Still looking for any past reviews of the 30. I’ve beat the internet up and can’t find a thing. Any articles from Hot Boat or any publication from back in the day? Production numbers? Race history?

Uship? I used it once and will not use it again. The guy lied about his insurance coverage. It worked out OK, but made me very nervous. I picked him because he lived near me. I mentioned his name to my wife and she knew he had done jail time for assault. Of course, I learned this after he already had my boat.

For my 30 Spectre, which I found in Long Island, I used Frank Mole Transport. He only lived a couple of miles away and he provided an excellent experience. He's in Florida all the time.

Yeah it wasn’t a good experience but another gentleman and his son came thru. My wife was hospitalized the day I bought it and had a friend help me coordinate the shipping. I was living in a hospital for 3 weeks and doing this from the 1st floor lobby was an ordeal. But she’s here and many thanks to Bob Lawrence (owner) and Chris Bingham for their help and patience. God bless them both.

Thanks SR 24 Dave & Plum Crazy for your replies and yes much better but it’s gonna be a long haul before she’s better. I’m looking forward to actually getting her out. I’ll try to keep y’all updated but it’s back to work in a few days.

Hope you're out boating with your wife very soon.
There's a couple of ways to post pics. I'm using an iPad and I reckon the easiest way is to hit the little picture icon next to the smiley.then follow the prompts. If you're still having trouble, I'm happy to post some for you. (PM sent)




Cheers,
RR
