That's a great response.......

When you have no facts to back up your argument, call the other boat a "funny" name.....

You must rule the 4th grade playground.

ON the Chip, knowledge in rough water race conditions isn't needed here they have plenty......and it sure isn't a streched anything. It is an ALL NEW design.
As for lightweight, it's lamination is massive overkill for ANYTHING you can dream up.

It is a great speed for the power in a 28 vee,,,,,,,no matter how light it is, or how it's set up. Not everyone races, and there is a bunch of nice water available where people would love to drive that Tuff28. As long as it meets the needs of the consumer that buys it,,,,,,,,,,Right?

Winter must be setting in.

There are quite a few assumptions being made about his boat on this thread by people that have not seen it, been in it or even asked about it. They just feel they need to toss in there often biased opinion.
This boat is A LOT more capable in rough water than it has been assumed. Mark did state that the only thing he can relate to you is that it is smoother than a 29 Fountain (from Fountain owners, not him).. a lot bigger boat. Which incedently is another pad vee ( notice that On the Chip ).
Before any of you make assumptions......... go for a ride.

I have nothing against a 29 Fountain but that's not a great rough water boat by the way. I 've been on this board since 2000 and I've taken plenty of heat. I've also been building offshore race boats since 2000 and I've never even built a full blown pleasure boat. All of my boats have been race boats and our record speaks for itself ( close to 35 wins in rough water) and National and World Titles. I have nothing against the TUFF or the maker. It looks like a great boat and I wish him the best but expect competition and talk on this board if you want to come on here bragging about speeds , etc. Back it up in the ocean in OPA and then we'll buy you a beer. Also the pictures you enclosed are all cats. I have a little North of The Border experience by the way , I won the 1999 Canadian Grand Prix / Toronto in F1.

PS. You ragged me pretty good this Spring for building Tyler a solid glass bottom in our new 26 Joker. Rack up another Championship for the 1st 26 we built. Also call Tyler and ask him what his favorite boat is that he's ever owned.

I think all of you are crazy,a 27 activator with 525efi runs in the low 90s and can race OFFSHORE.The activator is a proven winner.this huff thing is a streched 21 superboat,lightweight no freeboard.take that out in 4 footers at 90 and you wont be coming home with much left.The joker guy is right on the mark.THE HUFF BOAT IS NICE FOR A LAKE BOAT.For the money I would like to be able to thrash it offshore as well as take the family out.If you want I will test it for you
Everyone is free to speak their mind, you can even make fun of my name... BUT I do take offense when someone claims that I copied the TUFF 28 from something else.
Yes the TUFF 21 is related to the Challenger,
BUT I did not spend hours with the CAD guy drawing out the lines of the TUFF 28 and testing with model after model to have someone claim it is a stretched Challenger. If you actually came here and looked at both the 21 and 28 you would see the lines are different and no proportion are the same. ... And I guess the new TUFF 15 that I'm designing is just... what...a squished Challenger... Can no one other that George draw anything? Come on!

Settle this like men. A shootout on Georgian Bay - no matter what the weather - Summer 2008.

Georgian Bay can get downright nasty. Ocean has nothing on it - nothing.

Anyone can throttle your boat and win, it drives itself
