    I am looking at two boats. One is a 2011 local to me, AR240. Black 31k.
    Another is deancaster's boat. a 2011 242 limited S. 36k.
    Other than the upgrades done to teh boat. (stereo, nav etc.) What are the real differences?
    Color, bow lights, cabin lights (from the tower), and the rear washdown. Right? Stereo?

    Thanks a ton. Not sure how I missed that. I've been googling and searching the forum. My bad. That explains why the used LS's I'm finding tend to have better condition seats.

    I guess I'm partial to Deans boat as I "built" it, but aside from all the mods, also check the oil coolers on the AR. 2011's *can* have the failure prone coolers. I know for a fact Deans boat has the updated coolers.

    @veedubtek I thought I had read through all your posts on the boat but I must have missed any on that.

    I would be going to see Dean's this weekend but he will only have the trailer with the boat next weekend. I have an AR240 literally down the street for 5k less, just trying to compare apples/oranges.
