I agree that Howard, Kryptonite, Velocity and the others mentioned, are very fast if not the fastest 28-30 singles out there. But unless they are using something other than fiber glass, and they weight less than 5000lbs, the strength of the hull will be less. But to each their own, just don't cry if you stuff and delaminate or worse.

"until I busted a hole in the keel pad/transome from too much air time and it sank!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

What the hell???? Warlocks ride rough???? Im not saying that warlock is the best but i think they have proven that they can run with anything in the rough stuff, mine kicks a*s went the water gets nasty.

If i remember the Howard Bullet 28 is the fastest boat test by the major mags with a merc 500 in that size range.

Here are numbers for my B-28 from the 2001 NJPPC Radar Shootout:
531.2 crankshaft horsepower (dyno sheet available) - 82.9 mph radar/82.8 GPS (radar certificate available). The air conditioning was running, too - it was HOT.

I've seen 86 on radar with the same package, but that was on a tidal river, and I did not make a note of which way the current was running. These boats are not everyone's cup of tea, but they go pretty good, especially for a 10-year-old design. My hull was built in October 1994.
Retired! Boating full-time now.
