Not that I need to hear about any of them that are available , but I know where there will be an almost perfect (black) one available in just a few months, with up-to-date Garmins, all of the bugs worked out (certified used ) and with a fresh coat of ceramic.

If I was in the market, why would I look any further?

Love my Onslow. Thing is a beautiful Beast. I love it so much in 5 years gonna sell it and build another.
You will be very happy. If your funds allow flip the 300s and upgrade to 350 Vrods.

Did a lot of interior detailing this weekend (in the rain) and got all the floor compartments looking new, polished all the aluminum and bright work, detailed the bilge, cleaned and sealed all the vinyl, etc.
Finally got to run her. You can read all about that in the comparison thread I did on the Southport and OB27. I'll just says the boat is super impressive and managed 65.1 mph in lousy conditions.
Dropping it off at my detailers tomorrow for the week to have the Ceramic Pro coatings done. I will post pics as I get them from him. Meanwhile I'm starting to order my electronics and stereo equipment. Stay tuned!

I did manage to change the trailer wheels out Friday. I also have a new fender on order as one has a small dent in it. After I get it I’m going to go through the terrible process of polishing the trailer.

Update on the detail and Ceramic Coating.... My detailer has to be one of the best guys in the business. He has spent 10 days on the detail so far and the results are incredible. Here is a teaser pic of the gelcoat after the detail and polishing has been completed. The depth and reflection of this 10 year old gelcoat is unreal. It will only get better when the Ceramic Coating is applied. I'll have final pics on Sunday

I know. The guy is such a perfectionist that he wonít let it leave the shop until itís as perfect as possible. Itís almost impossible to find someone like that anymore. I should have better pics tomorrow

Went to check on the boat today. We pulled it out in the sun to take a look after the ceramic coating was finished. I can honestly say that the black gelcoat is more flawless and deeper than anything you could get straight from the factory. I am in awe of how beautiful this boat is and what a difference Paragon Detailing has made. Kurt is the best I’ve ever seen at his job. The results speak for themselves. It is going back in the shop now to have the fender replaced and he is going to polish out the trailer. Tuesday it goes to start the stereo install. Stay tuned!

OK, OK, we all see that it can be made to gleam like it's the pride of the boat show. Very nice! Now you're going to deck it out with enough electronic bling to where we're all jealous and beating a path to Onslow's door to get the next available build slot just from the pictures.

But when are you going to give it a good sea trial comparison against the other boats in your vast history of the top-tier competition?

Don't wait too long, get that bad girl out there and put her thru her paces. There's are a whole bunch of cold windy days coming just around the corner and I want to hear your opinion before the spring thaw!

I had hoped to do that this past weekend but he wasn't done with the detail. I picked it up tonight and took it straight to my stereo guy and he will have it all this week. However, this weekend I will have it in the water and running through the ocean. I will report back!

Thanks for the comments guys.

Got a couple pics tonight when I picked her up. Had the trailer polished out and it really makes the entire package look great. Ameratrail sent me the wrong fender so I’ll get that changed out when the correct one comes in.
