    I just shot my entire European vacation using my S9 and the 18MM and 58MM Moment lenses. I am really happy with the results so far.

    You want mid 80's -'92 Mako with the gas tank already replaced, preferably by a pro. That is a boat that will hold it's value, and it's value will be lowish, depending on the power on the back. Join...

    Only thing I can say is don't be in a rush. That is a sure way to end up with a money pit. Research the boats that fit...

    Big place here had that happen one too many times, and stopped renting.
