Default Howard's 36' new V-Hull impressive !!

I got a chance to drive Howards new 36 V hull in Havasu this weekend, ran 93-95 mph in rough water with stock 525's hitting the rev limiter out of prop. Handled great in very rough water, landed flat. I wouldn't recomend it but took hands off the wheel at 90 mph tracked flat and straight, just like their 28 Bullet. this boat had side by side 525's , plenty of room for a staggered set up, i would guess it would run over 100 mph with 525's staggered. Mike from Howard hit it on right on with this hull, impressive to say the least.

Like his father Gene, Mike Willen is a perfectionist. Budge I see you have a Pfaff motor. Did he put it on his shaker machine for you?
