Velocities are very fast in each size- up there with the fastest in every length.

Not sure they are a 24 degree V but dont wish to speak with authority on that I do not know.

Velocity is a nice boat. Keep in mind that some years they include the swim paltform in LOA and some years they don't. Not sure when this switched over. They are a pad bottom, so it's not going to be able to cut up the rough stuff like the AT, Pantera or Saber.

Why are you stuck on a V hull? My 30 takes 3-4 foot waves as well as any 28 and does it faster.

In that price range, you could go a little bigger, too...

and almost the same boat:

I know it's a little over budget, but I think this has to be one of the biggest steals on the market right now. I know the owner and he just wants something to run on the river. Boat hauls the mail...
