Stop by Southeast Adventures Outfitters or reach out to them on social media. They are locals who spend a lot of time paddling those waters and can put you on some spots. Nice folks too.

Hey, I'd be interested...

The rate of innovation plus the way the tritoons hold value has me looking at brand new boats instead of used, and I've ALWAYS bought used on cars and boats! Plus tritoons under 25' with bigger power...

I've been thinking about a tritoon lately too, for trailering to the lakes around Central Georgia and gunkholing around the marshes and creeks on the coast. I love how a traditional Vhull feels, but...

Somewhere in your area is a guy or a shop that's happy to work on old boats. There are too many of them around for there not to be. It's likely an old guy with a shop that doesn't even have a sign on...

I was just wondering if you'd sold her yet. If you still have it when I get my end of year bonus we will have to have some serious talks.

So here's a free bump to the front of the list.

Their top model is the 6.2L with a Roush supercharger on it. 575hp / 580ftlbs, available in a Supra wake boat under 23' long. Even if I hit the lotto I'm not douchebag enough to buy that boat but I'd...

Man that's nice! I've always thought the old V20s were cool boats. If I ever run up on a DC, open-bow hull without the I/O drive it might tempt me into building a vintage boat project instead of...
