When I was under a friends 1996 272 with a straight edge, it seemed like there were 2 different angles going on. The mini pad was on one, and the main section of the hull was on another. I'm guessing Baja did it to help the boat to get on plane with low HP. It looked like it would cause the boat to porpoise and create the need for the trim tabs. He could never run the boat flat out without the tabs. He sold the boat before we did any work to modify it.

Really let me know when you hit 131MPH in a single engine V.

Otherwise, Howard 28 Bullet is still the King.
