There are some awesome west coast wave crushers that can handle most anything...

Eliminators 43' Eagle is a awesome boat. I believe it has a scarab bottom.

Advantage 40' Poker Run

Nordic 35' Flame and 42' Inferno

Schiada - one word comes to mid, Quality. I believe that the 32' wins alot of offshore ski races.

I know there are more...

Not trying to be a dic but my old 22' Advantage had as much freeboard as your superboat.

My 27 has a little 10" swim platform but they do not include it in the length.

The Howard bullet 28 ran 122 with a single. Your boat must seriously haul ass.

I hear ya, but low profile give better stability and turning capability. Isn't that what people want? I like the standup freeboard for cruisers. If you going to race or drive aggressive I would take a Corvette over an SUV.

That is not a 28' boat, (maybe with platform). And, he did not do that with an 800hp engine. I think he was pushing 1200 or so if I rmember. I respect Howard's and would own one if i only used it for speed.

I agree, and like all these boats but this is about 28-30' boats.

I have had two 29 Lavey Crafts....measured at transom.

I have run with the bigger boats in multiple situations....and the result is always the same.

I'll get to where we are heading or back to the ramp and all the bigger boat owners say the same thing...." I can't believe how that thing runs....can't believe you hung with a 38 out in that stuff".....

The 29 is an awesome bottom - Lavey makes a great boat.

28 Howard (measued at the swim step) is a great, fast lake boat. I have yet in 4-5 years ever see one in the ocean - no idea how it handles the rough.

Shockwaves - seem to do well in the ocean. My videos that I have provided the SCOPE club really show how well they handle a ground swell.
