    at the end of the day hates off for trying something different, i think the tower belongs on more of a cruiser than a Battlewagon with 7200horse running nuts.
    its bit like a sports car without racing wheels... that hull is sexy thou.

    Very sharp. Won't that hull be fun to keep clean though. Some boat washer just boosted his business. :)

    rcoff, what year and make is that sportfish? Wow, cool looking. Must have been a hell of a pot he won to afford that baby. Care to say where on LI you spotted her?

    I know the captain and the boat- his old boat used to the be the other sportfish at my marina in Pt Lookout. Calling it a "Tribute" is said to be inaccurate by the captain. Quite a boat, that's for sure.

    I read about this boat a few months ago in Powerboat and Motoryacht. Supposedly the design is over 10 years old, but wasn't built until recently.
