So in final stages on closing deal on a 1999 oceans 40 express. I boat of Merrimac river and have been for last 6-7 seasons. My two prior boats were a 96 Pursuit Denali then my recent 87 Silverton 34C. Ive sea trialed the vehicle and was over joyed by amount of control compared to the silveton, really no comparison I know. Interested in any other insights to this unique model ocean. Two major factors in my decision to go this route rather then a 42 egg were the versatility. I want to go out more and fish. I didn't want a dock queen in this stage of my life. Anyways thank you all and look forward to this forum and its combined wisdom and knowledge.
