Ideally, something older in the 35-38 range. Realistically, our next boat will probably be a 28-30 single, most likely a 288 Sunsation. Slight chance for a 28' Pantera if I could find the right one at the right time.

Ideal: A paid for one. So, something radio controlled most likely.

Potential:
37 Outerlimits, maybe Wildthings if I can't find something in the next few seasons.

Next boat will be a big jump for me, I am going to hold out for a 36 Spectre or 36 Eliminator, shoot for the 600-700hp range per motor. That will probably take at least 2-3 more years, with allot of variables going my way.

I'm going to keep my '76 Donzi Classic forever...but, in the next year or two I plan on picking up a bigger classic to... Either a 27 Magnum or 28 Cig SS - With Twin stock(ish) smallblocks. If I find a significant amount of money in that time - then a New 28 Pantera w/ twins.

Interesting seeing what everyone else is planning on - obviously many of us are in very different positions in our boating career's

Something with 525efi's ... gotta be able to turn key it any day ... doesn't matter how much money you have, a boat that won't run is no fun.

Should run 90+

Don't need no stinkin' cabin

Prefer standup

Must have great pedigree

She must be pretty ... and trick

Hell ... I may as well keep what I have and go buy a Ferrari
