    I finally made the decision to buy a new boat. I went to Stuart, Florida to sea trail a 2008 Cape Horn 31 w/twin Yamaha F250 four strokes. The boat is a fishing machine! I am going to pick the boat up in early February after all of the electronics are installed. I bought the boat in Florida because of the great deal that the dealer made with me on price and installation of electronics. Here she is...before and after I added a couple of decals... ;)

    Great looking boat! As a sooner fan I'm not too sure about that decal but if you need a deck hand give me a call.

    The CHs are known to be fairly efficient hulls. I am not sure about the new hulls. I believe they are a little heavier and more glamorous than before. I love the boats. Give us the details!

    Guys,

    Richard is a cattle rancher, what makes you think that decal has anything to do with the University of Texas.

    After hearing you all talk, I'm kind of worried about driving through Louisiana!

    Gunsmoke...

    I will invite you and Mr. Bill down for a fishing trip after I am comfortable with the boat and have some fishing spots that I want to "show off". Just promise not to put the boat on the bottom of the Gulf as you would with other fishing gear that you don't like...<grin>

    We Sooners appreciate your restraint.

    Climbed all over the Cape Horn at the boat show and loved it, seriously kicks ass.

    Great looking boat 'cept for those god awful decals. I guess no one's perfect.
