I'm starting to look now too
took 5 years to find my exact desired 336 ( 1 of 5 built with 525sc's in 95.)

my perfect formula is a 40ss ( or maybe 370) with blue motors and surface drives. I can trade off some speed for the coolness of the rooster tail. and the marina life seems intriguing to me.
would be a fun project to convert to arnesons, but afraid the cost will be prohibitive......

Since we didn't have alot of time sat we never would have taken the Cigarette out and would have missed this.

Best of both worlds.

I have one friend who has a 400ss and Gladiator and he has the best of both worlds.Time for each, that is a different story.

C-Spray and another friend of mine will probably own one soon because they are a good blend of speed and comfort.
In fact, my other friend who will remain nameless is selling a very fast cat and plans on doing the 400ss and ZrComp combo.
One at a time. Wish I could have a Gun an a 40ss. Maybe one day. Artie
