About

This was the most extreme boat I have ever owed. It would accelerate to 60mph in 8sec. It would literally leap out of the water when you nailed the throttle.

It would cruise at 75mph with a full load of people all day long.

Lighten the load to one driver and 1/2 tank of fuel - Hang on, because this boat would run 85mph. It was a bit of a handful, but lots of fun!

Factory Options

My boat was basically a stock boat. I bought it as a Factory Blem. It had some blistering in the gel-coat. It came with 7 colors of gel to repair it and with about 3 weeks of work, I had it looking "Perfect" again. I even amazed myself what I did with this boat.

The proof is ..... about 5 years after I sold it, I saw it for sale again less than a mile from my house. It still looked great and all my repairs were as good as the day I did them!!
