I used to have the exact same boat (in 2008/2009) and loved it. Definitely a very fun boat that is easy to operate and can get up into the 60s with ease.

That boat has been for sale for a while. I talked to the guy last year about it before making the deal with Jeff on the Excalibur.
He seemed VERY firm on the price so I moved on.
