I know the boat well. Gary went by us one time on the way to key west so fast and loud that it scared the chit right out of the guys in my boat! We thought air station key west had pilots practicing low level strafing runs in f-14 tomcats. That will be a runner for sure. I hope you have better luck with the motors than Gary. He had occaisional breakdowns. NK

"Occasional breakdowns"

Yes ... Saw that boat @ two Pier 33 runs ... 2 DNF ... OUCH !!! Beautiful boat though !!!!!!!!

Whats up NK !!! Hows it coming ??? cant wait to see her and go for a ride !!! Smoke next year should be "a hoot"

Forget the ski trips ... I want to see the Boat pics !!!!

BTW ... my wife has been workin out but I havent so I'll have to check our current combined weight ????

Mad Hat .... You should be able to get in any of the 28's under 50K for sure and you wont be sorry !!!!!!!!!

The 28 Saber is a totally original design ... flat deck ... cored ect...

I'm not sure that there is much in common besides the length ????

Work Work Work There just simply is not enough hours in the day or days in the week. JM I am finishing my first roll of pictures for posting next week. Fit a motor today and with three of us on it full time the next 4 weeks will be critical for a 16th of oct launch. Thank god JD did all the r&d already so I don't have too! ( even if I go 10 mph's less ) NK

Default 1 hour photo?

The pictures I took in last week were 1 day that came in in 3 so now I'm getting 1 hour and I will have them tommorrow (?) It's almost like we live in Ohio around here sometimes. Very backwards if you know what I mean.

I told the saber boys today we have to be ready in 4 weeks and I think Jim is just reviving now.

Doug was heard to mumble "well"

I have begun recriuting friends to help and so far I've scored two. The amount of gas I will spend on makeup rides will far exceed just hiring more guys but these guys will care more since it's their safety too.

Since Bustedgun's gun probably won't be busted next year you'll probably need a new line bi*ch next year. I can be had cheap!
BTW I noticed this thread has over 100 posts now. Isn't that about four times as many posts as Saber has made boats?
