Default Keep working on Baja or get Pantera?

Hey guys I have a 87 240 Baja. Its all upgraded including a Bravo 1 drive. Its got custom paint, interior, Gafrig throttle, Tube swim platform, Gil Headers and Motor work. Its close to were I want it. I still want to add full hydralic steering and K-Planes. That is going to cost over 7 grand with me doing to work. I went to the Camden Race and fell in love with the Pantera 28! How much better is the ride with a Pantera. I'm thinking about selling the Baja and putting the upgrade money towards a used Pantera. It looks like most of the Panteras already have upgraded steering and tabs. What do you think? I want to run either boats in the mid 70's. And I Boat in the Delaware River. Thanks in advance.

You'll be much happier with the bigger boat, and get more back for your time and money that upgrading the old one. Plus, it's always MUCH more fun to get something new in your life.

Sale that Baja!!! The Pantera will hold a better resale than the baja and you will be able to go through water you could only dream of going in that Baja. The Pantera is custom built which means a lot more attention to detail and craftsmanship than a mass produced boat.

The Pantara is a 24 degree deadrise and your 240 is like a 21 or 22. There is no comparison in the ride in rough water. Plus I think your wasting your money investing in the old Baja you won't get it out of it when you sell it. Also you are already thinking about moving up, so it'll be just a matter of time now.

I went from a 89 Sport 240 to a Pantera 28. And never looked back.
