    My wife and I bought an Eastern Sisu at the show and are excited for the new boating season. We are blow boaters; gone to the dark side :D and look forward to cruising Narragansett Bay and over to Block Island.

    Congratulations and welcome.
    I see the HONDA but how many ponies they give you with that package?

    I've got a blue one that hasn't hit the water yet but it will be ready May 1. Still accumulating stuff for the boat, radar coming on Thursday. Have it registered but will have to do some hardware installation when the weather clears. Good luck hope we both made the right call.....

    The boat came with a Honda 135.
    We did a sea trial in October. Beautiful day but rolling seas, I was very happy on how the boat handle the waves. We didn’t go full throttle but at 12-13 knots. I was impressed.

    Pretty boat. Congratulations! Saw my first boat just like her at Boston Boat Show abougt 10 years ago.

    Kiss my ass for this "I'm a blow - boater" shit. There's not the first good boat driver on here who hasn't spent a bit of time on a sail boat.

    Your photo reminds me of being a kid a Christmas and getting a shiny red bike and not getting to take it out for a ride because of the snow; good luck!

    There are at least 3 new Sisu's waiting to get wet for the first time. Who's going to be first and of course who will be last? Pictures of the first splash will be needed as proof.

    You should be first, as you're "in possession". I'm going to have to make at least two trips to the Cape, for sea trial and final delivery.

    I just got off the phone with them. Engine is rigged (Yamaha 115) and waiting on electronics (Garmin Echomap Plus 74cv, and Standard GX2200 VHF). Plotter will be surface mounted and VHF mounted to the overhead.

    I'm going to run her back to RI on her own bottom. Need at least a 6 hour weather window.

    Looking for around 01 April give or take.

    There's 2 feet of snow all around my boat and ice out on Winnipesaukee isn't until mid March so we'll see when she hits the water. The boat was registered the first week in January. Early April is pretty early, good luck. Pack a hoody.
