Default If you could have what you want........

what would it be?

I think of this often and always struggle w/it.
For me, I like to trailer and have an ole faithful towpig that I do not want to replace and the day dream normally stops with that limitation.

So in my case, my dream boat includes a new diesel dually .....

I've pretty much had what I've wanted and am content where Im at but..........

Probably a 33' Powerplay O/B w/twin 300 XSs would be top of my list.

How bout you y'all??

36 OL SL36 with Merc Racing 565's, simple paint scheme and an aluminum trailer. Could absolutely care less about exotic power, just something that starts every time and has some spunk.

I want salt and water to both be non-corrosive to ALL metals. That one simple change would make my current boat and tow vehicle last the rest of my life.

Lady Lisa...slate grey with white and sliver accents...not a fan of CAT ACCERT power so most likely Yanmar power.

What great replies.

I love the diesels ideas.
If I was going big, that's what I'd do.
