    Well I put in an offer on the subject boat. It is a 2003 with 400 hrs. Maybe I'll hear today. I must be out of my mind. She's a beauty.

    Though it doesn't matter what I think, I think you'll reliably be running molasses from Cuba in style and comfort.

    Questions will come up:
    Surveyed?
    Which of 3 engine options are on this?

    Nice choice.
    Tom, I didn't know you were a boatman as well. We now must imbibe together. Much to discuss.
    Magnum 70 spins my crank too. Sadly TX has little room for the real boats. Gulf is not great here. :(
    Andrew, here's a 56 Manhattan, your pic was a 56 Predator.

    That's what she said.

    Why, it's Texas-sized, of course

    As a friend/Texan/drummer is fond of saying:
    "Sorry, honey, it's only 'bout as big around as a beer can... but I got length."

    The 56 Sunseeker has the 800 hp Cats in it. When I was in south France I saw several Mangustas, all very large. That's too much for me but they are beautiful. In San Troupe they were lined up and drew a crowd when docking.

    Deal not final. I will have a survey and a sea trial within 14 days of resolution of the deal. Any leads on good and inexpensive insurance? Good and insurance probably should not be in the same sentence.

    Unfortunately for Robert, I can't make a recommendation other than to call a reputable independent insurance agent in his area. I have no experience trying to obtain coverage for a boat that size.
