fast, the acceleration is wicked, and they'll turn on a dime.
In the right water they rule, in the wrong water you have to back out or they'll buck you off like a bullrider at the rodeo.

See ya,
Kelly

Windsurfer number 2. Almost free because I was so well sponsored (free sails, masts, etc), so I could go out surfing until I broke everything I had with me. I made hundreds of the first thousand Windsurfer sails.

As someone said: the cheapest boat I ever owned. Most fun per dollar, and most fun per amount of work and screwing around.

My 20ft Cig...most fun per foot of any boat I have and had. Hard to explain, not the fastest, nor offshore capabie, or comfortable, no head, no bs...just a blast to drive and ride around in.

2002 PQ 380 is awesome! 1999 PQ 290 was a good boat and good times. 1990 Baja 235 DVX I had a blast in, it was great to start up at dock and watch the people jump!
