I would be willing to bet that the new generation of XR and ZX drive improvements would fix the Blackhawk problems I had 11 years ago.

I would go and look at the Apache, Low Profile before making the decision to get my Sonic.

I would have waited a year and bought Rob's 311.

Seriously.

I should have invested all the money i spent on the first boat into lottery tickets! Then I could have really run with the big dogs!

What would I do different? Buy a finished boat.

If I were buying.......

1. Skip the expense of graphics.

2. Invest in #6 Drives or Arnesons

3. Buy too much horsepower [ever hear anyone say I wish I'd have bought smaller motors?]

4. Spec no more than a quarter cabin.

5. Delete deck hatches

6. Minimal deck hardware and all of it flush.

7. Personally select hardware and accessories.

8 Plumb with large 12" sea strainers

9. Use a top rigger. ie Bobby Moore, John Pompi etc.

10.Rear bolsters.

I could go on.....
im in the middle of doing the above including john pompi!!!! minus #4 im doing a std cabin..
