How long have you owned it?
Owned it for two years now.
Is this your first boat?
No. Owned many boats but this is the biggest one so far and can't wait to go bigger!
At what port would we find you on a nice summer day?
We put in at Saint Joe and mainly go south toward New Buffalo. We have friends with a condo down there. Hoping to make the trip across to Chicago this year.
Would you rather hammer down and crush waves, take a leisurely cruise up the coast, or raft up in a cove?
Love going fast but we mainly just cruise.
What’s the top speed?
Top speed so far is 71.2 but have a little prop work to do yet.
Any recent projects?
This year had to redo the bolster seats. Also getting ready to install K-planes and shore power. Updated the stereo system as well.
What’s interesting or unique about it?
Nothing really unique. It's an older boat that still looks and runs great and we have a ton of fun on it!
