    Made a purchase about a month ago and have been absolutely loving it. I havent had an outboard equipped boat for many years but this thing is making me a believer. I am sure this will be very familiar to the group ;)

    Even the grandson thinks he is a pimp at the helm...

    Last pic sitting next to my old sled with a teague 825io. It's for sale currently...

    Such a beautiful lake. Congrats on badass new ride. Theres a few spots you can let the 288SS rip. Enjoy your new ride.

    Haha ya very few. So much traffic and idiots on jet ski not paying attention. I have had to many near misses just cruising over the years. We usually just cruise at a safe speed and reserve the high speed passes for the larger lakes.

    Yeah it's a really nice boat. I am very happy with it. The wife at first missed that big block whipple screaming announcing our arrival to the beach but now she even likes the sweet hum (she says it sounds like a pissed off bee swarm) of the outboards. Bully built a hell of a boat and Todd was cool as hell to deal with on the purchase. It's always nerve racking making a purchase of this size and not knowing the person your dealing with. Todd was so cool, honest and upfront I wouldn't hesitate to purchase anything from him. Even Paul reached out offering his personal number and tons of great advice and knowledge of the boat. I definitely do not regret this purchase and absolutely love this boat.
