They closed the thread on the Cheetah, but I would like to make a comment. I have never been in one but I have run beside them on a couple occasions. The second time just east of ABay was a pretty rough day with boat waves and three footers plus. I was only willing to go up to about 80mph in those conditions but the Cheetah seemed to handle it fine and was pulling away. Of course I'm a 28 single and he's a 34 twin, but it did not appear to be being thrown around. I beleave the Cheetah had Whippled 502 mags, which would be a good combination in that boat.

You asked about 92mph+ ... If you want to be able go that speed safely in Poker Runs etc, I think you should be looking at at least 38 feet. If all you want to do is blast up to that speed once in a while, that's one thing. But if you want to run with the big boys ... you better be a big boy. You need some hull in the water. JMHO

Good luck ...

Wilerty,
not sure why that 344 cheetah thread was closed. Must be above my head!!!
I too watched that 344 cheetah blast past me in the Poker Run. He went by like his martini wouldnt spill. I hear ya on the more boat in the water deal. I was impressed the few times he actually spent running next to us(or passed us), how the boat looked and handled.

Still wondering what the hidden agenda is on the closed thread

I think they felt "bobby daniels" had some form of axe to grind which was the hidden adgenda.

I assume you need the cabin space ... which is why you're not looking at cats? My only experience was driving an Eliminator 28 with twin 500hp efis at about 95 in about 5 footers a couple years ago. It was an amazing ride. Personally, I just prefer a V hull. But if speed is the issue ...

I am all
"V"
I do need a cabin. I was trying to get info on a cheetah for a bud of mine. Rick at Aqua-mania took him out on one and I want to push him that way as well.
Thanks for the info
