Headed to HAVASU to pick up our new BOAT!!

Jen and I leave for Havasu this thursday.

We're picking up our new (to us) boat!!

After selling the Cig, I didn't know how I could top that boat, we loved every minute of owning it, but I think we may have come close.
We're shifting gears a bit here, but the size and speed of this new boat will fit in our plans just right.
You may have seen it before in a magazine or two, in fact it's on the back cover of the latest Powerboat mag if you have it.

Although it may be "unstable" by design, and built west of Denver we absolutely love this boat. It is difficult to find ANY negative press about these boats (other than on this board), so we are very confident in our purchase.
It's a DCB F-29 with 580 cubic inch Larry Peto motors (mild at 650 hp) and IMCO SC drives.
It should be pretty quick and fast with the right props.



So, anyone heading out to Havasu this Friday or Saturday morning, stop by the Agave Inn at Havasu City and say hi!!

We'll be in this:

I don't know if this will work, but here is a short video of it running on Havasu:

Come on up to Lake Mead Watch out in Havasu, they have been cracking down on the noise levels and handing out tickets like candy there, to the tune of $120.00. You should have a blast, head to the "sand bar" and see the sights

Great looking boat! Where do you boat in Kansas? You need to bring it down to Oklahoma so I can check it out.

Hey bud I LIVE for the dark side!!!

Dark side, I'm still LMFAO!!!

Thanks for the kind words everyone, we are cranked!

As far as the noise goes, it has Gatlin mufflers built in to the tailpipes.
It is supposed to be really quiet at idle.
