what kind of boat is that.. someone needs to school me on boats. I recently got interested in getting a boat. considering I live like 150yds from Lake Erie I figure I should have one. How much did you pay for that badboy? I kinda just want something small yet haul able (w/ a ranger) for skiing and dicking around in.

It is a 21 FT four winns liberator 454.Paid 8G's like 10 years ago. That was a hell of a deal. Cuz with a 350 in them they are still worth 8G's. 454's are rare in these boats. Would not rec to tow behind a ranger.

My buddy has a jeep Liberty or sumthing like that with a 6Cyl and tows a 18 foot four winns open bow That tow's wakeborders good. And the jeep pulls it decent.

You should be good with around 18FT. There is not many boats i heard bad about. Like four winns welcraft are good boats. I mean its up to you every boat is going to have its up's and downs just like trucks. I will talk more tomorrow i have to go to bed.

I want a boat like you got man. you sure i can't haul that with a ranger, haha. that boat is slick I didn't know it had that little cabin area that's cool. you got all that for 8 grand that seems like such a steal. do they make 18ft with the cabin also?

Do you use your boat as often as you thought you would when you bought it? how often do you get out usually? I'm just trying to figure out if im going to lose interest after a while and maybe I should consider getting a older mustang to toy around with instead. what do you enjoy more your stang or the boat?

Thanks for the pics btw.
