We have a 1995 with twin 300 promaxes. Great rough water boat and a lot of fun. It is rigged better than most boats out there today. With the setback of the bracket it does porpoise a little at slow speeds. However, once it gets up and running, it screams.

Call OSO headquarters and ask for Steve and he can tell you all you want to know about Powerplays. He can also get you in touch with ED. You refer to the 98 for sale but do not link to it so we can give you no information.

There was a 28 with twin 350s that was in the classifieds this past spring...looked like a nice boat and I was going to consider it but it sold before I had the cash to purchase. I exchanged a few emails with ED about it, like stated above, the 33 mold was dammed to create the 28. I don't know about the ride, but considering it's bigger sister, it should be a heck of a boat.

Here's the link. Talked to the broker today, said lots of work has been done recently could be good or BAD! 230hrs 1 engine new due to water reversion, re painted bildge currently doing guages, cabin is rough...

where can I get the # to Steve???

I know someone that looked at the one with smallies in it and said it was spotless!!! and worth the $$$ but I wasn't in the position at the time either...
