    Hall's propeller is by far the best shop for serious high performance prop work. Everyone is starting to use them on the racing circuit. He will lazer check the blades, clean it up, throw in a few secrets and wham you got a minimum of 2-3 MPH. Give him a call and tell him your a friend of mine for a discount 407-568-5506 ask for mike.

    As far as the boat coming apart Mr.Cain, If you dont cut me off I wont ram you!!!!!!!!
    Right Mike!! LOL LOL LOL

    I thank all for the nice comments.

    My 288 Sunsation fully outfitted with an a/c weighs 4,500 lbs...

    It seems to be the average weight for a 28 modern footer...

    Saw the VR-1 at the CHI boat show. Very sleek looking, but not a very tall boat at all, which is probably why it's fairly light weight. Reminds me kinda of a 22 Scarab look, low and sleek.

    The appearance may lead one to believe it's not a great "rough water" boat as most good rough water boats are taller. We shall see, as time will tell

    Some might argue the Edmond Fitzgerald was not a good "rough water" boat. DOH!

    What does everybody think about the way the sides are angled in at the chine? I’m sure it has something to do with providing less wetted surface (i.e. lower hydrodynamic drag coefficient) but wouldn’t it also give it a higher tendency to roll?

    I did see the boat run in a race on Speedvision a few weeks ago and it was tearing up some pretty decent sized chop.

    as for the weight of the boat - last spring/summer there was a great short article in PB or Hot Boat about Velocity's new design F1 - from what I remember, Steve said that they built the boat as light as they could and kept testing it until it "didn't break" - then they knew that they had the right construction....

    Looks like they found it - good luck Scott - great looking boat.

    The reversed chine area is major part of the hydro-performance. It plays a different role at different speeds. I would love to tell you in detail, but it's TOP SECRET. Notice how I said role and not ROLL!!!!!! Like I said,
