Nasty! as you've had a sense of humour failure:

True

it hasnt got all those cheap parts

Actually it has, they're just re-badged as 'gucci' for the suckers (Autometer)

its not got loads of stress crack from 3 years racing

True, but it would have if it had ever been over 60mph

its not got the weak drive on it

You shouldn't tempt fait, plenty of 'X's' have failed on Yanmars too

It also didn't have a ridiculous, unsightly and impractial stainess steel dashboard!
Or, an engine compartment that looks like it hasn't been cleaned/serviced since 1976

ouch!! JF sorry, i just remembered you rigged it!!

was refering to plastic parts as opposed to stainless steel fittings we have on ours

true about dials but image costs...
but gaffrig racing throttles compared to plastic quicksilver??
liquid filled speedo compared to bouncy searay style??
mechanical indictors compared to electric?

done 62mph on gps few times but would say its a genuine 60mph boat...always hits 58 with 4 crew and full tank...
sure when its a 7 year old hull it will be as crazed as maelstrom, but its not and thats why it cost more...

drive yes dont we know it Maelstroms cost us 3k to fix!!
think you'll find bravo 3 X's failing on cruisers... but yes, shouldnt tempt fate...

stainless steel dash, used in Bentleys, its actually easy to clean.. depends on your style i suppose!!

dirty engine compartment?? dont think so... although we found one of TD half eaten pizza slices down there the other day...

best let you cool down a bit hotshot...

I wasnt slagging off Maelstrom just justifying that its worth more than Andys offer....

maelstrom was a great boat for 23k that we paid and sold it for...
it gave us our first experince of powerboating and helped us in our design for the best (IMHO) extreme we asked Tony to build..

Your a Banker aren't you? ..(spelling??)
stick to Banking

Ordering a totaly standard boat/engine, then adding half a dozen re-badged, overpriced 'accessories' from Halfords doesn't make it a race boat, or any other type of 'class act', so I think the 'Boat Snobbery' is inappropriate.

Your obsession with 'Vogue' is interesting, surely you're not confusing the 40', 2/3000hp monsters with speedmaster drives, racing steering, etc, that run in many cases 100+ with your sportsboat?

This thread is becoming ridiculous, and all because you appear to have had a sense of humour failure over andy's joke offering you, what you offered him!


as for not thinking you have a race boat, who's pretentious design was this then?

nice design !! we were just having fun.....

I was joking with Andy a cheeky reply for a cheeky offer...
just pointing out the differences between the boats...
sorry you didnt see it that way...

Most boats in the states are not like that.... in fact most boats are between 23-28ft single engine and their owners spending a large porportion of their disposable income on tricking up their pride and joy... just like us...

If Gaffrig, teague marine, dana marine, eddie marine had showrooms in Soton, I'm sure you would find many more boaters buying these....

If you look at a cross section of OPB members, I think you'll find very few 23' Binliners with 'Bling Bling bits', it's mainly Hardcore.
But as I said, this thread is silly, in fact I think I'll split it, as it's not a very good 'for sale' thread any more.

thks john for the split

I was refering to 23-28ft perfomance boats that give their owners the fun of choosing trick bits for them...
donzi, baja, sunsation, pantera, sonic, dcb, cobra, dana, eliminator, howard, fountain, formula, powerquest....

and mostly older boats to make them more personal...


we are not arguing, just entertaining, all good fun..

Captain, the 'pretentious' graphics were from Canada, we spent about 4 weeks on the designs and we think they came out great...
website is www.racelinedigital.com
but maybe this is for 'race' boats only?? not sportsboats!!
