Wait, or was it the other way around???
hahaha,I saw 26 do it in a race I was in until my navigator threaten me. to pull over since I lost my bolster and kept running. cape cod 02 waves started at 5ft , a fountain sv blew a hole in its bottom on the second race, that we all agreed the water had calm down since the 1st race. well found out its not my drive height on the saber. its the boat, this past weekend thanks too . KNOT RIGHT, DONZI, SLICK STINGER, and BOXER. we tried more drive heights thanks to KONRAD for sending a full lower. we tested drive height from 4'' to aprox 5 3/4'' no chance in boat. so we know its the boat. I should of bought the red sutphen, just kidding I do like how the saber runs over wakes even with the porpoising. looks like sand bags next. wish I knew this when I had the old gas tank out. I had though there might have been to much weight in the back. and talked about cutting the floor open and move the tank where most of boats have there tanks between the front bolsters. and if its still off when I am light on fuel next fall, we'll pull the motor take the new tank out of the bilge and move the motor 6 to 8''. unless someone wants my hull know minus power, could come with drive or without. well sand bags this weekend I think.

It has more to do with the captain and his respect for his passengers. One question, I'm sure it's been discussed but, are 10ft waves followed by 20ft holes?
off cape cod YES, on the south side from the cape to block island. and sure down in NJ and south. hope to find out in my 28 when we get it figured out, may have to change the bottom too.love the 41 sabers, well going to chop wood for the wife later.ps if I plan on running hard I go by myself too.

you can lead a horse to water, BUT CAN'T MAKE HIM DRINK.. oh I was in boxer in 04 they canceled the races that day to. cape cod, there was only 4 boats in the water 3 sutphens running 65 to 75 mph. and a crazied racer from NJ going nuts in a 36 skater to show the CG it was alright to race.but after the mishaps of the 02 race it was called. and I had both knees operated on 3 months earlier. so I sat in the sutphen since my knees kept giving out. ride was fine on my back with the 5 bad disks. I could of ran around all day with Boxer that 26 degree hull cuts through the water nice. and the bow is broad on them.
