Vagrant...did you have to go and tell me about the hot dog thing. My wife saw that and now she refers to it as the Hot Dog boat. Oh boy, I think that may be a deal breaker.
I have not even gotten to the drives.

I have been trying to get some history on that exact boat, and particularly that model. I must say its not what I expected.
Oh well never know.

mmo joe, send me an email with your asking price and options. Maybe not me , but I have a friend considering one here locally.
I will try to help ya.

JB,
Hey man, the boat is solid and one nice boat, dont let that be the reason you dont buy.The drives were my only thing that I had questioned. I have recently found that those particular drives are built well and hold up to the power fine,you just have to know its limitations as with any boat. My first choice is a Blackthunder that we have found. We are looking for cabin space more than anything,and not have the look of a cruiser.Good Luck.
David

Same as us, Just not the budjet for a Black Thunder(or atleast none that I have seen)
I was never a fan of the trs. I know its not a bad drive and very strong and would suit me just fine. But I just want the newer technology.
Wife still needs to see the boat in peson.
Maybe the 1000 Islands poker run will help us find a boat this weekend.
Thanks Vagrant

JB,
Good luck boat hunting let me know what you find.I have been looking at all kinds of boats. This Black Thunder has really struck my eye, I'M hoping to get the ball rolling soon I think that the salesmen thinks I bs ing him because I have waited so long.He is in for a surprise. I will let you know how it turns out.Be sure to let me know what boat you are thinking about I have looked at so many I should know something about it lol.

Three summers ago I ran across someone looking for the same type boats I was. It worked out well. He found me my Scarab!
