So I've lurked around this place for a long, long time. Never registered or participated because I didn't own a boat. I equated it to wearing Harley Davidson shirts without owing a Harley. ;)

Grew up going to the river with my Mom, mostly Laughlin, on our Sea Doo's... until we "upgraded" to a 21 footer and boated Mohave. It was just me and her growing up for the most part, and I still hang on to those memories. That was damn near 20 years ago, and I've got a family of my own now. I've wanted to make those same memories with MY kids for a long time... but something always came up and the boat had to wait.

We've bothered Shockwave Bob for years now, but were never able to pull the trigger.. weather it be used or a new build. We did know that whatever we were going to buy, would be a Shockwave, based on Bob's candor and the way he runs his show (he flat out told us to go look at all the other builders before we decided, and we liked that). Went to the 2015 boat show, and fell in love with the Tremor on the floor. eff it, lets build one.... then we found out we were pregnant again.. :rolleyes

Fast forward, I see the same Tremor pop up for sale... and saw the price creep down to where we were budgeted... and well... took it off Sbarry's (SUPER cool dude!!) hands... :D:D

Absolutely stoked about it. Looking forward to getting it on the water, and finding our niche and our "spot"..



The rug rats, with the baby ALREADY standing on my interior!!! :eek:eek

Congratulations on your new boat. The Tremor is a great size boat for the local lakes. It is bigger than most in its size range and performs really well.

Great choice! Brand quality, service, performance, comfort, etc.

I had one for years. Great boat. Plus they eat rough water and still are one of the faster 25' foot sport boats.

Gratzie!

I feel like I'm driving home from the hospital after having a baby, but I don't have the baby. Lol.

I sat in it and made vroom vroom and lopey idle sounds though.

Congrats!! Great find! I have such fond memories growing up with my parents and trips to the river and lake Powell! It's awesome that you are able to do that with your kids now too!

Didn't want to start a new thread for my lame ass, but I took some pics I think came out pretty OK. Took the boat out for the first time today, absolutely awesome experience.

Launched at Windsor (the left side.. Lol) and wanted to run up to Pirates. Was worried about the mouth of the river, but ended up taking the dredged route (depth gauge showed 2 feet at some points! [emoji15])
