Congratulations to Sunsation for making the list (on a positive note). It also should be mentioned that 36 bottom was designed by Tres Martin which probably attributed to its success.

Indeed. Wayne Schaldenbrand said he had the initial designed roughed out but bringing in Tres Martin with his "three triangles" concept took it to the next level.

Well done, all.

Pretty cool about about the 36. That was definetly a gap in their lineup.

Matt......thanks for the mention on the Don Aronow Memorial Around Long Island Race.

Hope to see you on hand to cover it this year on Sept 24, 201.

I think both Joe DeFusco and Jon Tobin, will be upcoming offshore stars in the years to come......if we can get Jon back on a powerboat again.

I'm interested to see what they do with Baja. 20-26 ft. is gonna be a small lineup, what are they gonna have 3 or 4 models? Definitely interested to say the least.

What are Tres "three triangles"? I read the same phrase used by Micheal Peters when discussing the effect of steps and using them on the Cigarette.

Hummmmmmm.........


They're all wearing three triangles....









So essentially turn those chicks around tape them to the bottom of your stepped hull and those are the points that pressure is applied..... I guess with chicks like that you want to apply pressure on the triangles also!!!

No need to thank me for the free consultation!
