They should be here. PM received & answered.

You know, that's exactly the kind of thing that Powerboat should be doing. A 6 part build up of a big hp N/A 502. It would keep people coming back for the next issue. I can't believe all the prop tests in these olds Hot Boats too. And not just a "Teague on Tech" but separate tech Q&A's for jets, outboards & IOs and sometimes for V-drive. All written by different experts. I'd like to send a bunch to Powerboat and say "read and learn".......
(Thirdchildhood) I'm really not sure what year it was ? Pantera Jo may know ? I know powerboat had a couple mags with the 28 Saber & as a matter of fact it was the first under 30'er to ever win "powerboat of the year" I hope I'm not getting the 2 mags confused, but I'm confident if Jo said one of them was in the same issue as one of their 28 twins then its somewhere in the 94-95 range..

I also wanna say that I Really do appreciate you taking the time to look through this stuff !! Whether I ever directly benefit from it or not.. So many of us around here looked through these old mags 15-20 yrs ago & lusted like a 12 yr. old boy staying up till 2am to catch a flick on showtime.. haha !!

dbkski, I have the entire 4 part 502 EFI hop up series from 1997 and will post it as soon as I can.

Powerplay J, I found the Powerplay issue from 1993. It has a Powerplay 33' Sport Deck on the cover and a review inside. It's in excellent condition. I did not find one from 1996 but my collection is not complete. Find out which issue and I'll look again. $6 shipped. Send PM.

LittleNCS rodshop, I found the test of a Saber 28 Cyclone in the March '96 issue. It's also in excellent condition. $6 shipped. send PM.

JP, I could not find the "Blown Fear" DCB in any 2000 or 2001 issues but I'm missing a few. Get me the exact issue and I'll look again.
