You said "Ultimate", so here goes...

A friends 46 Skater that doesn't want any entry fees or gas money and will want to boat the same places I will.

Using the points off my credit card for a free week stay in a hotel room.

Good luck, at some point, cabin space, trailerability and reliability will all battle each other out for a more important spot on the wish list.

Yes , but how driveable is it ? Are you going to be able to take that Turbine powered boat out by yourself and head to the local bar/resturant ?

What about the big Fountain with the big deisels and Arneson drives?? It's fast, pretty roomy for a Fountain, and what is more reliable than deisels and surface drives??
