Well, since it's winter in Michigan, time to rekindle this thread and see if anyone has new input. Sit down poker run boat, which do you choose? Or do you go with something different?

It raced in the US for a couple of seasons before it came to Europe so most of these guys knows that boat a lot better than we do !
