Thinking of going back to PP. Know of one with 525's but seeing what else can be bought. Prefer bigger power...

Ive been wanting the Blue outboard one... Like you said (or someone) you never see them because they are always out being used instead of at the dock with the hatch up and someone halfway hanging out of it.

Rack: $6k
Insurance: $7400 (26 years old)
Fuel: $11k
= $26k give or take with no maintenance issues.

Talked to the guy who bought my boat over the winter and he put about 20 hours on the boat, ran flawless, then one engine went kaboom, blown head gasket burned a hole in a couple pistons. Checked the other engine and that head gasket was leaking too. $60k later he is back up and running. I feel like the verge of a docile, reliable engine, 200+ hours is right at around 1000hp, once you go over that you are asking for trouble.

Yeah older boat, was converted to 525's. Not listed anywhere. When you going to buy one, they're getting hard to find???

Good question. Gotta fund a lift and dock purchase right now, but I'll be getting more serious with time. Just keeping my finger on the pulse of what's out and about now. I'd like to go '97 or newer, too, which shrinks the market even more. I dug the '05, but the timing and the price just weren't right for me.
Also not ruling out some other "hot rods" out there. The Superboats and Phantoms are cool as well, but I think the 33 PP is a more well-rounded boat.

Even though I don't have one, I enjoy reading the threads on the PP's and keeping up with them. I appreciate everyone letting me join in the banter.

Yeah, maybe if you're comparing someone w/ 600 hp hanging off the back to someone w/ 2000 hp under a hatch. Otherwise w/ "mild power" I don't know who's losing their boating time to engine work all the time...
