I have a real nice 2001 HTM SS-24 that runs OVER 120 GPS turn key for under 50k. It actually went 122.4 GPS hitting the limiter. tripple axle trailer with drive guard, etc etc

I just re read your first post and seen you are " NOT " interested in an HTM or Warlock. Sorry about that. Good luck with your search.

The picture of the Talon/Hustler is great, the American Offshore was splashed off the original Talon. AO is way cheaper with the same great ride. I am on the Atlantic Ocean off of Atlantic City every weekend with 3/4 footers all the time, and I am right there with the bigger V's. 2006, 525EFI, Sportie, all the right stuff under 60 hours all for $55,000.00

I've heard a lot of good stuff about the overall handling of the 26 American Offshore. That particular hull handles very well for it's size. Tres Martin had one for sale back in the spring (maybe still does?) He said it was set up real sweet.

I have Liberator cats 18-30ft. All the ones I sell are outboards though.

I owned a 25 ft. Daytona for 8 years, had a ProCharged 454, and ran 95, mph. In my opinion, (and my wife's) it rode better then my new 292, Fastech. I miss my cat, and will be back in one as soon as I possibly can. I love Eliminators , but that AMT, with the small blocks sounds interesting.
