I keep that very card beside my monitor. I keep thinking one day my 28 AT will grow up into one of these.

Iwonder why they did not go with 2 steps?

Ask Harry Schoell- he designed the 37AVH, and is working on the 28AVH for AT as well. VERY efficient (and safe!) design.

Because one step works better than two It has to do with multiple planing surfaces, pivot points and stability. The AVH hull is very efficient and has incredibly strong rough water capability.

Take a ride and you will experience what I am talking about.

What a cool boat. I love the lines on the 37. That just looks right...

Thanks everyone. That shot was taken on the Miami coast at over 90mph. The boat does look cool and I have been on 3 poker runs with it and it really eats up the ruff stuff, the bottom that Harry Schoell designed is awesome, very smooth landing, stable and dry, and most importantly, Safe. I couldn't be happier with my boat. Harry is almost finished with the new design of the 28, and then the 42-44 will come out, I will then be a player for that boat.. Hopefully, this month Powerboat Mag will feature an article on RadioActive, should be good reading, thanks and take care, Jeff

I have 2 postcards of that shot over my desk. I also checked out the boat at the Active Thunder open house. Loved it, great boat Jeff!
AT is on a short list of (4) manufacturers that my next boat will be ordered from. Actually the list is even shorter, becaust 2 of them I can't afford!

Thanks Go4Broke, it puts a smile on my face every morning, even when the sun's not shining.
There is a short list of mine where 3 other boat co. the quality is real close, each having their own niche. The main thing is to go for a ride, drive each boat, especially in 3' or more confused mess, thats when you will be convinced. The Schoell bottom is where its at, the 1 step and delta pad is proven in my book. If I see ya at a Poker run, stop over and say hi, I'll give ya a ride . Take care Jeff
