Im new to this site. I own a 98 STV EURO with a 225 supermag Mariner,I love It .I've been boating on the Ohio river since I was born, thanks to my parents. I got interested in boating at an early age,all of my uncle's had fast boats. One uncle had a checkmate jet ,one had a sanger jet, and one had a stury with a 175 black max. My first boat was a 8' hydro with a 7.5 scott attwater ,WOW what fun at 12. Our family boat was a 1969 speedliner with a 125 merc, it would run 60 with a ss prop. My first boat was a 16' baja with a 115 evinrude, the 2nd was a 19' baja jet, my 3rd a 20'shadow RT with a 2.4 bridgeport and my final but not my last is my STV WOW what a boat. I still boat on the Ohio River near Madison IN. Me and my lovely wife drove to Wiggens Mississippi to buy our STV. You could say it was in my blood from childhood but it is now in my wife's blood to!
