Back to the original point. I run a 28" BatBoat (72" chine-to-chine) with 600 hp and a DP-X. (92 mph, and solid as a rock.) Tantrum has seen it done...

Have you ever compared with a batboat equiped with a standard drive like Bravo one or Volvo SX?

Don't mean any disrespect, I just don't agree with what you first posted, thats all.

1000 hours is alot, are they all without the used of tabs?

I think you would love the tabs once you put them on your Baja, and get some time with them.

I say this because my last boat was a 24' 550hp that ran 80 mph, not tabs. And that boat was squrly in the slop. I moved to my Sun and the diffference was huge!

It's my third boat and I got over 1 000 hrs of experience. I don't think I am such a dummy pilot

What's the dimensions of those 280's?
3' to 5's I wish Lake Michigan got that flat.
