Back in Action!
She's not the most elegant, but I test drove her this morning and this boat is smokin' fast! 5.7L V8 with Mercruiser stern drive and stainless steel speed prop. Cuddy cabin with sleeper, shitter, alcohol stove, and sink. Beer cooler built into the floor (very important) and Alpine stereo. For an 11-year old boat, hardly a scratch. The engine only has 360 hours. I'll take delivery next week just in time for a maiden voyage next weekend! It's been five years since I've been on the water because my bitch ex-wife took my Sea Ray in the divorce. But that's OK, I took the kids and have now replaced the boat. BWAHAHAHAHAH!!!! IT IS ALIIIIIIIIVE!!!
We test drove her on the Sound this morning and it was a blast! I don't think I like the speed prop so I'll probably buy a lower pitched prop that cuts down on the top end speed but gets out of the hole faster. The speed prop will be nice to have around for those days when we are in the need for speed.
