Cash if you think u might be interested in this one I can get in touch with the owner and get the details on it for you, he just got it brand new...the story behind the boat is here:

This is the new boat:

very first one shown.

Good luck man, if you want me to get some more details on that boat so you have them, please let me know. Might be able to save a few $ over new when the boat only has just a handful of hours.

Greg, that didnt take you to long to get the itch for a new boat,

Good luck on your search

I would go with a t/s Gun with a cover girl cabin for the storage and to "take care of Business" when you have company. A Gladiator would be the perfect 2nd boat for Poker Runs IMOP.

I had the same trouble trying to decide.After researching and talking to countless people,I went with the Gladiator.I do not miss the cabin,love sitting versus standing and have no regrets.I had several Topguns prior,and hoped I was not making a mistake.They are both awesome boats,but my vote has to go with the Gladiator.

I've also noticed the gladiator is about 100k less than a TG, just a ballpark roundabout number...but a big one at that.

Regardless, both are sweet but having a cabin whether you actually sleep in it (which we don't) or not is a very, very handy feature my friend. Never know when ya' might find ya' a Georgia PEACH
Hey Dano,
how did that swim platform work for you?? Do you have any pics??

I love my T/S Gun. It runs low to mid 80's with 500's depending on conditions and will run through some nasty water.

I also like the Gladiators and I came real close to buying one. My only concern with the Gladiator would be dry storage. I owned cats before the Gun so the issue of standing versus sitting would not be an issue imo.

If I were to go with a Gladiator I would have to have something under the deck for storage. I thought about the idea of a net secured to the under side of the deck. Something to think about.
