My wife is set on this boat, trusts the seller, and says it goes fast enough for her. She wins.
Overall my impression after the sea trial was that it was a solid boat, handled well, and di not feel slow.
I can always use more speed though!!!!
that's great! Buying a boat is a fantastic experience! If I weren't paying for college for my daughter we'd be moving into a bigger one this year. Plus, not much of a market for a two year old 1800 SR3 that I want 18K for.
(interested parties PM me) LOL!
I'm glad the 4.3 is working for you. It's going to work harder than a bigger motor so keep that in mind. The harder you push it, the more problems you will have.
Post pictures of your new baby!! Looking forward to seeing it!
