Default Canceled blackjack 256 coastal order (nothing negative with the blackjack)

After my wife saw the blackjack coastal and the bluewave 2800 pure hybrid (my second choice) she liked the bluewave a lot more due to the seating options. We have 3 kids and the blackjack doesnít have much for seating which was ok for a dedicated fishing boat, but we sold our powerboat and downsides to one single do all boat. With that in mind the bluewave is the better fit for us. On a positive note, the bluewave is huge and I feel it will handle offshore better if things get bad. I make runs 50-70 miles offshore on a regular basis and think the bigger boat should handle better with 18 degree deadrise and 3 extra feet of fiberglass. I will know in a couple weeks.

These pictures donít do the boat any justice. It is extremely nice in person. Itís going to be a long 3 months.

Congrats. Looking forward to seeing it and the performance numbers of the V8 Merc.

I really like the open layout and you’re at the right dealer. Wish I would have used them instead of who I went with.

if I ever went Bay/Hybrid/Coastal this is definitely on the list. I would be interested in what you are paying if willing to share -- PM is cool

Thanks.

I am still questioning some of my options, but I have 3 months to figure it out.

Nice looking lines. Love the open bow design and open transom area for a bay boat. Good choice in batteries too.

Iím guessing those will be the same batteries I get. That is a current bay model they are rigging right now.

Sweet!! They are by far one of the best looking boats around. I really like the layout of this model as well. Get them to add a seachest. It will save you a lot of pain and frustration.
