I bought this boat from a gentleman out in Oklahoma....quite a trip from Upstate NY. It is an absolute blast to take this out on the Hudson River....everyone loves to see it and quite a few can hear it. The original 283 has been reworked to 247 hp from the factory 185 hp, and sounds great with unrestricted dual exhaust. It takes a bit more care than a fiberglass boat, but it's worth it.....the looks are unmatched.
