Pursuits are super nice!



Very true. My current boat does a blistering 48 MPH, but I'm sure my crew does not care. I think some of my previous boats scared passengers that were not used to...

I wonder where all the performance boats went? In the early 2000's boat builders couldn't build them fast enough. I'd see lots of boats at all the hot spots In my local waters. Not anymore, now I'll...

Not a PQ, but I was running a Maximus on a 30 Superboat. It ran great but I think they are real tough on drives. My slip was very low. I broke my XR twice in less than 150hrs.

No way would I go from a VR1 to a 10yr. older checkmate. If the VR1 doesn't cut it in your waters, you probably need a bigger boat.

Congrats! There was a 272 model called the "Shooter" in the 90's that had a fairing instead of the windshield.

On trailer at house, or in our community marina 200 yds. from house.

If I had to drive 100's of miles to use my boat I would move or find another hobby.

I had a step hull, but I don't think that is worth much more speed. With 385 HP, I turned a 26P bravo @5000rpm, 73 mph, and with 425HP, 28P [email protected], 78mph.

That's nice! I loved the 24 I owned too. I had a '98, started out with a 454mag mpi, then I repowered with a 496HO. You must be into the mid 80's with 520HP? I saw 80 once or twice with 425HP.

What goes up, must come down. Remember 2008ish when a lot of builders closed up shop. When the stock and housing markets take a hit, so will everything else.

I don't know when the last 24 I/O was made. I think I saw a 24 CC build not too long ago on facebook. I think you would be better off just buying a 30. The boat from the dash to the transom probably...

Are you talking about the Mercury silent choice (air activated) system or Corsa?

My mercury system used to close on it's own sometimes. Finally, I just used zip ties to keep it open all the time....
