The Howard 28 is a nice fast boat but only has a 22.5 degree dead rise. Not ideal for running in the Ocean. A 24 degreee is usually prefered.

I couldn't find the Shiada's 32 dead rise but I think it is less than 24 degrees.

Hi Derrickc,

I will have our new twin step Pantera 28' with recessed hull sides in the water real soon. 1st boat powered by a single 525 EFI Merc. This new 28' will be available soon since it is being custom built for our dealer in the North East.If you are interested in a rough water boat shoot me an email at [email protected]

Transportation to the West Coast is no problem.

We also just did new cockpit dashes for our 28' model.

Why are you limiting to just "west coast" builders? Just curious.

We build Active Thunders on the West Side of Pompano Beach, FL if that's any help.

Really? I don't think you will hear a Lavey, Howard, or Schiada stress crack. And the riging of a Howard or Schiada is second to none.

I'm more familiar with the east coast builders having grown up in Chicago. Just wondering about the west coast guys since I'm in Cali now.
