@CobraBob i know I’m way late. This is my first attempt at making a video, feel free to critique! I think there’s to much movement in the pictures, might slow them down.

That is one hell of a boat! Wow! Gorgeous beast. Did I read that speedo gauge right. 100pmh at 3/4 throttle. :eek: That's moving out. What an engine.

Nice work on the video. You did a great job. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks Bob! Yup, that speed is correct. We’ve ran it out to 110-112 with 5 of us on board, a lot of rpm left too! It accelerates so hard the GPS speed jumps up in increments of 5-10mph, so we may have been faster? Thanks for the video comment, did it on iMovie, very user friendly.

Not sure yet.
Keep us posted if you find something.

Whatever it is it will have enough amenities for us weekend on it (A/C, fridge, head, etc)

I'm looking at a 2000 Baja outlaw sst 25. Have any of you guys had one? Good boats?
Sure did. 03 sst yellow. Solid boat, handled lakes very well. Never had an issue with it. Gets up on plane with a full load no problem, tubed behind it, runs around 62-65mph. Once you dig into it the Baja rigging quality shows, but most don’t get that far. Any specifics you’d like to know?

How long have you been boating? I guessing MANY years.

It’s a hobby my father and I share together. I’m only 25, I do all maintenance and troubleshooting on these units. You learn a lot fast when you’re the one doing the work. Also fortunate enough to have good friends in the offshore community.

I'd love that 27'

It was an amazing boat. Loaded Cobia 277 with twin 250's, dual 12" Garmins, Radar, down and side scan sonar. Unfortunately our good friend died suddenly of a heart attack last summer and wife sold the boat as it was filled with memories. They put 450hrs on it in less than 3 seasons.

Sad to hear that your good friend passed. That's tough. 450 hours of time on that boat in 3 seasons is a lot of time and a lot of fun. Memories that will never be erased.

He was an amazing spirit and always smiling. They had just sold their business and had bought an F350 and huge Trailer to travel the US for 6 months. No kids, just a big pup and he had a massive heart attack at their first stop of the trip. Makes you step back and think for sure...

The one pic of the boat on the lift was their weekend house on the water. They also had two Jet Ski's that they would take out on days as well.

Have a few buddy’s running the key west poker run. Getting some sweet pics. Sucks being in the cold north and seeing all their fun.
