I HAVE LOOKED ALL MAKES AND MODELS AND BEEN IN THEM ALL AS WELL WHERE ELSE CAN YOU GO FOR A RIDE IN 3-4 FOOTERS AND NOT SILL YOUR COCKTAIL LOL ONLY IN A OL SO FOLLOW THE LEADER
If you are interested I would be more than happy to take you out for a ride in a AT. I think it is the boat that you get alot for your money. Not so sure about the 3-4's without spilling your drink, but i am sure you will be amazed at the ride and handling of the boat.

BoJoe2,
Why don't we try and organize a test drive / race for your purchase money? Have everyone who has a boat you are interested in meet this Sunday in Boca Lake. I'll bring the Gladiator, anyone else who has a boat for sale bring theirs. They take you for a ride, you drive each, then choose which one is to be delivered. Also if anyone is interested in a 1987 Porsche 959 with under 13k miles let me know
Handy

High performance boats represent a very small portion of the overall boating market. Now, if you take a boat that is outrageously priced to begin with and eliminate all amenities and praticality, you've just created a niche in an otherwise small market. It might be fine for the select few who just want to hot rod around with nothing more than storage space for their wallets, but those are few and far between. I suspect the prices will eventually reflect that factor.

the reason everbody is buying hummers is because somebody found a loop hole in the law and they are 100% deductible. actually if done right they will actually pay you to buy the damm thing. thats why all the layers and docters and everbody else in the high tax bracket bought and and will continue to due so untill they kill that loop hole.

really not a loop hole...it was created for these gas guzzlers....

"The plan would mean small businesses could immediately deduct the entire price of S.U.V.'s like the Hummer H2, the Lincoln Navigator and the Toyota Land Cruiser, even if the vehicles were loaded with every available option. Or a business owner, taking full advantage, could buy a BMW X5 sport utility vehicle for a few hundred dollars more than a Pontiac Bonneville sedan, after the immediate tax deductions were factored in.

Tax experts and environmentalists say the plan would provide incentives for businesses to choose the biggest gas-guzzling trucks because it takes several years to depreciate the cost of passenger cars and smaller sport utility vehicles. "

seems to me like the people that would spend <200K have been really affected by the market(be it loss of money or confidence)..i know i have....the people looking at the 300K range boats could care less...probably the same ones that sat back and watched all the yahoo's, like myself, trading very aggressively....
