I have alot of knowledge of Cigarettes and other boats. Ive owned 22 boats thru the years !! I must defend the Maxx. The previous owner, which is a friend of mine, was as METICULOUS as anyone Ive ever met about everything in life, including his boat. He sold it to a good friend of mine who will take just as good of care of that boat as anyone on this board. As far as set up...to each his own... who cares. The boat was detuned and re rigged to be user friendly.. not raced and top end. There are a few things on the boat that turned me off, but thats my personal liking not the boats fault. The rigging is just fine the boat is in great shape. It needs the old race stickers and paint removed, and a good, good buffing and that thing would be mint. Sorry to disagree with you Bobby, But I crawled over that thing for a whole summer(not 3 hours) because I was considering buying it. My decision not to buy it was based on the F-2 set up not being what I needed. Not the rigging and being rough. You will look at things alot different when you are spending your own money, not living thru Daddy and still collecting an allowance for milk money. Sorry, I had to pick on you a little

GEEEZE Bobby, go back and look at what you say about your dads boat and then take a real good look at it. Its all in the eyes of the beholder

Now get back to class You have to behave until I get down there and take you out of school to go boating

I don't know how to respond to this Bob. I'm not going to waste my time talking about the boat. I never said we wouldn't buy it becuase of the condition but it just wasn't as nice as we thought it would be. I don't know how you can say the rigging was fine. The boat was rigged in 1-2 days. I'd like to ask Tres Martin how it took him to rig the Team Virgin boat.

Now, about our boat-Craig Barrie came and looked at it for someone on the West Coast. The customer said Craig couldn't think of one thing negative to say about it. It doesn't get better than that....

Like Frank said, if you don't want your boat critisized then don't put it on here.

i do have to hand it to bobby, we wrote several times via email and pm regarding the Maxx boat and questions regarding my old boat and the other 2 F2's. out of the several other emails that i received, not one of them said how he didn't like the boat or the condition it was in. in fact, he sent me several pictures and was very excited after viewing the boat. hopefully you can see why i'm a little confused on why bobby changed his opinion of the boat.

in no way am i making this a personal bash, but i'm confused on why bobby is changing his story now that the boat sold and he didn't buy it...... here are just a few of the emails that i have not deleted.

Chad,

We would be all over a cat but it would not work for us here in FL. In NJ, it would have.

Really, the only F2 we wanted was MAXX and that is sold. Figuring that F2s are old race boats with no cabin, I figure you would be better off with a Gladiator becuase they are a true pleasure boat without a cabin, if you don't mind the sit-down. Plus, I think G wants to much money for his boat, we all know what he paid!

Anyways, were going to go look at a 2004 Gladiator with Staggered 525s either later today or Monday hopefully. It needs some work so I figure a bargain would be $140k. However, someone told me Spitfire1 sold his boat for $135k needing nothing so I've been trying to get ahold of his for the past 2 days to see if this is true.

Bobby

Yes, unique...That is what I like about the F-2's. Why couldn't they build more of them!!! The owner said it is very clean also. I will take a ride down to his house one weekend. I have been looking at the dash of yours and G's..Maxx has a different setup...Why? If you don't recall it, I attached a pic for you. Also any idea which gauges are on the nav station. I don't have a clue. If we sold our boat tomorrow, I couldn't find a replacement other than Maxx. I saw a pic of the Fanny Doctor without the girl and number..I kinda liked the girl...HA! It was a little awkward. $97k was a steal, or what ever it was.

Thanks,
Bobby

After reading JBK's last post, I think JR should re-read Formula Outlaw's post.
I also agree with Cuda 100%!

Bobby[/B]
Chad, I'm not changing my story. I still feel the same way I did when I looked at it. It has the set-up we want but it wasn't in the condition we really wanted. It is all fixable, just depends on how much $$$ you have to spend. Yes, I was excited after viewing it, HOW COULD YOU NOT BE? The boat looked much better (appearence wise) then the pics. If the boat would still be for sale it would still be on our list but it's NOT. I'm not trying to give the boat a bad rap, but you can't compare it to the other 3. It's just not the same caliber.

Tbone-Forumla Outlaw gave great advice and I'm trying to drop it, but Chad keeps bringing this up. If you want to know exactly how I feel Chad, give me a call 954-328-2022 and we can dicuss this like men instead of over a computer.

Well no offense intended LS JR., but I can see why Chad is questioning you after reading these emails. They sure do sing quite a different tune than the one you were singing yesterday and continue to sing today. Just learn from your mistakes JR. and keep that kind of talk for email or pm. My .02
Regards,
Tony

Different tune? You may want to re-read what Chad posted. The only thing I ever said to Chad in our e-mails about the boat was this:
