Looks like you "under-bought" on the trailer?

Sometimes 'ya gotta' remember to spend some money underNEATH the boat, too!

VERY nice! 75ft. or so?

Yeah, longer than 75 feet.

A RAV4 will tow that with no problem.

Wow...I could give out $1000 bills to everybody I have ever met and would still be a penny pincher compared to the owner of that pretty boat.

You put it on the trailer the wrong way silly.

Bummer, I wanted to watch it roll past my house and I'm stuck in NJ. They must have started it as soon as they finished the other Marlena (see below) Maybe 41kt cruise wan't enough?

Is that being moved to Hinkley? I heard it cost $70k to move from Commerce Road to Hinkley. For those unfamiliar with the area, is only a couple of miles.

Was just coming out the door of Jim Smith first time I drove past it yesterday. I'll guess it's the Marlena replacement, I was in the shop when they were building the first one..swear you could crawl up the exhaust pipes (exhaust tunnels?).

Moving them (Jim Smith, Garlington, Willis) is a real chore, and an interesting process. Martin county certainly didn't help the process..another monumental goof by county engineering.

Yes the boat is being moved over to hinckley. The builder is in the commerce park. There are many builders not on the water in stuart
