The BEST one! As Indyboater says: "The Swiss Army Knife of Boats". A 240. Unlike most products that try to accomplish too much, this one does everything well. \:D

The 246. Nice low freeboard for a long sleek look (well, as family bow riders go )

Rides big through the chop and nimbly through the turns. A big sunpad and a huge cockpit.

XS, ditto. Had it out in some nasty chop the other day (25-30mph wind). Impressive ride...turns like it's on rails.

Gotta love my 262, classic navy. Replaced '90 252 which was the first year it was built and it was a nice boat, but no comparison really.

Also, the guy I bought my used 2001 from called yesterday while I was on the road just to tell me his new 2004 had just come in. Happened to be within 25 miles of dealer so stopped in to have a look. What a beauty. He ordered the new custom color combination available this year. It was solid black, even a little above the rub rail. He had the trim stripe at the bottom in beige, taupe or whatever you want to call it. It was very classy looking. Same color combination as a new Cobalt 343 I had seen last month at Village Marina at LOTO. Now that was some boat.

Live less than 10 mins to Grapevine, but I have dry storage near Lewisville.

SilverDawg, how about you?

My 206 is my first powerboat. I love it. Lots of storage space, big sunpad (which the Admiral really likes), lots of power to get up and go, great ride. Bought her new.

The height of my hitch is 18 inches.
