Four Winns are very good boats; I loved the old Liberator we used to own.
Definitely take a look at Larsons. They have a very nice lineup, and the quality is high.
We have an old Stingray ('85) up in Canada- a 19' bowrider that is built like a brick shi t house. The new ones have been lightened WAY up, but are getting very impressive speed numbers. You can hit 60 with a v-6 equipped boat.
Celebrity and Crownline are all over the place in this area and all the owners speak highly of them. I have driven a newer Ebbtide that seemed well built too.
Way too many choices in this market.... I have new power in the old Stingray, so we're keeping it!

We know people that own Fourwinns and Crownlines. They are pretty nice boats and the owners all seem to be happy with them.

Good luck and have fun shopping.

Thanks for all the input guys, any idea what speed
the four winns would run with the 305 ?
As far as the regal goes,they have some huge steps,
I hear they will run almost 60 with a 4.3, holy CHIT!
My wife and kid are going to drive it,so I want something
they don't have to work at to drive.
