That is one of my favorite 28 skaters. Got a chance to look over it at the Shootout.

Not sure which boat you are referring to, but I am pretty sure Havasu Cig is running 15x33's (I think they were cut down 34's). I know Charlie is using his low water pickups on his lowers just like you and I. He has about 8 sets of props he told me, I am pretty sure his fastest ones are 15" diameter. I looked at that boat and talked to him for quite some time when Jim and he came to our radar run. He just has an excellent setup. His motors are making a little more HP than stock 2.5's,but he told me with stock 2.5's he was in the mid to high teens. From what I have learned they have all run the highest numbers turning their props in. I have yet to try this as I have some pictures of my boat, and it is already lifted very high in the water.

Wayne Charlie's boat just amazes me. You know on my boat turning IN was 4-5mph slower, but of course my hull is not a skater. Somewhere out there is a set of 15 1/5''x34'' 3 blades, I thought they might be in Havasu. Just curious

I am running 15x33's (re-worked 15x34's) but would like to try some 14.75x34's. The props are currently turning out and I think I will probably keep them that way. I probably could pick up some speed spinning in, but the boats I have driven in the past with props spinning in don't seem to handle as well. Could be different on this hull though???

I might make one more trip to havasu this season and see if I can top 120. I might just try going another 1/2 inch on the motors but for everyday running they seem to be good where they are at.

Like I said above the boat is set-up great right now for everyday running abd that is what matters. I want to see what numbers I can pull just for the fun of it, but I would most likely go back to the set-up I have now for everyday use.

I had a 25 Eliminator with big power try and run me at Havasu the day I shot this video and I walked away from him with the gps reading 112 with two people in the boat. I think he was suprised that an O/B boat layed the wood to him.

110K CDN is about 95K USD. The boat has a full interior with the removable cockpit hatch. My brother, who set the boat up is gone until next week. Anyone who needs photos or info on the boat, please let me know.
