Straight from the plant - the "classic" 35 with the plastic windscreen is now being called the Executioner. They had a nice one on display at the races. The glass-in-frame windshield one is still the Lightning.

Mark - Thanks for giving me something to look forward to when my next Powerboat issue gets here!

Jana, to help you out/dream even more it really looks sweet, you will like it i am sure.

Yes, $149,995*
$948/mo**
*
** of course they have these, (limited number made, 20% down, blah blah blah......)

BTW, do you all like the windshields in the frame, I cant stand them and think they kinda make it look like a "cruiser" style boat/windshield, but of course it aint my money soooooo buy what you like.

Default What Motors ?

What motors and amenities do you get for the $149,995. Sounds kind of like an Earl Schide commercial "I'll paint any car for $49,95"

Hey 105mph! What graphics and where do you keep your boat? Bet I'll see on the lake sometime. My 29 Fever's in the barn at Parkside on NASA 1. Are you a TOPPS member?

If you're looking next season, keep an eye on Marker 1 that's going up next to Marine Max - rumored to be VERY nice when it's done. Also, they have broken ground for a dry stack place near Portofino, just off the Clear Creek Channel, where the Stargazer goes out of. There will be more choices soon!
On the subject of clean - I have a full cover (beak to transom, down to the rail) and the boat stays plenty clean. I'm just careful to wash off all the salt before I put her away.
Your boat sounds very nice and sophisitcated.
