1999 Cole 250, that I had built. A 1991 Cole Superhawk that I found in Needles about 4 years ago, that wasn't being used much. A 1985 Miller V Drive, that I found in Paradise California, I drove 1400 miles round trip from Havasu and acquired it from the original owner. I feel I saved that boat as it was stored in his garage where the fires hit the following year. Millers are great boats, my wife and I raised our family in one. And the the last one is a 1975 Cole TR1. It was a storage find that had been sitting for 15 years. I thought I was done with flat bottoms, but the fact that it was a Cole, I just couldn't pass it up. There are a lot of nice new boats being manufactured, I just like the old school stuff.

Nice stable you have. Missed you at the regatta this last year.

My favorite DCM ever built and my favorite reasonably priced boat of all time. Love that you have used and cared for it for almost 12 years now. Still looks brand new.
It’s the best boat for our family of 4. There always seems to be an extra kid or two. It does everything for us perfectly. And no matter where we are boating it seems to always get a crowd and many compliments.

We live on Lake Coleto just outside Victoria. We run there or slip over to Belton, Travis & Canyon when we can. I've only had the Talon since last summer so I haven't had it out but once, basically to winterize, i.e. get some Yamalube fuel stabilizer circulated through everything. Short run but it ran awesome. Where you guys at?

I live in Alice. We mostly go to Lake Corpus Christi. It’s only 20 miles from the house. Every couple years we go out Amistad and Canyon

That's cool, thanks for reaching out. I have several friends that go to Corpus and Amistad, I've never been there but they love it, so if the opportunity comes up?

We have two boats and a kayak right now. We have a 2013 Avalon 21 ls which is kind of a basic toon with a 115 merc optimax motor.It works for us because we wanted a boat with a lot of room that we didn't have to worry about beating up on .Its worked out great for us and we use it most of the time.The other boat we have is a 1981 Schiada Whaler v- drive.We have had the whaler many years and it still looks and runs great. It has a 454 chevy and a turbo 400 trans casale split case gearbox and right now is set up more for skiing . Not the fastest but super ride and it attracts attention.And last we have a double kayak that we hope to use this year now that the wife is all healed up from shoulder surgery.

Let’s see some pics man!

So nice to see everyone’s taste in boats! To me any and every boat is badass!
My son keeps asking me when it’s going to be warm enough for him to jump in!!

Just completed a 5-year restomod of my 1987 Eliminator 23’ Daytona with lots of help from friends.

I’m extremely pleased with how it turned out and how it performs. 4MPG@60, 3.5MPG@85.

It’s got 900W stereo with hidden 10” subs as well as a carpeted and padded cabin.

Your Ultra has beautiful lines, such a sweet looking ride. But what’s with the underside of Hatch? o_O Looks like it was fabbed by Lumber Liquidators in the parking lot at Tijuana Home Depot. :DPlease take the granny panties off and dress that sexy bitch up.;)
