Baja much more space, and cabin, but slower
That 32 is really a 29 don't forget!
Plus being a 93 it will be much harder to sell it when you want to move up!
Good Luck
I simply have to fix my measuring tape! It keeps measuring my Johnson at 12 inches too...on second thought I think I'll keep it as is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I are fountain owners. Have a 32 with 500HP's. Had a 272 Baja.(Nice boat). We liked our Baja, but truly love our Fountain. You have the comfortable ride plus speed when you want it. Good luck, hope you find another one.

Johnny,
Who was wishy washy? The owner or surveyor?
If the owner is getting maybe you should pass. Better to err on the side of caution. I know I was a little pi$$ed after I got back a "questionable" survey after spending $325 for the survey and driving 7 hrs each way plus gas , tolls , motel and meals, but I figured it could have saved me a lot more in the long run
And besides...if I couldn't afford the extra $325...I couldn't afford the boat .
Did learn a lot. Used the survey to check out the next one myself. Carefully examined all the bad spots from the first boat. Got myself a real "Creampuff".
Oh , btw ,I looked for over 9 months to find mine. And looked at some real $hitters along the way.

the owner was scared to have it surveyed, red flag. but he is telling me now a guy in new york offered 12.000 more than asking price.B.S the guy didnt have a survey done. the guy that bought it probily bought a money pitt, since the owner was scared of a survey.

Steve, that is a beautiful boat. Is a 40' hull a 42' without the swim platform? What year is it, 88? It looks brand new! I am hoping to keep mine looking that good. Lots of wax and lots of rubbing.
