My new vRide

Recommended Posts

srud

Well, it's been nearly 4 months since I first joined the former MBO site and announced that I would be the proud owner of a brand new bu'bie, I mean vRide. We took delivery (after a couple of false starts) last Friday. I have to say that the team at MN Inboard is top notch. They know how to treat a customer! Having never owner an inboard or v-drive, I could only compare to our previous boat, a Glastron GX185. I did test drive a number of boats last year but time had faded the memory. After spending now, 4 hours with her on the water, all I can say is WOW! Here are a couple of pics for you.

interesting, I had never owned, driven or even rode in a v drive before I bought my 2001 sunsetter vlx this winter. My previous boat was a Glastron S/F 180.

BTW, nice boats guys.

Awesome rides guys.

srud-> What kind of siding is that on your house? From the pictures it looks like it has some sort of weird overlap.

For some reason when I downsized the pictures the lines on the siding distorted. It doesn't really look like that. The siding is just the normal stuff you get these days.

Nice looking ride. You must be real tall or the picture must make the racks look like you mounted them high.

You bring up a good point. I am going to look into lowering them.

You don't want to lower them now. Because once there up there they rub the paint off.

I can't seem to to input "Go Sonics" in green letters. Everytime I try it looks like you see below. So, I'm having fun with it now. If anyone knows what the heck I'm doing wrong, please let me know.
