Default Tuff 28' - Educate Me

So what is the low down on this o/b model? I read the threads and info on the 21' Tuff with the Ilmor 570, and the 28' with the Ilmor 710, but what about this 28 with the twin o/b 400's? Speed, prop size, rpm at WOT, gear ratio, 15" mids (looks like 20" midesections to me), overall weight, and list price? I know the first response to this thread should-would be is to call Mark Weigl (owner of Tuff), but I am a dreamer - tire kicker, and I won't waste a man's time with a call like that, out of respect. So let the members of OSO educate me.

I like all of the Tuff line up including the 16' with the 90hp o/b/. Cool boats.

If you are interested, call Mark...probably one of the straightest shooters when it comes to defining if his boats suit a clients expectation... they definitely perform!

What's the deadrise on those boats? The entry looks more suited to lake use than chop, but I could be wrong.

I think you'll learn a lot more about those boats on S&F than you will here.

As I wrote, just a tire kicker, not a real prospect at this time, I won't waste his time, until I would be a in a position to really consider it a realistic possibility to own one. His stuff just works, based on what I have read online. This 28' has my interest.

Thanks guys, Scream and Fly had the answer, here it is for speed estimate,

"The tuff with the 400's runs currently a hair over 100, it needs more setup time. It is not done there but the diffusers need to come of the props to settle the back end down. It is expected once dialled in that it will run 110-115. The owner is coming from stern drives and is getting used to it.
I have seen it out a lot. It is a pretty boat.
The 400's are less than impressive, they don't have the pull you would expect and sound like a seadoo.

I believe it only has a 22degree bottom,so it should be quick but like you said more suitable for lake running,looks like a stretched out version of there 21.
