I wanna name the rig “White Privilege” but my wife says it’s racist. I find it freaking hilarious!!! But I have warped sense of humor.

Dude what were your lucky numbers on that lottery ticket?? That's what it would take for me to be able to buy a Vexus.

Had to look the manufacture up....super nice. Welcome to the aluminum bass boat community. You will be very happy with the transition. Give us a report on ride, speed,control and such. Nice shot bro...congrats.

This boat rides like a fiberglass boat. It doesn’t have that hollow tin can sound, it’s solid. With the 115 it runs 50 on the nose with me, my tackle and rods, full tank of fuel. So far, with what little seat time I’ve had, I’m happy with the ride, handling and overall quality of the boat. I haven’t felt out of control in it and it won’t let me do anything stupid with the trim. It stops you so far up. Idk what’s up with that, probably a safety feature. I do have one complaint, I can’t run at 3500-4000rpms on plane without it porpoising. I’d like to talk to a Merc rep about a whale tale or what I can do about that. I may also have tried to trim it too much for that speed. Idk. What I do know is I need more seat time with the boat to figure out what it likes and what it is capable of.

White Privilege is a joke me and a couple friends have amongst us. Anytime we buy something, could be a soft drink and we will make our little comments. But it’s obviously all white and my wife’s truck is white. Lol I called my Cajun “Hawg Snatcher” May name this one Hawg Snatcher II.
