I have a question:

The Mr. Goodwench Boat was a non-stepped 28? Right? Are they still building that hull?

Wasn't there a 28 Challenger that raced in the Great Lakes division that wasn't stepped? It would be the same kind of hull as the Mr. G boat? right?

The "Mr. Goodwrench" boat and "Crazy Rythm" (sp?) are the same boat, different owners. And yes it is a non stepped version, although I'm not sure if Challenger is still making that hull. The non stepped version is not a Harry Schoell "DDS" bottom.

Thanks, Ben

It seemed to be a Quick Hull. Anyone else know about it?

I love it for it has no windshield to climb over,
enough room for 2 to overnight in, running water,
2 drop down ss bolsters 3 bolster style in back,
sliding cabin door, the radar arch supports a full canvas
fast back style top with windows, lots of storage too
dont need trim tabs, handles very good till the water gets
ruff then keeping her tracking straight is tuff, ride is nice
and smooth.

now the only thing I wish is I bought it with a BB
the 350 mag has begun to bore me a 502 is needed
52 is just too slow! the stepped hull doesnt work well to about
30mph. I have a friend with a 502 in one it does 75
just dont crank the wheel too far too fast or like most stepped
hulls under 28' they will spin out .

Default 28

The 28 that is non stepped is the little brother to the 30 that
challenger uses for the open bow. Both of these boats were known as Superv 28 and 30. Somehow the 30 made it to Mo but the 28 never did, I do not know why. once in a while I see the 28 hull as a Level 10 boat. later Dwight

When I lived in Ottawa I had a 1990 Larsen Senza, single stepped hull, 454 Mag. 365hp. The boat ran 67MPH on radar in 1 foot chop. WWW is right, between 60 and 67MPH the boat was a little squirley and you sure didn't want to make any sudden turns.

The boat has lots of room in the cockpit great for running 7 of your closest friends around. We could fit a cooler (50 Quart) lengthways between the front bolsters and back bench.

The only thing I didn't like about mine was that there was no swim platform, just two steps similar to a 18 ft runabout. Mine was a fast/hard back, no sun pad, fiberglass engine hatches with built in head rests.

But overall the boat felt like a larger boat, lots of cockpit and cabin room and many amenities as www mentioned running water, head, seating for two, and a comfortable sleeping for two.
