Thanks ya I know Steve, couldn't agree with you more. Hate drives and aft engine boxes but I like the look of the boat.

Neighbor across the street has one. The way the the hull is designed they pound like crazy in a head sea. It's almost like a tri hull which causes tHe boat to really steer hard. It is also really low sheared. The gunnels don't even come up to my knee. Not to mention his is an i/o which in my opinion doesn't belong in the ocean. I wouldn't take one if you gave it to me

Oh year I forgot to mention that it's a two piece fiberglas fuel tank and the caulking/adhesive they used to se ure the top breaks apart and falls not the gas which clogs the fuel lines and filter. He had to take cut a hole in the deck amebas tank.

There is one of those for sale on the side of the road on Rt177 in Westport, MA. I think it has an outboard on it. Bill Sartini, who is the brother of the late Roger Sartini, still builds ROS boats but I think under a different name. Bill is building a bracket for my Seaway. His shop is right down the street from the ROS boat for sale so I have been driving by it every week. I will probably go down there tomorrow. I can take some picture of the boat and get the phone number if you want. Let me know, Christian

I have been on this boat 2 times as it sits on the hard over the past six months or so. For what it is worth, its pretty rough looking for the advertised engine hours. Not for me!

Jim, I took a closer look at it yesterday. You're right it's quite rough but looks like a nice project.
