Default Holes in the water we've owned

I am sure it has been done on here but maybe get a fresh take on it. Dig into your memory banks and list the boats you have owned, or at least the ones you can remember.

16' MFG with a 40hp Johnson

17' Hydrostream with a 200 Black Max

19' Cobia cuddy with a 4.3 OMC Cobra

25' IMP with a 330hp 454/Bravo

25' IMP with a 502/Bravo

31' IMP with twin 454's/Bravos

14' Seadoo Speedster with twin 720's

18' Hydrostream Vking with a 2.5 Merc

SR-1 292 Formula with twin 502's/Bravos

42' Fountain with triple 675hp 548's/Bravos

another 14' Seadoo Speedster with twin 720's

18' Seebold Eagle tunnel with a 150 Merc Optimax

19' Bayliner Trophy CC with a 200 Merc Optimax


Currently still own the Fountain and the Bayliner CC.

27' Pachanga twin 502's

A few runabouts including Pride, Caribbean, Haines, Signature, Swifcraft.

Everything down to my first power boat pictured below. (A little embarrassing)

I'm sure I've missed a couple but my next boat is always the best one!

14' Sportcraft bow rider, 75hp Merc to an 85hp Force (a poor "upgrade", may I add)

Checkmate 21' Entertainer, 200hp 2.4 Merc to a 2.4 Bridgeport and back again.


14' Aerocraft, 1957 Johnson 7.5 Sea Horse

24' Crest pontoon, 50hp Johnson


PowerPlay 185XLT, 260 Mercruiser/Alpha



Stingray 230SX, 496 Mag/Bravo



Jaws/Lorequin 24' CC, 3.0L 250hp Merc
Progression 24' High Deck, 3.4L 275hp Merc



There's probably one or two that I've forgotten... But I think I'm going to stick with this Progression for a while.

Progression boats have a great line to them, a bit old school but that Powerplay looks sweet! Any more pics?

A few... It's definitely a boat I miss from time to time. Super easy to tow, easy to launch and load alone, high 50's, 24* deadrise. I may own another someday, but it's the only I/O on my radar. This is a Michigan PowerPlay, before the lawsuit/name change to Powerquest.

Speedracer29, I'm gonna steal this photo from you and post it the next time I see someone having a dig at pontoon boats.
If I lived on a nice placid lake or river, I'd own a toon with a bar, some lounges, an eggbeater and a thatched Bimini top!
How good would that be?
