    Honestly, the FX HO's were/are plenty of power for me. I care more about long distance cruising than toying around usually, and don't need a supercharger grenading on me if I'm in the bahamas or something. Not likely I know, but it's just added risk for something I didn't/don't really need. Not to mention, I favored the color scheme on these.

    I can understand that. It is nice to only need 87 octane too. FX are awesome cruising crafts. I would have to say my VXR was probably my favorite machine ever to ride alone. Slow, but the hull handles awesome and the power was enough to be fun. I probably should have kept that ski.

    So it looks like you already replaced the Seadoo boat?

    Lol, yeah. Old post. ;). It's now 5 boats in 4 yrs? Lol. Sold the doo and bought a Boston Whaler conquest. Sold that and bought an FSH. It's for sale now, and it looks like I might be about to order a new Sea Hunt. Still on the fence.

    Oh, and yes. The VXR was an awesome ski. If it had cruise, I'd still have it.

    How do you like the FSH? I love the center console boats, but don't fish and worried it wouldn't be as family friendly.

    I agree. VXR should have cruiser or put trim on VX Cruiser HO.

    I am debating what to do with my ski situation. I should really sell both and get a GP1800. I also wouldn't be surprised if I upgrade to a 212 at some point in the next year or two if the family loves the boat.

    I love the FSH, and I don't really fish either! I only bought it as it was a good deal at the time, but it has 100% sold me on center consoles.

    That is interesting about the FSH. What is the most you have ever had on it at once?

    7. But that was way too many. 4 is comfortable, even with the bean bag chairs, but even that starts to slow it down.
