Yes,
John we met earlier this year I think regarding a 125 Apt. unit project in MA.

What I meant about running in the ocean was to make sure you have a first class ocean boat like the brands miller mentioned, some brands are less expensive to purchase size wise but tend to suffer badly in what the ocean can dish out. By suffer I mean they will require more maintenance and so forth, screws coming loose, hinges loosening, doors openning...

You are in the right spot to get all the information you need here, you might want to get a gold or platinum membership to get all the massive information this site can dish out.

Give me a call John if you want 802-734-8284.

john gov.

You are gonna get alot of opinions here, so here's one more...

I am currently selling my 22-foot boat because I want/need bigger. I have done alot of searching, and my #1 choice (right now) would be:

Sean's 35-foot Cafe Racer (Cigarette)

Once I sell my boat, I will take a trip to see his boat (if it is still available).

Good luck!

I've been doing a lot of research on powerboats and ended up buying a new Donzi. I noticed that most of the recomendations include Fountain, Formula, Panterra, Apache and of course Cig.

Did I miss something when I went with the Donzi?

I am starting to get some post-purchase remorse/concern.

Seans Cafe Racer is your boat Jon Gov.

Just Add Water: Donzi builds a fine machine. I would have a Donzi before a few of the other suggestions.

Oh man, I gotta learn a whole bunch of new stuff...Tall Decks, Team G intakes, 1050 Dominators, CMI exhaust. I'm way back at Holley carburators, and Osco manifolds, and that was a step up from genoas and boom vangs.
I've learned more of how much more I need to learn... here in just one day.

I see the TRS drives mentioned in many ads. Is that a brand other than Mercury?
What are the thoughts regarding beam to length? I see a lot of 8'4" beam and some 10' within the same overall length. Do some manufacturers use overall length while others use waterline length in their specs?
Finally, I've got an old computer on a phone line but the classified section here seems to load real slow. Am I doing something wrong.
Thank you, John Gov.

John TRS is TRansmission Sport. It's the prebravo drive that has a transmission to shift rather than a clutch in the drive itself.

A lot of debate on which is better. Still has parts available for both the drive and transmissions from several sources.

Here you see a coupler instead of the transmission already bolted to the back of the engines for use with the Bravo drives
