My point is that if someone asked you what you thought the most comparable competitor to the 38SFC was, what would your answer be?
EXACTLY WHAT i WAS THINKING - BEEN 62 IN THE ZSF W/3 250'S - 66 W/3 275'S - 70+ IN MY ZFO W/3 275'S - What the heck is the competition then.........

Every 38ZSF we've sold did low-mid 60's depending on power...not bad for 10'6" beam / 14,000 lb

I'm interested what the Cig Top Fish will put up for numbers with its 10' beam and trips.

When we slowed down to our competitor's top speed of 42 MPH, we were getting 1.4 miles per gallon (MPG), compared to the .7 MPG of the competitor's boat. That's a 100 percent savings on fuel due in part to our unique hull design and a racing boat design adaptation applied to our cruiser line."

I've never been much of a fountain fan, but their pricing always seems to be right and 90mph out of HO's on a 35 is hard to argue. If I were looking to buy a new boat right now, I would take a look at one of those.

In those picks do I see the saftey wire off the intakes of those sealed stock motors

I wonder if what they did to the new 35 what would happen if they did that to the 38 & 42? Just think if ya put Whipples on that 35 and picked up 20 more MPH.That would beat alot of cats.
