If I were to go back to an I/O, it would be to something like a Cobalt.

But it "Will reach about 43-44 MPH planed out with a full load." with it's "Mercury 3.0 TKS engine"! Plus, "tandem-axle trailer made by Kustom Trailers and rides on 19" dub wheels wrapped in low-profile tires"

Anyway, just cracks me up a bit. That's a lot of work and money into a V6 I/O...

That's not a V6, that's an inline 4. There is no chance in hell that thing will do 40 MPH, let alone more than that.

That boat new before stupid add-on crap was less than what they are asking.

Just left an I/O back in june for our current sslxi. Man is it sweet! Wont go back to I/O unless I move to much rougher and bigger water area. Love not adjusting the trim constantly and the complicated outdrive. Not to mention the much deeper draft the I/O takes. My Malibu is great! Pulls hard, tracks straight!

Oh, goodness, an I-4. Must really roar when you drop the hammer. BTW, I'm far from serious regarding this boat...

That's a pretty LXi you have, I like the colors.

To be honest, the 3.0L Mercrusier doesn't sound that bad for a 4 banger. Good, no - but what 4 banger does sound good?

There is a crown line on our lake similar to this. Custom wrap tower and 6 jl tower speakers. I have no idea how much he has into everything but I just laugh to myself bc I'm sure for the price he has put into the wrap stereo and tower plus the boat he could have a decent used Malibu or other vdrive.

He is a real solid guy too. I've seen him get thrown out of the bar on our lake within 10 seconds of him stepping foot on the patio. Again just makes me laugh.

From this photo I now know to hang my arm over the back of the seat to squash out my bi's and tri's to make them look bigger for photo's :)

I had the i4 years ago and it would rev limit at around 108 so I'm calling bs :biggrin:

Looks like a real nice boat but I have learned one thing about boats and that is this, "Once you go inboard you never go back"...

Was trying to see the bright side (rough water ride, top speed, fuel economy, etc.) and be supportive but then I saw the 3.0 and thought "he's gotta be pulling our leg".

Thank goodness you were.

I would only see 47-48 out of my 18' Crownline with the 4.3L. If we had a full boat, one person (in addition to the two already up there) would have to walk up and stand in the bow to get it to plane. My Crownline was a 2008 and I only got $18,500 for it, and it is a much higher quality boat than a Maxum. Good luck buddy!!!

I did contemplate an IO but mainly because we have lots of salt water 2 hours away, especially where we normally holiday but love the drive, sound, and power from a V8 inboard and am more than happy to only boat in freshwater
