Hi all. I have been lurking here for years but didnt register till now. Thought id share my experience with my 261. It has t/260s with alphas. Ive owned it since 94 & have run out of grand haven all these years. I had it painted & redid the cockpit back in 98, its all white now. The boat is very heavy & solidly built (overbuilt). Probably why its taken the lake michigan beating for all these years with no problems. It has a lot of room both in the cockpit & cabin. Ive ridden in & driven a lot of boats in the big lake & this one crushes the waves as good as any in this size range. Only major b*tch ive had is the alphas not counter rotating. Makes it quarter a little wierd, but you get used to it. Top speed also not that great, 55-60 but its a rare day on lake michigan you can run faster than that with passengers. Hope this helps.
