Hey Mid. Mine is a 26', but this will plane easily also. Might have been a 30' mold blocked to 26'??/

It's getting repainted soon, to all white. If I won't sell it, I will take it to LOTO and keep it there for fun. Had it clocked at 69.3with standard 454 Mag and bravo. Nothing added but through hull exhaust. Did the kilo run in 1994 on the Mississippi,
Couldn't get it to go past 70 for the life of me. I was thinking about removing the windshield for next day run, but it was to much work.

Got a 1997 280 velocity with 454 330hp. Hope I don't get ZAPPED but I did have it advertized her before. Dropping it to 25K , but no less. Many added accesories. Very good shape.
