the Tantrum is still at the top of my list but having a hard time finding one that i like that will still be available when im ready to pull the trigger. I like the lines of the sonic and need to stay in the 24' to 26' range.

MID 60'S AT BEST.
Drive one before you buy. They like to ride nose high.

Right,

My best was 67 gps. It is a Panzer tank not a Porshce. I ran this in the Miami-KeyWest poker run last year through some pretty crazy s#$t. I like the full head and galley (wife does at least).

With more power - when I rebuild it will be great - thinking raylar. Driving this smaller boat makes you a little fearless. It is really one of the most rock solid if not fastest. I have had a couple 27 Fountains and 25 Bajas back off in swell. No offense to those boats so nobody get testy.

It likes to porpoise a bit, like most singles, I upgraded to larger trim tabs and it fixed it for the most part. Sure does not chine walk like my old Shooter 272.

I also have full steering which I think is a must in any boat. I actually downgraded from twin 31 with 502s - got kids coming up on college.
