However it will be hard to find other pleasure boats the same size that are low in weight like a Velocity. What other 28 foot boat with full pleasure boat cockpit and cabin weights in at 3500 lbs!!!!
Velocity hulls are as thin as a potato chip. Be careful!

Again, weight for weight and engine for engine I do not see Velocity winning in F1 or F2.

The 26' Corsa's which are straight V no pad boats won all the time against the Velocity 26' 280 in APBA F1 1997-1999. The 26 Corsa Team Oatey held the F1 kilo and beat the 26 (280) Velocity Not the Intent for the kilo record that year.
Don't take your potato chip Velocity out in the rough or smooth water against a Corsa!

Geeze Mike are you ever going to get off the Velocity bashing kick? It's going on 5 years now. I'll have to dig up the picture of the over weight yet weak F1 fountain that blew apart in Mississauga two years ago.

Weight has little to do with strength, Skater makes the strongest yet lightest boats out there.

Fever Mike: 3,500 pounds???? Where did you get that from. My 280 weighs 4,650 pounds, about the same as most 26' hulls.

The Velocity VR-1 is a screaming fast boat for what it is, and yes it is faster than the Velocity 28. However Mike is right they are allot lighter than all other boats in their size and power. To get the weight down I do think they sacrifice hull strength?? Just what I have seen and heard.

yes the 30 stuphen is still legal. good point on powerplay but i believe like apache is a rough water boat. stuphen is the only boat i can think of that goes both ways.
