DAVE P, post #44 of this thread was quite interesting in my eyes. I am not sure PQ and SUNSATION are entry level, especially the bigger ones.
Thanks for the compliment Bryan.

Sure am looking forward to seeing that bigger Sunsation.....in the HRPA

And size does matter! Exactly what size Donzi or Sonic are we talking about here?

I didn't want to offend anyone with the "entry level" blah blah blah.

No offense was meant to anyone, but the bottom line is "it is what it is".

There is a reason why some cars are $20k, $50k, $80k or $120k. You get what you pay for.

The $20k car is great if someone is looking for VALUE.
The $50K-$80k car is great for someone who wants superior workmanship.
The $120k car is for someone who wants THE BEST OF THE BEST!

Am I wrong?

Let me take it one step further:

New Baja 36 Outlaw = $175k
New Cigarette 38 Top Gun = $330k
New 37 Outerlimits = $425k

Different prices just because of the name? Not quite.

Again - you get what you pay for. And there is nothing wrong with owning a Baja, Powerquest, Sunsation etc. They are great boats that provide alot of VALUE for the $$$$$.

Queit Storm, The 38ZR was designed years before the Gladiator they have been working and refineing the 38ZR since 1999. And what a great riding boat it is!

Frank, you and Melissa and the kids need to plan a weekend here in VA this summer at our place!
(Tell your son's we do have a shotgun!)
The teenage boyfriend thing is killing me...

Bring the boat too, maybe we will see one of the MD Sonic's on the bay and check it out.....
The HRPA would love to host you guys.

DAVEP has a point, a 38ZX is only about $270K with 525's. Good analogy overall.

(Frank, called, got the machine, lets catch up soon.)

No offense taken Dave. I think you nailed it. I really wanted a 33ZX with HP's, but could not justify the extra $50K! Top Gun.....forgetaboutit!!

I am happy with what I have. That's all that matters.

It's a great thing to be able to do exactly the same thing and at times better, for so much less....
