Thumbs up Popular Mechanics boat test......

I dont know how many of you read the magazine Popular Mechanics but at work tonight I picked one up and was looking through it. They had a great test article comparing some smaller offshore boats like 22 Velocity, 25 Talon, 20 Baja and a 22' Stingray. I know these are smaller boats compared to other boat tests but it was still cool to see it make a magazine like this. When I got home I decided to go the the website www.popularmechanics.com and found some really cool articles about boats. The only problem was the test article was not online. They even have something about Reindl power boats and APBA racing changes. Oh yeah for all the Velocity guys the loves the 22 out of all of them. Here is a link to all the boat articles.

I do agree with both of you guys.

Bodyshot do you think from that pic the 22 has the bottom mold as ours does. Looks just like it

Mike,

I would guess that the bottom is the same...no reason to change a good thing! ...the deck is new, and I'm not too crazy about it...lost that nice streamlined look it once had.....
