    Wait, only $39k for that 2100BR with 250XS?? Is your money suddenly cheaper than ours? Can't buy that boat in the states for $39k!

    New outboard powered Four Winns

    My pleasure! I like most of the design elements, but the rear seat back and swim platform area doesn't quite flow. The other pictures show that the seat backs fold down and expose some non-skid for reboarding, which is a good funtional desgn, but it sure ain't pretty. I've responded to my...

    I didn't know there was a Four Winns section in the gallery :rof: John, sounds like a nice family barge you're looking at there! IF you're like me though, you'll miss the Checkmate ride and speed.

    Thanks John! I've only owned two Four Winns so far. The first one was a 2003 Freedom 180 (which was really a 19' boat) that sported a Johnson 150 carb 2.6 liter V6, and this 2002 setup. That 150 Johnson could push that Freedom 180 to only 49 mph GPS. The current Four Winns runs 45 mph GPS...

    I'm extremely happy with this boat for tubing/family use. All composit, no worries ever about wood rot. It's only 17' long but very wide, I've had 9 people (adults and kids) inside comfortably. Keeping this boat for tow duty while looking for another 2000 or 2100 Checkmate for speed......

    2002 Four Winns Horizon 170 OB with 115 Yamahammer! Very rare boat. Four Winns bought some Yamahas when OMC went out of business. GREAT motor.

    New Lund A-14 on the way!

    Congrats! I may buy and sell my speed boats, but I'll ALWAYS have a 14' aluminum boat with a 15 horse motor on the back! Here's a picture of Alumacraft T-14V, back when I had the 15 Honda on it (now on the pontoon boat) and back when I had my second Checkmate, the Persuader:

    Best looking half ton?

    Tough question. I DO prefer the GMC over the Chevy version this year. The current Dodge looks good, and I've liked the current Ford F150. All very close I think. And it depends on color! I don't like the Nissan at all, and I only like the Tundra over the Chevy but not over the...
