I think it would be pretty cool to own a batboat just because you don't see them every day

Make me an offer later this summer: The only Swedish Kevlar/Divinycel/bagged hull in the US; fresh 540/600, fresh DPX-A, freshly touched-up paint, Sony/Canton stereo, air conditioning, and Bobby Moore rigging:

That thing must fly with that power!

Yours is a 24, correct?

Don't know yet. I expect low 90's. Nope - It's a 28 - the real deal.

Thanks for the cool stories about your race boat.

One thing to keep in mind guys....we are talking about some awesome boats that all have their own strengths.

Think about it...how silly do we sound comparing a 28 Pantera, Saber, Apache and Bat Boat. That right there is an awesome list!!

There was talk of Warlock, and I will throw in my limited .02 on them, I think they are fantastic F-1 boats. They always seem to dominate the GLSCS F-1 class. Fast fast boats....low to mid 80's in factory race setup. That is a rocket. I also THINK they have 7 stringers. Can anyone confirm or deny that for me?

Unless I am incorrect you own a 28 Saber...so why wouldn't you be up for taking my challenge. Same length boats, you'd have two engines...and if the hulls are all you say they are you shouldn't have any problem shutting me up yourself and taking 10K from me.

I've logged a lot of hours in quite a few different batboats...24's and 28's. I can tell you that in some pretty nasty rough water I've smoked boats that should have had no problem outrunning me. There's been many a Poker Runs (and I've run them all over the country) where people have approached me afterward completely dumbfounded at what they saw.

If you're not willing to take me up on my offer I think the least you should do is take me up on a demonstration of the boat. In no way am I insulting your Saber...they're great boats...but factually speaking, there's absolutely no way they can run with a batboat...no way, no how...and I think I'm standing here with 10K at stake to prove it.

Glass Dave did what he stated in a V-24 with a small block...a simple run-of-the-mill 350 horespower small block...nothing too fancy about that but man can they run in rough water.
see my post #157, did you not brag about passing 35-45 foot boats with twins and triples????

listen i really do not care how fast a batboat is or how well they handle in the rough, i do not care for the look of them. if they turn your crank fine. if they are so great how does any other manufacturer sell a single boat???
