I hear ya Pat. My wife doesn't want me to sell but she understands. She says I'm going to miss cruising at 75-80 MPH

Last Year my best boating bud went from a 29' Fountain with 600HP SC454 that ran 80mph top and cruised at 60mph to a 28' Albin that tops out at 26mph and cruises at 20mph...

I've down sized but haven't given up going fast (over 70mph) yet.

So what's your plan?

You know if you sell it you'll miss and and wish you hadn't . People have sold other boats and not missed them but it seams like everyone that has sold their 30 supers have regret .

Joe, you make a good point.
His wife is going to look him in the eye and ask "are you sure you want to sell? you know you are going to be miserable without that boat."
The reply might be, " I've had her (the boat) for 15 years and it's time to move on."

After a pretty rough ride in our new boat last weekend, my wife said "Ya, it don't ride like the Superboat did"!
