    lots of stories and rumors

    probably the best thread on the net about Mr. Moll and PQ is on OSO

    http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...d.php?t=115333

    THis has been going since last October, and was updated yesterday with info from folks who live in the area and drive by.

    Right now one of the best buys in my never to be humble opinion is the 290 enticers, good lines, great ride, decent performance and they hold a ton of stereo (high 60s, low 70s) true deep V 24 degree, and twins (and have fridge, head, microwave and pressure water). The 280 Silencer is also a good buy for the single. BSB had one that he did awesome things to and if flat flew.

    I picked up my 290 last year for a song and it has been a solid boat and I would not hesitate to get another. The one I found had every option (502s, full hyd steering, k planes, Kiek controls, leather interior in the cabin etc.) the 90-95 boats were made, according to folks who have been PQ fans for a while, with better attention to detail and quality then some of the newer ones.

    The PQ forum on OSO is full of knowledgable folks who are more than willing to help out

    Good luck

    I had a 1994 29 Entice and loved it. Like Christian said nice lines, roomy cabin and cockpit and decent GPS readings Having a hard time finding a relacement! Extremely solid boat

    A buddy of mine is putting his 26 legend up for sale, 1998 with a 454 mag efi, super clean boat will be in the classifieds shortly

    Whats that you say, no motor on the back!I guess the next thing you will say is that it has no trolling motor plug on the front of the boat either. well, thats crap and crazy talk, and I'll hear none of that.

    I had a smaller 21 foot powerquest ski boat. Loved it and sometimes miss it, until I remember trying to get from PB2 to Party Cove on a holiday weekend at noon. Great boat, never had anything come loose like some of my friends with there Maxums and Bayliners. I would own another one in a heart beat! Just tough to find.
