And here is photos, of one with the "social" rear hatch, if you can call sitting on a 1075 in a 21ft boat social or sane....

If you ever get a chance to see one of these boats run they are amazing, the share acceleration is insane, standing on the edge of the river, you can hear them coming along way off, you see them round the bend then spool up on boost (turbo boats) and there off..

I wonder how many Merc 1075/#6 packages are throttled by a hot foot

Looks like they did a nice job on the pleasure hatch, but even on flat water, I would want some Oh Chit handles

I love seeing stuff outside of my usual market, different thoughts, I think those tabs a real clever.

I also thought that the 1075 was too big for my TUFF 28... I guess I need to rethink some stuff... see... outside influence.

totally serious, not only do they have two skiers out back, they are racing down a narrow river, and overtake other boats, these guys are running flat out for over 20mins of racing.

big big balls....

If the boat was 28ft we would be trying to find a way to stick two 1075's in it :-)

Seriously though I am sure your 28ft would more than capable of handling it once set-up correctly.
