The economy is going back up! Trouble with performance boats is, so is the INSURANCE! I'm almost ready to trade into a center console Contender.

I was talking to PQ yesterday and they are jammed with orders right now. They are very busy and VERY happy right now.
I have also been looking for a Top Gun and they are sold as soon as they are traded in.
