Default Well she's home

It was a hell drive on very little sleep, pulling the 42 down and the 50 back, 2100 miles in 55 hours but I got it done. That was with a big drunk night out in Fort Myers and a sea trial thrown in.

I can't think of a better guy to deal with than Terry Sobo"Salesmanship" he caught a problem on the new trailer and had it taken care of before I was in any shape to tow it, put me and my bud up in a nice hotel, told me where the strip joints were. The only thing he wouldn't let me do is drive the Lambo, but if it was his I might of had a chance to drive it I'm glad I put the deal together with him I have been talking boats with him for 3 years we were just never on the same page at the same time but I feel I have a good toy for the next 3-5 years, Terry kept saying see you next year for the new one, but I don't know about that.

Man, that boat is HUGE. What in the world does it weigh? What do you tow it with? What power is in the boat? C'mon. Fill us in and post more pics when you get a chance! I am dying to see more of that beast! Oh yea, congratulations!

Default Awesome Lapse

Can't wait to see it on the Potomac. Is there a ramp close to you that will launch that much boat?
