    boat I mean.
    Ideas on a speedy little tube-tow-er for the 7-9k range?
    Thanks.

    Been looking at boats for when we move to FL soon. All depends on if we end up on a lake or can go into Gulf. Been looking at quite a few/ 7-9k can get you a lot of boat. I am thinking boat size needed & right away get the motor rebuilt or go with the one to fit best & reliability of being new & maintain it. If you are going for speed, the type that will go up on plane quick are fun. It's a whole nother situation like guitars/amps..lots to check out !

    For half a second I thought you were making a Star Trek reference, then common sense kicked in.

    More's the pity. The world could use a little more Deep Space Nine.

    My first car was a Pinto Runabout.

    Runabout immediately made me think boat... Mid 1960's Starcraft aluminium v-hull, 15'& 16'... Skied behind many. Lot's of fun for sure. Lusted for an all mahogany Chris Craft with a V-8 and v-drive.
