I am no longer a Moomba owner. It's been a great run. Great to know all of you. Good luck in the future. I wish you all the best. Think of me when you enjoy your wings & Yeungs together. Bye.

You guys kill me. I'm "in the market" as it were. Nothing but a Moomba for me -- but time to hunt down the right LSV.

I do appreciate the sentiments from all of you but I'm not going anywhere. I was just having fun after I sold my first Moomba today and so I am boatless for the first time since around 1996.

Please send my way any '07-'09 deals you see. Thanks!

Thanks, Doc, but I'm on the LSV. The XLV won't fit in the garage or I'd have one in mine already. I had to pass it up.

when I sold my 2003, I was boatless for about two months.

e

holy smokes- the day before I picked up my Moomba I told myself it was the last day ever that I would be boatless! I never even thought of what might happen should I sell it someday!

When ever im sad i goto the garage and there she is and i smile. Everytimg i hook her up to the truck and look in my rear view and see her i smile.

With her at Exile for the last month i have nothing to make me smile.

If i sold her and didnt have one while i was looking id drive AWS crazy hanging out wiht them to see and touch the boats LOL

Dang, guys, I appreciate the help but it has to be an '07 or '08 LSV (I'd look at an '06 too, I guess), but nothing from before that.

Edit: I should explain that I have 6 kids so I should be in an XLV but it won't go in the garage so I'm definitely in the LSV-- but it has to be the one after the '06 hull change cuz it's bigger. Thanks to all-- better to throw it out there just in case, right?

What the H! I'm gone for like a few hours and the whole place is gone to pots. You know I get enough emails from you guys on a weekly basis that a little heads up would have been nice. Heck I even had plans to race your Outback at Sinclair this summer :) Guess I'm the only ski boat now, well besides Z but he seems to be missing these days.

As for the XLV vs LSV. I'd look for a bigger garage at the same time, you know kill 2 birds with one stone as it were :D

Quiet down!! She'll hear you. Donna's been bringing up the house thing again. It's been a year since we bought the lot. I think spring does that to them. I said, "You're the realtor. Sell this place; I sold the boat."

Hey just have her send me the plans and I'll GC the place to get this project moving! I'm thinking 4 car garage minimum :)

Hey Kane, I've been thinking about selling my boat and getting a supra at the end of this season ... for the right price I could move that date up to the start of this season. (LOL) :p

Kane keep in mind that the '07 was the first year of all stainless interior accessories like the interior grab handles and cup holders. '06 and below had those in plastic.

Kane,

If you're interested Atlanta Marine has a few left-over 2009 LSV's. You being the educated buyer, might be able to "steal" one in this economy. They gave us a pretty good deal on our 2009 Outback V.

Look at it this way, you could always have a stop over at Sinclair on the way home.

Good Luck!

moombadaze
03-06-2010, 01:37 PM
well they do have a blue/back 09.

just have to wait and see, hope he can swing by my place on the way home with it and have a cold beer.

Ummm ... Beer! How I miss it! (lol) I can't drink at work. Sometimes that's a month at a time! I'm Irish. You know how hard it is for an Irish Marine to go a month without a beer? (lol) :???:

Wow that was fast. For the buying public this economy is just great, find an 08 the dealer is dying to get off there floor plan, what could be better?

Finding a '09 for the same price! LOL JK

Didn't he say he didn't want the XLV because it wouldn't fit in his garage or something like that? But the LSV did???

Yeah, that's why he's looking at building a new house at the same time :D LOL

Funny yacking with him the other day he still wasn't sure what he was buying, or that is the impression I got. Now Daze is the lone insider? Hmmm, and no word from KB yet? Wonder is his wife killed him in his sleep for buying a new Supra ? :D JK I know its a family sport for them.

Congrats Kane.. I have been MIA for a bit and missed most of this! You'll love the new LSV... I love mine.. but it is currently doing Hard Time in Winter Jail in Bloomfield, NY... We're hoping to get her out on good behavior in April.

You could always step it up a little more and buy a SUPRA!

Woops.... sorry, had to say it. :) Did I just say that out loud????

I wish I could sell Mine. I would love to go up to the nest level. Either the XLV or the Supra 24SSV. If the economy was better for the construction industry here in Vegas, It would be for sale now.

Sorry, but we actually looked at a Supra and the inside seems smaller than the lsv. I think it's because the seats are bigger with more padding. We need the floor space as much as the seats. It was strange really. If the XLV would fit in the garage, I think that's what we would have bought. AND not that we would leave it outside, it wouldn't fit on the side of our house. AND our builder said it will take 4 to 5 (which means 6) months to build the house...we wouldn't want an xlv outside that long. Storage places cost more a month than you think.
With all this said, we're very happy with the lsv that we bought. It's kind of plain which is fine with me since I'd really like to be invisible. Kane on the other hand.... It's in the garage awaiting it's break in period. Next survey....naming the new boat....any suggestions?
Take care. Looking forward to seeing or meeting you soon. And remember if you want vacation property ( or to relocate) in Florida PLEASE CALL ME! I have boat payments to make! LOL :cool:
