    Congrats! I may be a little bias, but amazing boat! I piloted mine from NY to Florida and back - those Cats purred for 8 plus hours a day. Like some one else said on this thread, the easiest boat I have ever docked. She does whatever you ask her to do - Just be ready for her to do it. Best of luck!

    Congrats. You will love those 3126's. We do lots of 70-100 mile trips in open water. After having diesels I could never go back to gas in this size of boat. They are definitely easy to dock but I had a bow thruster installed anyways. Makes getting off the dock easier for both of us or if I'm by myself.

    I was in your shoes this time last year and understand the excitement and nerves! Love the boat, easy to handle, economical, room for family and friends. We hosted an impromptu dinner on ours last year during our club's week cruise we had 10 eating in the cockpit. My favorite spot is turning the captain's chair 90 degrees so it points at the bench seat and lounging there enjoying a cold beverage and greeting folks walking by on the dock... I wish I could take credit but the wife figured that out. LOL...

    Figured that out in mine too. It’s my go to spot. Makes a nice lounger. Great place to get out of the sun during the day and I like relaxing there with a beverage in the evening also.
    Have to confess that I’ve enjoyed several cat naps in that position too last season.
    We’ve had a dozen or so people on the boat for a day on the hook several times.
    We’re usually the largest boat in our little raft ups and people tend to gravitate to our cockpit and cabin.
    Just thinking about it has me missing the boat. Can’t wait to get back in the water.
