Default Who runs a 20' or smaller boat?

I know most of you run bigger boats. But who here runs a 20' or under "performance" boat ? I sold my blackhawk and picked up a 19' boat. It does what I need it to, floats, looks good, goes fast(well, not fast enough!) and handles rough water great for it's size.

Anyone else? What kind of power and speeds are you running?

Traviss, very nice Power Play! I've always liked those boats.

35mph flat out hah? I would have expected at least 40!

He won't tell. I think there is something going on in the Miami Skunkworks on that engine. Too many FedEx packages heading south. BBC, I do know that.

I can appreciate being secretive. I do the same thing locally with my boats and snowmobiles!

Did your boat come with a big block?

Hey, I'll add another Donzi to the mix. Faster than 40 but I'll be looking at the transom of Scott and Traviss.
