I have personally riden in and played with the tab/drive trim buttons on the Wave Hippie race boat. Apache Kid on this board used to own it. Small block 355's and the boat would run 80 mph in 3 footers. I ran with Jay from Grand Haven to Muskegon in nasty 4-6' conditions right next to a 32 Baja. We simply throttled thru the rough while the Baja had a more difficult time with it.Originally posted by SABER28
being a small company , i don't think they can afford to put the effort into racing like fountain does. they did however race a 28 in the past called "WAVE HIPPIE". i have a picture of it at least 5 foot out of the water, level as can be! racing nowdays is not something that boats like a SABER can be competitive in. is there even a class for a 28 foot boat with twins? what does a 28 foot boat run top end with hp500's?
As a honest to goodness boat whore (I sometimes jump boat to boat when mine is down or I don't have it with me!!!) I have ridden in and driven A LOT OF BOATS IN ALL CONDITIONS and I do have to say that the Saber 28 is one of, if not the best riding 28's on the market. The 28 Active Thunder being another, as well as SuperV's 28 Challenger. All VERY different boats, but all ride very well.
And yes, SABER28 does run his boat a lot, in all conditions, and ALWAYS makes me feel slow when he goes flying by me!!!!
