First boat was a 1970 Larson with a 1985 Johnson 115 V-4. Pretty decent old boat for its age. Traded it on a 1986 211 Liberator with a 350 Mag; not the fastest thing on the water but a good cabin for a 21'.
Currently own a 1986 Formula 242LS with new twin 355's- not complete with break-in or final tuning yet. Top speed?
I'm Director of Maintenance for a corporate jet management firm in Chicago.

My 1st boat was a 79 Hurst bass boat with a 175 Johnson and a jack plate. I stripped any and all evidence of fishing gear, trolling motor etc. to cut weight and add speed. I paid all of $4,500 for it. I've now spent over 100K tryng to build something to catch it!
