the 21 excel is 23 with the SP. It also has a fiberglass floor instead of wood with carpet glued over it. Much better built boat IMHO.

If you're looking for a boat with a cuddy and porta potty, the velocity is hard to beat.

Yeah I really, really like the Velocity. Anyone around Raleigh, NC have one? Would love to see one in person sometime.

Call me a little jaded, but for stout construction, light weight, great rigging, rough water ability and a few other things, I really, really like my Progression 22.

the 22 scarab are great running boats as are the Baja Hammers, both would be on my short list.

Beware of the construction on the Bajas. Here on Lake Ontario where I do most of my boating, many a Baja has broken up with medium to hard running.

Def awesome boats, but most likely well above my budget

Quite possibly true. They hold their value extremely well. Mine's on it's 18th summer and people still ask me if I just picked it up. Maybe if you found an older one? Trust me, having worked on boats for over 20 years, you get what you pay for.

I totally agree, my jet is in its 34th season. My father bought it brand new in 1977 (3 years before I was even born!) and over the years its always been garaged and well cared for, people don't believe me when I tell them how old it is Its still on the original motor, paint and interior.
