Would the 42 nonstep run well on ext. boxes??

Ahhh, yes, I agree....Konrads would def. be the way to go...Less work!

Wow, I'm actually learning from this site.
Plus maybe I could get a commission from Kurt.

Mines a 2000 Straight bottom.
I have a covergirl cabin.
Dry is #9800
I'm close to 680-700HP
It holds all of 280 gallons of gas.
I have XR's and take it easy on take offs.
Boat currently runs 83mph when light on gas.
The drives providing you tighten the top cap diligently and service the oil every 20-25 hours have lasted me 300 hours, I go out in the sh!t now and then.

I would not push more than 700HP with XR's and I think it is an excellent package.

It will never be the fastest rig on a flat day even if you have a Tiger that goes 100 but in the rough around 60-70 mph not many people will be able to follow without so serious punishment... to them and their boat.

Apart from a Tiger straight bottom with #6's I cannot think of a better boat for the use I get out of it.

Over all that it has exquisite lines, nothing abrupt anywhere and everything flowing. I love the boat, it corners like a Porsche never a hint of slip, rides the rough stuff like a champ rarely do you get jolted overall handling is predictable and superb. Granted they make some faster and with slicker bottom technology unfortunately they come with slicker rides also.

Those rides are all I dreamed of in an Offshore boat and I will have one like that for a very long time.

That last pic was a good run!! It was the '04 SCOPE poker run. We were running right around 95. That's my big bald head in the back with the yellow life jacket on and I think you can see Gerard (Semper Fi) in the pas seat in the extra small life vest!!

I was literally def in my left ear for three days from the blower motors screaming!
