steps started in 2000. Changed the cabin too (basically turned it into a vee birth from a full cabin) like stated above. Hull is more efficient.

Hmmmm, A 28 Skater or 30 Spectra would be awesome up here in Wisconsin!

Fast funning boat
Outboard so you can run out into the fall
Not to big so you can still hit a bunch of inland lakes & still run Winnabego
Not to bad to tow

I am thinking that might be the next boat or just the one you have

Jr.

Anyways, back to the cigarette talk......

Marchay,
Do some searching for Twin Step Top Gun, Tank did a good dissertation of the evolution of the gun. If I have a few minutes I can try posting a link to it.

Seems to be a pretty good jump in price also. Any nice twin steps out there for less than 100k ?

Thats cheaper than most I've seen. Seems like 120k is a popular number for them. I'm not in the market, just observing that the twin steps seem to command a healthy jump in price.

Thats not the only problem, we have to pay import taxes and VAT (20%) and then you have to pass all controls for EU certification
I just want a good boat for 70/75 mph thats fast enough but still like the twin steps
Many thanks for all the answers
