I meet Steve Step at the Miami Show last feb. he was very nice and enjoyable company. If you get a chance ask what X-dim they run on their new 28 VR w/ 500efi. I remember reading in Powerbaot that it ram over 80mph, but it didn't say what the X was just a 29 hydro worked over.

Thanks

Will

Ask him when the new 35 will be available that he mentioned in the most recent Powerboat Magazine.

Try to take some pictures of how their boats are made and assembled.

Ask Steve if he's addressed the issues with the stringers...They used to be discontinuous from bow to stern with not so good results.

Default You got questions I'll get answers

I plan on printing this thread out in the morning so I get the exact wording of the questions and will post the answers with photos tomorrow night.

Any specific photo angles or parts/processes I should try and get??

The more, the better!


I recently saw the plant in Sanford, it was adjacent to a marina right off of I-4....Is this the new one you're visiting or was that the old one?

I dont know if its the same. We just noticed it off of I-4 and we go past there once a week. We shall find out.

Sorry we couldn't meet at the Tampa show last Saturday. The only go boats we could see around the marina were the two Xtremes.
