As long as its a single doesn't matter what size it is. I know Cats are by far the fastest and am loving all the feedback, but think everyone is narrowing it down to V-bottom now. Have a story to tell?

V hull-Pro charged 1995-1994? I believe 25 eagle 598 ci 114 mph without hydraulic steering. Very stupid but it was before many were pushing them that hard would strip the steering post. Put hydraulic on it and sold it new owner was so afraid he slowed it way down. Bob leach said he had never heard of one even coming close to that speed it literally would run out of hull very scary trying to slow down. It ran for many years with that motor never being touched finally blew when the fuel pump wire came off while wide open. Have to see if I can find some pics of it and the motor.

27 daytona motor in avatar 127mph not the fastest but ran hard if you could keep a drive alive in it.

Does our old Sanger hydro count?

Sleeps 2 in the v no issues I often sleep aboard at least a night or two per San Diego trip.

As a matter of fact I can operate in zero visibility at night on the ocean with 100% confidence.

I get between 2-3.3 MPG - and have gone on 300 mile ocean trips with confidence.

This an extremely practical ride that happens to be fast with reasonable power.

Same bottom in the canopied 28 Evo is not as practical but will go 105 on the same engine.

This hull has an excellent offshore racing track record was designed for big water and is as good an all rounder as you can get.

If there is a faster 28 with the same level of HP and amenities Id like to see it.

So you installed a Imco ext box and it slowed your boat down? I have been told by so many "experts" how well a ext box will make Baja's singles go faster and it just didn't work on mine, you are the only other person I have heard that said the box slowed their boat down too, Smitty
