Well I took the plunge this past Saturday and bought a boat. I've been shoping for the past month ... ever sinceI my last one got stolen and stripped. I must say it was a shock going from a 17 footer to a 24 '. the boat is gorgeous! I may be a little bias since I own it...lol it has the 7.4 with bravo 1 outdrive with a 19* pitch prop.im sure we will be getting alot of use out of it... except for the toilet .. I cannot see my butt fitting in that small compartment!
