Jassman:

It was looking good on the trailer.

I did talk to RV a few times in the last month, but didnt even know it resold, maybe the guy will join OSO and post some pics, if not RV. I regret that I sold it , sometimes be satisfied for what you have, wanting to go faster isn't always better. Thanks

Not sure who the owner is, but it definetly was your old boat... right down to the TMP sticker on the trailer.

When will your new 43 be done? What did you finally decide on engines and drives?

I bought RVs Flame and he stepped up to that beautiful boat. Wow!
I can promise you one thing; there's no one on this planet who will take better care of that boat than Rick!!!

I'm sure he'll be chiming in with you guys shortly.

I spoke with RV today, he did buy the boat. When I owned it, it was detailed every saturday by my porter along with my truck and Sandys car. He would get here at 7am and leave around 5-5:30. In the winter I kept it in a heated and cooled 12x52' garage under my home with central vac up high on the wall by the cockpit, so all I had to do is reach over and grab the 30' hose. This garage was built just for this boat. Otherwise it stayed on a Myco cradle that was covered with hot and cold water as well as shore power for those days I was in the dog house. I know RV will get it back in shape.

I just talked with rv a week ago and we talked about your old boat. He said he didn't care much for the purple interior, I thought looks good. He must have been sandbagging me.

I know he got a good boat. Jassman, is rv the 2nd or third owner?

Everyone,
We did get it and its new home is Withrop Harbor. It went down very quickly, I hope not too quickly. I flew down to check it out on Sunday, we agreed to terms on Monday and it was in route to us on Friday. We took delivery on Saturday at 1pm. A very good friend helped my wife and I do a very quick clean and had it in the water by 6:30pm that day. We didn't get a chance to run it until Sunday.

There were 2-3' with a 4' every once and awhile. The boat handled it great. On the way back from Racine we had 7 in the boat and I don't think anyone was complaining about being to cramped for room.

Nor-Tech, Jassman and TMP did a great job putting this one together. There was alot of thought put into this boat, the features, layout and detail. It would have been nice to get it directly from Jeff, I know I would have had alot less to do. I am pretty sure I can get it back (at least close) to they way Jeff had it.

Downtown 42, I am sure we will see you one of these weekends.

Rick
