Among our members is a wealth of information-some, like from OB and BN, though entertaining, serves no usefull purpose. How about posting your boat brand, size, engine and ONE thing you like about it and One thing you would change.


Here goes:

Crownline 205 BR, 6.2 MPI

Great usable space

Wish it was a 28 footer.

2001 28' Sunsation. HP500EFI, black with gold graphics.
Like the rest of you I too wish it was longer ( the boat) but instead of posting the expected I would like to see a glove box or cooler in front of the passenger bolster.
Oh ,,,, and I want to go faster to!

I own two boats:

2002 Sunsation 288 w/496/HO - (for sale)
and a
1987 Chris Craft 222 Stinger with a 625HP Whipple Charged 454 mated to a bravo.

They're both cool boats.

The Sunsation is great and I love it but want a twin engined boat now that it looks like gas prices will be fairly stable for the next few years.

The Stinger is cool looking (triple bolster), but handles like crap. However it's a rocket ship with the 625HP engine. It idles like a top fuel dragster.

1985 Four Winns 211 Liberator, 350 Mag with a few mods to make about 310-320hp.
I love how it handles big water, it's a very heavy boat. It also has a large cockpit for the size, I like that too.
I don't like the fast that it isn't running(refer to 'bad day on the water').
I wish it were a 33 Baja Outlaw SST.
Actually I wish that it was a bit faster.(don't we all)

I'm not even going to dignify that with a reply !!!!!!!!!

I own a 1997 272 Baja 502 MPI, and a 1994 Sea Ray 14' jet boat.

The thing I like about the Baja it's paid for !!!
What I dont like,,,it seems to have shrunk in the last 5 years,,,,sure seemed bigger when I bought it !!!!!!1

88 Baja 196 Sport
350 Mag 270hp stock
I love that it fits in the garage
I wish I had room for a bigger garage if you know what I mean :D
Desparately need a bigger boat but I just bought a new truck so that is on the back burner again.

2001 Stingray 230SX 6.2L MPI, Bravo 1. I am very pleased with the boat overall but as many of you already said. I wish the boat was about 5' longer.

I have 96 Progression 24 foot with 502 MPI Whipplecharged. Very light, very solid and very fast. Handles well and in 5 seasons of HARD use nothing has come loose. If only it were a little longer (I would like a little more space in the cuddy).

99 Starcraft 2210 GT, I like the graphics, purple and yellow, but wish it had the engine that was in a Checkmate I looked at last week. 383, aluminum heads, pro charger, imco headers and exhaust, 600+ hp. Yeah that would be nice!!!
