Default Cigarette Bullett?

What is the difference in the Bullett with a notched transom and without a notched transom? Is there a huge difference in speed and/or ride and efficiency. Thanks for the info!!!

Almost forgot. Here's the link, let me know what you think:

Im not familiar with the bullet but the difference between my notched 40 and others that are not is a lot. The notched boat will have a slightly less freeboard (sitting still) and will ride with nose higher in the air and ride more on the stern. Notched transoms also supply the drives with more to grip. Someone correct me if i am wrong

Should make them run faster...Maybe one of the Cig gurus will

The notch in a Bullet works much, much better than without. The ones that didn't have them we changed after. They are a pain to do but they carry better. Did one slip threw? Craig

I've also wondered what a notch would do on a Cafe racer.

Craig ???
