OSO member C-Spray has a 28' boat of this design. Perhaps he will chime in, or PM him.

if you jump in the water, im guessing you need to climb up the outdrive?

stupid questions, but just looking for some insight.
like Sydwayz said. do a search for user member C_Spray or batboat and you should find lots of info.

There was another OSO member with a 500EFI on the west coast. Tom A. is his name I thought.

The wings have a surface effect lift. one ran in A- class , years ago and dominated, then they outlawed the boat for that class. one use to run P-4 as well, and if he didnt have mechical problems did fairly well.

I was lucky enough to ride along in a poker run with C-Spray in his B-28. I'll try to answer the questions I know the answers to.

1) Docking wasn't too bad. He uses a very large ball type of fender places just in front of the wing to keep the wing away from the dock. And he uses a special fender that is made to slide over a swim platform for the wing. Chuck (C-SPray) makes docking and tying up look simple.

2) The wings on his boat are EXTREMELY sturdy. His is also a true Ocke Manerfelt design (Kevlar) Sturdiness depends on construction.

3) Chuck's boat doesn't have an easy way to get out of the water but I think I saw one advertised about two years ago which had a custom swim platform.

As for the wings I would have to say I believe they do create lift. The boat rides very light yet straight and safe feeling. On the occasion we caught air it did settle back in without a harsh back breaking landing.

I will try to scan in some pictures I have on film from the poker run. Here are a few off chucks web site. Check it out. There are multiple pages of pictures.
