Question Any thoughts on a 28' Prototype...

Anyone have any experience with these boats/bulider? Looking for all opinions...It's a "new" 1999 model with a 500EFI. Getting ready to purchase....

Take it out for a ride. if you like the ride, quality and the performance then reach behind your back and grab that thing in your pocket that has a bunch of blank pages and write out a check man. I think they are a pretty cool looking boat myself, but have never seen one in real life. let us all know what you think of the boat .

Is this the same boat Brian Hollis ran a couple years ago? I thought they were going to do well in F1, but have only seen that one boat..??

Like Wildchild suggested...take it out & see how it feels to you....

Good Luck

Yea, its the same boat. I don't think it's the EXACT boat that he ran though. This one is #6 out of the mold. The seller bought the hull as a plug and purchased the 500EFI/Bravo drive package seperate and had the boat rigged. It's got hydraulic steering to the helm and Gaffrig gauges/throttle/shifter. After that, there's not a whole lot more. No swim platform either. Just exactly the way I like em'. There's only about 50 hrs on the whole package. Should make a great Poker Run Boat!
I'm scheduled to meet them next weekend and go for a ride. I'll let ya know what I think....
