I have one GLARING question that we have asked ourselves while watching (and you COULD answer this on your vblog instead if you like). What prompted, or what was the mentality, to commit to putting $112,000 into a boat that old? Possibly 50% of the boats value (guessing)you have now put into upgrades. Considering the combined investment, could you not have almost just purchased a boat to more fit your needs?
can you get a stabilized twin engine in great shape boat that size for 200k?
