Phil, nice 40, enjoy it in good health. Is it gas or diesel? And it looks as if you have a T-N-T lift, yes or no? Sweet ride at any rate.

Dana - you need to make your someday TODAY, tomorrow is not guaranteed. Go for it

PS: Phil, do you know anything about the wood boat off your stern? Sure looks in good shape from a distance.

Am I sounding like a broken record? The bottm line is that I'm really pleased with my 31PC at this point, but in the not-so-distant-future I'd definately like to move up. I just purchased a slip in my marina (no more rent!), so I'm still working toward my goal. PLUS...the boat show is just 2 weeks away...

No way, I was just razzing you a bit. There is a lot to be said about being comfortable with what you have at present. "You have to want what you have before you can have what you want." A memorable quote from Dad, I should have listened to more of what he had to say instead of thinking I had it all figured out so quick! Actually, given the market we are in, it is good to be comfortable with your present boat since getting rid of them seems to be such a problem. Of course if you have boocoo dollars the problem goes away ....which show are you referring to?

We run gas. The amount of hours per year doesn't warrant deisel. About 30 hours a year. And for the platform, no its not a TNT. Wish it was. The family and I were looking at waverunners at the New York show. We love this boat.

Great quote!

The Minneapolis Boat Show starts on 1/17. I consider that to be the half-way point between haul out and launch. Although it's been a very mild winter in the midwest, I'm already sick of it and ready to get back on the water.

FTII- where did you get that 40PC? Have you had it long. Looks a lot like one I was considering a few seasons ago, and being that you're in NJ, it could be it.

I found it up in Buffalo New York. It was an unexpected purchase. Had a new 27PC for about a year, then stumbled on this. It was a deal I could not refuse. We have had no regrets on this purchase. Can't wait to get her back in the water.

The one I was looking at was gas also and the same color scheme. Gas is fairly rare in the 40PC, so I was just wondering, but it must not be the same boat.

Since most prefer diesel in the 40PC, we could've picked that one up for a "steal" too!

Nice boat.

No need to show these on a new thread...actually they are also on the HRCC forum, but some of you may not read those. These were taken at the factory as they check the systems on my boat before deelivery.




They will be delivering the boat April 17th, hope to be in the water by the 19th.

Nice pictures, great looking boat! AZ, did they ship yours without the radar arch in place? Do you guys have to make tuning adjustments because of elevation at the lakes (I'm thinking you are way above sea level)?

No adjustments are needed, the ECM will control timing and fuel mixture according to air density and fuel quality. We are at about 1000' above sea level and the biggest change we can make is in props. I just picked up another set of props in 24 pitch for Lake Powell at 3600' elevation with a fully loaded boat and 6 passengers.

Funny, our old Chaparral 260 is sitting in front and right of your bow, with the blue cover.

Looks like we'll make a trip to Roosevelt this year. I just have to check on the one underpass elevation on the way up to Payson. We tow radar arch up and is 14'2" at the antenna swivel.

Thanks for the info. If you head our way let us know, we don't know any one up there but hope we have good slip neighbors. We have 4 boys...5th, 6th, 8th and 9th so we won't be invisible! We are planning for Powell next summer so take some pics for us.

When do you take possession?
We just got back from Lake Powell. Her first of many trips up.
For those not familiar with the lake, this is at Dangling Rope floating marina at 43 mile mark on Lake Powell. Only accessible by water. This was the only sunny day we had.

I had some friends up there on the beach, tried talking us into comming up to Roosevelt, but we had to get her in for the first service.

I'll bet you had so much fun, you stayed two nights.

To AZ:

Greg,

Nice job on the graphics for your boat name. Did you utilize a particular website for the design? Just wondering.

Our boat is complete, and is enroute to the dealership. It should be getting bottom painted early next week. We're anxiously awaiting it getting into our hands, as the weather has been perfect here for boating.

Take care,

GW

Thanks, I give the credit to my 6th grade son for coming up with the font, it's called Planet Benson 2 in MS Word. My wife came up with the name & the fish. The guy who painted it is a local guy who does custom cars and boat graphics on the side. Best part was he only charged $375.00! Were heading up Friday to make it 3 wkends in a row. We will get some pics out on the water, 95 and sunny is the forecast!

Make it a great week.

Joe will paint your registration numbers on too, so they match your name. You may have to wait until you have her out of the water again, not sure if he would come up there for it.

What do you tow the 31 with - any problems?

Wife and I were at SCM yesterday looking at the 31 PC then proceeded to Pleasant - as you probably know there is no storage available.

Really want the boat but not sure what to do with it when not in the water.

Thanks,

I'm surpeised Pleasant has none. We thought about it, but want it covered. Covered dry, on the trailer, worked out to be a rediculous $700 to $800 a month. The new marina should open up some room.

We love the 31pc, let us know what you decide.

How does someone living in Arizona ask a New Yorker, "How's the weather up there?" Are you putting me on or do you really have a concern about how much boating I can get in before it turns ugly?!! Actually we are not doing too badly, and I have managed to clock about 29 hours so far. The holiday week doesn't look too bad although they are saying showers posibly Wednesday. As long as they fall in the morning and don't have an effect on the Macy's fireworks show it will be fine. Of course we all need to say a prayer for the folks in Texas & Kansas who have been inundated lately.

Hope you guys are putting some UV protection on those pretty Formula hulls to keep them looking sharp. You've got some great places to boat, thanks for sharing the photos.

Looks good, George. I've seen many boats that have taken the gold leaf "Formula" off the transom to put their name on, but I gotta tell 'ya, I like it left on. The gold accents with the deep blue look great, by the way.

Manmade,
Grew up in Kansas and spent years boating on Lake of the Ozarks in the 70's as a kid. Loved all those tree lined coves and BIG thunderstorms. Never been up to your part of the country but maybe one day. As for the sunscreen, I recommend a covered slip and a fine bikini for the wife.
