good luck with new 2002 28' skater Eric and i ran his boat on sunday let me tell you. that boat handles some nice water.,but not every boat is rigged with a ballast tank and tabs and not talking about a tunnel tab. yesterday it was pretty windy out on the great south bay.We were running 100 to 105 in a good 2to3 foot chop. the boat is incredible.I thought my 28 had a great attitude.But getting back to your question it all depends on engine height,prop,wieght,fuel,and sea time. give me a call ill help you with any questions you have. I'm in bay shore good luck!
