    Thumbs up

    Properly rigged with a Merc 300X or XS you should be able to click off 100mph. Progression is all pros and no cons vs other 21-22 foot v's. What year is the hull? Post or link to pics. Also check out ScreamAndFly.com

    Pro's = fun to drive, handle rough water very well for their size, fast, good construction, good looks, etc.


    I run a 24LD and I absolutely love the boat, very fun to drive.

    Don't think I've ever heard a bad thing about a Progression. They are supposed to be very well built. Definetely check out Scream and Fly, it would probably take weeks to read all the stuff about Progressions on that website.
    Good luck with it.

    Keni, are you by any chance a member of the "men of few words" club? Really, joined in 2005 and posted for the first time today? Welcome aboard (and out of the lurkers closet).
    Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way. B*tchin' about it ain't helpin'.
