Ordered a boat today.

Postby rabbitdundied » Sat May 05, 2012 7:03 pm

I am taking the plunge and buying a boat after debating for ten years. I decided on an Edge 550x with a modified 25 horse Suzuki and a CMC tilt and trim. I ordered the boat with the "rhino" lining inside and out with the dark nat gear paint. The 25 Suzuki will allow me to use the boat on all Arkansas WMA as well as the river. I will give a complete report on the boat when it comes in. I am pumped and ready to hit the river.

How long was the wait? I have heard anything from 3 weeks to 14 weeks.

The one I am ordering is pretty customized for what I am going to do with it.

Placed the order for my 550 on Monday. I went with the dark Natgear, low deck, tm bracket, a few seat bases, and upgraded switch panel. Dealer is going to install a Panther tilt/trim and a 3 cyl Yamaha 25. I got lucky and found a nice trailer on CL for a steal! Can't wait for this thing to come in :biggrin:

Apparantly we both ordered close to the same boat from the same guy within days of each other. What made you go with the upgraded switch panel?

Post some pictures of that thing when it comes in. What kind of date did they give you to expect it?
