The highways are too crowded and we can get to the shopping centers much faster by water in a high performance boat.

Sold the wife on a performance boat by telling her-

I'll sell the Motorcycle It worked

Tell her cruisers are for Poodles Not too mention, the more people on board the more to clean up after, also to be responsible for too, and they fill up the Porta potty Yuck

Plus, tell her women look sexier riding on "go fast" boats! OK...I know I'm going to catch some crap for that so I'll go ahead and say it..."I'm sorry!"

But seriously, I'd much rather ride on a "go fast" than a cruiser! Yes, there may be more room and amenities on a cruiser. But, when I go out on the boat that's my relaxation time and the last thing I'm going to want to do is clean up after others!

P.S. Go fasts have mirrors and toilets, too!

32-33 performance boat can be trailered and stored easier than a 33 cruiser. Some 33 cruisers will require permits to trailer. The performance boat can be serviced at an inland repair facility (which MAY be cheaper) because it is on a trailer. Maint will be less because it can be keep on a trailer(or floater/hoist) instead of being left in the water.

Just a few ideas.

She doesn't want a crusier, she wants a toilet with a door and a mirror that floats. And if she's really honest she'll admit she wants no kitchen or galley as sailboters would say.
I want a Formula 336, which has an enclosed head. I'll have to be sure to point that out...

With a performance boat we can cruise inlets on weeknights and then go racing on the weekends and really have some fun! Jo P4-1 HerbottRacing

She really likes the 330SS, but I think it's still a compromise and even with 496 HO's it won't do 70. Plus, it won't fit the slip in our dock because it's 10.5' wide. Ah, there's another reason...we have to stay with a performance boat to fit in our dock!

When you said sell the spouse, I started wondering how much she would bring.
