LEOPAJM - that Saber still has the mag engines, the broker doesn't have his listing correct. The boat is in Ft. Meyers(sp) and is still owned by the original owner.

Question Course proposal

Whaddayathink?:

START: Green/Red Buoy “ER": 39.26.198N / 76.01.057W

Leg #1: 9.43 miles @ 247M/235T

Waypoint #2: Green Buoy “1A”: 39.21.539N / 76.09.773W (You must pass North of this buoy.)

Leg #2: 4.27 miles @ 236M / 225T

FINISH:Green Bouy “41": 39.18.904N / 76.13.149W

Total distance: 13.69 miles

NOW:
Since some insurance policies won't cover you in the case of a race, we need to make this a predicted time rally, with the award going to the boat that gets to the finish line closest to the appointed time.

I reckon that time should be 8 minutes and 12.84 seconds. You do the math.

'99 with twin 350 MagMPI/Bravos - about 70 gps fully loaded with fuel and gear and the wife and I. Cruises very efficiently at 50-55mph.

pic of the galley- there is an enclosed head across (kinda small but we stow gear there anyway), side facing lounges and v-berth forward. Most freeboard and cabin of all the 28's we looked at.
Pat builds a helluva boat!

One more of the panel- AT does as good a rigging job as anyone in the industry- very clean wiring and routing.
Instrumentation by Livorsi .

I wouldn't win any races against some of the boats listed with their twin big-block power (unless I Whipple or ProCharge), but it certainly can run in the same big water.
If it weren't so damn far to Chesapeake Bay.......
Come and play on Lake Michigan sometime!!
