There is a cheap30' malstrom V hull on lakeland craigslist. also a manta 30' in chicago on c/l also. Repower with newer o/b's and be reliable.

Excalibur 27 if you are looking for an older boat.

I believe this Checkmate 30 Convincor may still be for sale. I'm sure the price has come down. Original ad was in 2007 when the boat was still new. He has had it to 90 mph with a pair of 300X Mercs.

Clamp ons are not any easier or cheaper than i/o's, once all the bugs are worked out of an i/o, it is better than outboards, working the bugs out of an outboard sucks alot more, buy new with warranty, or keep the i/o sorry....

I have a bit more experience with outboards than i/o's and we didn't have that many issues with ros 2.5's on a 28 skater, but I am not as interested in 2.5's for this boat.

Don't forget about the Concept 30. It was designed from the start for twin 300X outboards and every time I've been in one, I was impressed.

30 velocity 2x300s should run 80mph plus. the fish boat ran 77 with a full top on it.

What are your spend, engine, and speed preferences? I might be able to build a new 28 Active Thunder for you.
