The boat will be between So Cal and Clear Lake mostly...We do have a few trips planned to FL to visit friends. I feel like a little kid that wants to take his new toy everywhere

105, what are the specs on the 39? Sit down, full cabin or half, epoxy, what is the weight? I believe it is a quad step, is it similar to the 37?

I've seen some nice work from PRI (Performance Research Inc.) in Ohio. I have 2 friends running them, they hold up well.

Volvo??? Yanmar?

Really, just kidding.

After my recent balst across Lake Michigan in Ancestoral Spirit, I like the Cheif engines Parnel has in his boat. Ran flawlessly.

Three firends of mine are running Chief and they are perfect - and have been from day 1. One running 850's, one running 650's and one running 950's. Flawless work!!

Spectre with Yanmars = 98+ MPH. B-max'z I think?? awesome fuel economy, but it does sound a bit weird at the doks...

Although I have no experience with them, in all my years on this site, I've never heard one thing bad about Chief engines. Nothing but praise for their set-ups. I'll definitely consider them when I buy my next boat. They're also a sponsor here.
