    Hi Jay,
    From all of those builds it sounds like you are much more accomplished than I am. im more of a tinkerer. i did scoop my hull down to the bare bones, but i had a professional build the new deck and transom. it is still a work in process.

    My Aquasport is down in FL until at least April, so im afraid i cant show her to you. ill probably bring her back before summer. Maybe then?

    Sorry, just noticed I had a message. I did'nt know this forum had pvt messaging. The 38 has been a Great boat for me. A very good multi task boat. Great for cruising with the kids, and very competent fishing offshore. I've encountered six to eight foot seas several times with no problems. Just have to slow down. I burn about 40 gph with a full load at 28 kts, but I've got the 490 hp common rail Cummins, which were not available on the year models you are looking at. Bottom line, I really love my Tiara and I'd buy one again in a heartbeat.

    I am looking at a couple of used 38 Tiara's. My price range is $200-$250 and the boats are 2001, 2002 maybe a 2004. Any thoughts as an owner? How does the boat handle in sloppy seas? i run offshore 50-60 miles off Charleston and get surprised sometimes. What kind of fuel burn do you realize.

    thanks for the info
