Yep, She's probably right Think you'll find that your twin "See me girls!" Verados are super-charged not turbo'd. But, "Hey" who cares.

Yes.. to some people it is real... just because you don't aspire to that doesn't make it any less “real”. Your coming over just as bigoted as those larger boat owners who "look down" on our "sea rider" friends.. what is it with people? For feck’s sake.. a boat is a boat is a boat regardless of size, type or age… why bitch about what other people have… unless it’s Roops.. then feel free to bitch all ya like…

have huge amounts of fun with my little quicksilver 3.4 with a 15 on the back and it all fits the back of my landy too, not sure the verados would fit in the back of the gutless landy but would love em to fit in the front!!!!

After many years of messing in the most fun and most predictable/enjoyable to drive is the trusty and bomb proof Avon SR5.4. You just cannot gloat over those boats no matter what you have. It is all about attitude...

Ok, We have a Quicksilver (kids wanted Billabong, couldn't find one) 2.3m with a 4hp RHonda (Welsh Outboard Co.) on the back. One adult, one small kid and a sandwich box and that's yer lot! Does that mean that we have serious "altitude"?!!

my daughter loved our ax3 with a 2 hp yam on it, you could lift it with one hand all day, but it was about as pokey as the landy is splashed out on a 4, but the 4 on a boat that was like a tray (flat bottom) was a bit naff so went to a bombard 340 aerodeck, when down meva on hols a guy took a fancy to it and borght it off me on the last day of hols so came home and borght the quicksilver. must admit not looked back on the bombards as they were a bit naff with crap layout compared to the quicksilver 340 airdeck thingy, love it, especially with a 15. and with the max pitch prop it goes very fast, would love to know how fast. so these small boats are loads of fun, but i would love a 9m with a few "look at me girls" "where has all that fuel gone" verados on the back but the compromise is going to be a picton with opti which i am sure will be fun, not as new as i would like but fun.

So codders, what boat do you have on order you lucky begger and what will be down the back end?

Attitude - was more refering to those who pose rather than enjoy.

now this is a cool baby....is a super engine except the camchains go (all four of em) at 60k mls, plugs cost even more than optis, no fuel economy even if you go gentle, but otherwise is a stonker, would have cut and paste int eh landy if i could, shame the rest of the package is so crappy and small, cxd for a beemer.
