Some like the drive of a Lotus Elise, others like a Bently GT.

that is one slick looking boat! love the lines! I think you should leave it alone... maybe a 700 as the most choice of motor. Start adding 100s of HPs just to get another 10-15 mph isnt worth it.

Its the weight that makes that boat fly! Great job on the construction!!

But that pad bottom really works -- WOW! Love the video.

I bet the Tuff with 600 will be at least 10 mph than the Howard. Just a matter of putting one in and lettin' in fly! Hail to the new 28' king!

Btw the pics are great, but it has to be seen up close to be truly appreciated

Thought I'd post this:

Boat with pad bottom hull Document Type and Number:United States Patent 5390624 Link to this page:http://www.freepatentsonline.com/5390624.html Abstract:A planing boat having a stern and a bow includes a hull having a generally flat central bottom surface forming a portion of a pad with the surface tapering from a specified width at the stern towards the bow. Reverse wedge surfaces blended with the central bottom surface at the stern and deadrise surfaces blended with the central bottom surface and intersecting with the reverse wedge surfaces continue forward towards the bow. The rear portion of the flat bottom surface is tipped upwardly towards the stern.

might be interesting to build a Howard 1000 lbs lighter with a higher X dimension and a 2" shorter drive and run some #'s to see how she does then

I know all of the tests the magazines published were done with the stock all around performing set up,,,,,for low end, mid range, with a decent top speed.

LOL,,,,,,You guys are funny......................................

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
