    Thinking about crossing over to the dark side...

    YUP, thinking of getting a boat and letting the RXP go... I want to get a runabout and I thought of asking you guys for some advice.

    I like to tube and ski so what do you guys reccommend as far as engine size and size of boat.. Right now I'm thinking 20 foot minimum with a 5.7 engine at minimum..

    I'm looking to buy a used boat so what should I be on lookout for with the engine.. I.e. what # hours do I not want to exceed or are there specific size motors that really aren't worth the trouble?? Also what brands are better or are they all relatively equal. i.e. baja vs. crownline vs. four winns etc.

    Thanks for the help guys...

    Thanks

    Just wondering why you have women and bikinis seperate, these should be one in the same. How many guys have been on your boat with bikinis on? Honestly I think nobody here wants to know, Danny!!!

    If I had a boat only good looking women can board with nothing but a bikini, and bikini has to be in hand. A guy can only board if he brings 2 women with him.

    If that one aint enough boat for you they do sell a couple rated for twin 225's.

    That Yamaha outboard has sure enough got rave revues.

    We have a 2004 Larson 21' with a volvo 5.0 nice boat for a couple people it seats 5 comfortably anything over that its cramped and its slow to plane. It says it seats 10 but i cant imagine that possible. Keep in mind how many people your going to have on the boat all the time make sure theres enough room for everyone to be comfortable. We've got over 200 hours on it now with zero problems and starts right away everytime.
