I prefer the 42ss over the 38, the ride is better, I feel alot more cabin room, and the difference in top end with twinn 500 efi's is 70 for the 42 and 75 for the 38, with out the hulls being infused, or vaccum bagged.

The 42 w/o the ITS and the new 525's will run about 72. They are saying that the 386 w/ITS and 525's are running 80-81 Ask sydawayz he sea trialed the 386.

There is a brand new 42 for sale with the 525's at Grand Sport Center. Rumor has it was painted by Michert T. Should be at the Chicago show.

Yes, I did sea trial the 386 offered by OP at the Annapolis and Ft. Laud Boat Shows. New loaded 386 less generator, infused hull, full cabin, 525s with ITS, 3 guys, 100 gallons of fuel, we were right at 80mph in the salt with only 2 footers. The boat has hit 81-82 with less fuel, 1 man aboard, and 3 footers. All speeds are GPS.

What do you think the 42 will do with 525 and ITS loaded no gen. Have you gone for a ride in a 2003 42' ?
Thanks Rich

BOSSMAN,
Sorry, I cannot offer up any assistance on that one. Maybe Jay himself can.

Bossman, Mark from Grand Sport has a 42 on order. He is ordering it w/o ITS and I have been told that it will do 72 w/o ITS and aprox. 75 with. If you are interested, the boat has not been rigged yet so you could get them to put the ITS in. Also, I understand you do not have to purchase/close untill the spring.

He is getting an outrageous paint job from Mitchert T. If you are interested call Mark Miller at 708-453-2116. Mark ran an add in Powerboat Magazine. That has a pic of the 02 42.

Any other questions e-mail me at [email protected]
