It depends on what kind of boat...new or used and shipping is a matter of size .

With used boats u can manage to safe a lot of money . with new boats its kind of tuff to do !!!!!

Why not stay loyal and buy British.

Peace of mind in what you are buying, no hassle on import costs.

I am sure Mr Ring could do you a deal

But that was not the point of this bashing of yours... u said u race me in my boat with yours !!!!!?????

if u just wanna play...then we can do that but that will only proof that i am a better racer then u ..not so much that the US or english boats are better..


Oh well..if u dont even understand yourself, how will others ???????

So you scraped an engine together yet, Scotty

First fix your boat so it can be raced with ..then start bragging.
