That's what I am trying to understand. In the Jeep world, I could tell you which years have which drivetrains, aftermarket support, suspension, etc. IMHO a 2005 LJ is pretty hard to beat. With Ford SuperDuties one could argue the 99-2002 models have a great balance of form and function.
I'm looking for the model years that produced the right circumstances to yield exceptional boats. Maybe it was the years Sammy Wizznuts was laying up hulls, or Joe Schmo was doing gelcoats, or whoever was rigging boats? Is there a window that we had the right powertrains and build quality that outperformed other years, or do custom boats not have this type of model year changes?
I'm pretty sure a 25-27 MCOB with an EFI motor from a reputable builder mentioned in this thread is the right path, just curious if there is a nugget hiding in a specific year?
Doesn't really work that way with boats.
There are not as many variables involved as there are on a car/truck. And the options don't change Every year.
Sure, there Are certain engine/drive combos to stay away from, but it also highly revolves around one's budget, and the intended use of said boat.
BIG water boat. Almost big blue status (ocean boat).
Budget should be the next thing you want to throw out there?
Current tow vehicle? Are you willing to upgrade? Will it even need to be towed?
Inquiring minds wanna know...
