I agree. My 96 22' Scarab ran mid 60's with a 454(330HP). You would need a lot of HP in that 28 to run low 70's(GPS). I would guess 500+ ponies.

Default power

its been built by a respected builder in mass. spins the 25 pitch 5400-5500 so in prop calculation its right on the money but i agree i thought it would take a lot to run low 70's how rough do they ride??? i boat mostly in the great south bay wich can get a little nasty i think is like 22degree vee i just figured the length would help

think twice if you want to race it some day. 28 foot would require you to run class 5. you'll need to be cabable of 80 plus to run in a 75 mile per hour class. I think you should reconsider the 24 Carrera or that 26 footer you were lookin at.

just my opinion..been there done that.

If your running in more than 2 to 3 footers you should have a kidney doner on stand by.

It really did ride that ruff. Its got sit down pedistal seats and a shallow V. My buddies wife wouldnt ride in it anymore so he sold it and bought a 29 Baja. Its a heavy boat so its gonna take a ton of power to get any respectable speeds out of it. His also had cracks along the cockpit bulkhead, so you may want to check that. It was a very cool looking boat after he painted it.

I think they are a 21 degree hull, not 24 degree like the 24 or 25ol your 226 is a 21 too. your better off with the other boats posted or find a sutphen 26 = has a 26degree hull. which engine builder in mass??
