Default Newb Intro

First post ... tend to lurk and learn; long time jet boater with a new found interest in larger prop boats. Need to get some ducks in a row but expect to be in market for a 26-32 within the next year or so ... mostly for northern VA but plan to make trips to MI and KY as able.

I'm an engineer by education, still serving in military and have always been very hands on; I have gel'd two boats along with bottom work, stringer and floor replacements but know there is always lots to learn especially with the prospect of props, drives, trim tabs and etc!

Cheers

Our first boat was a 27' Fountain Fever. Stock 502mpi with Bravo drive. Very easy to trailer and ran 70mph, which was perfect for our local river boating. Served us well for 3 years. ...until the 3foot-itis started creeping in. Then we went to a 35' Fountain Lightning. Now the 42.

Good luck!

Math must not be your strong suit Terry.
