Hell, I think the guy should just stick with the Bravo's, blow them up and keep replacing them so that the resident experts on this bord can sleep at night.

Has anyone ever blown the asd # 6 ? The guys at Arneson do not seem like they would steer me wrong. If they would have told me to go bigger I would have.

All the experts here have been giving this guy hell over the Arneson's. Too small? Some suggested that they would fail but didn't back it up with facts.

My friend has one of these on his 24í Eliminator with a 900 hp blower motor. Never broke it yet, broke many Bravo's prior though. His only regret is that he built his boat prior to this Bravo conversion.

If he (this guy) had laid out his intentions with a Bravo everyone would have supported his decisions. But if you donít think the Arneson will survive, how do you think the Bravo will?

Besides the fact that I donít anyone here has any experience with the package he has chosen.

Good advise or bad, what does anyone know about the ASD6 or the ASD8?

congrats shawn, randy is an excellent guy plus a real good friend of mine, glad you got a good deal he is one of the few guys that gives an honest deal in florida. maybe we will catch up to you in the bay

Slingshot, I agree with you.
Randy and I struck what I think was a fair deal for both of us. We were realistic as to the value of both boats and the deal went off without a hitch. For this I credit Randy, he made the whole process enjoyable. He took my boat in trade based on pictures and descriptions of the condition and also I told him everything that was wrong with the boat. Neither one of us
B.S.ed the other. He will sell my old boat for the amount he and I discussed or he may even get a few thousand more. I am happy with my end of the deal too.

Michael, this 36 runs the exact same speed as the 30 did with identical power. Lookiong forward to a good summer and glad you are ready to go too.
Take care and see you on the BAY

hey boatless wonder, a guy posts that he is building a 36 with arneson's, people offer their opinions and if he doesnt like it well maybe he shouldnt post, I guess, like myself who has experience with bravo's, arneson's and # 6's I was trying to save the guy some AG by putting less of a drive then I THINK he should but thats just my opinion. GET OVER IT
