I think I found a buyer for the cruiser I have been wanting to sell. If everything goes well, I should be taking a look at the Scarab that I have been wanting. The best thing is the man doesn't need the trailer, which is perfect for the Scarab, which doesn't have a trailer. The only thing is I have to trailer it from here, (Clearwater) to Ft Lauderdale (270 miles). He agreed to pay me a couple hundred more for the expense of delivering it.

The Scarab is a 90 28 ft Excel. I am also looking at a 31 Excalibur, but it has twins, and I am shying away from double trouble.

I never thought I would want twins either but now that I do I wouldn't go back. Nice knowing you have a engine to get you back home if necessary.

I like the twins because it really helps when you are in tight places..... around the docks and such. You can really turn with em, not to mention the sound 2 of em make when they are runin!!!

Oh, don't get me wrong, I would love to have twins if someone else paid for the feeding and care of them. As far as getting back on one engine, a radio and SeaTow is much cheaper than twins, and besides, somethings can go wrong that effect BOTH engines, such as fuel and steering.

As a matter of fact, I did end up with twins. Now if they ever get the title crap straight, I can start feeding them.

So what did you get?

Jeff's Sunsation is a single engine, and this season we've had trouble docking a couple of times in high wind and strong current... now he wants a 32' with twins in the worst way!

Well, we paid for, but haven't recieved yet, a Formula 242 LS with twin 350's. I have never driven a twin, nor have I driven a boat with separate throttle and gear levers. It could get interesting around the dock.

Actually I've never docked the boat... I'm the TRUE rope monkey! On Sunday I had to literally leap from the cockpit to the deck to help us get in a tight spot without hitting a big cruiser... got bruises on my shins! When we finally sat down at the restaurant, a woman came up to me and told me I did a great job sacrificing my body for the boat. Jeff has all the fun and I do all the sweating!:rolleyes:
