The AO is a splash of the Talon. Now that Hustler is building the Talon 25, I'd go with them before AO.
Have you ever bought a boat from Hustler? or AO?

Have you given any thought to outboards? I know there are a lot of people here that cant stand them but they have many good points. It will take a blower motor single cat to keep up with a twin 2.5 or 300x outboard boat. With that said the outboards will be able to run wide open all day long with a lot less worries than the blower motor. Sure you dont get the sound from the outboards that you come to enjoy with the blower motors, but the scream of outboards is a pretty good tune too. You normally dont break drives (lower units) with outboards either. I like Eliminator's new 25 with the canopies and twin outboards, that boat should run well, probably 105-110. The 28 at Miami with 300's ran 101 with a different set of props than they had on at the show. At the show I was told it ran 97 as it was then.

THANKYOU ALL FOR YOUR GREAT ADVICE.
I BOUGHT A NEW ELIMINATOR DAYTONA 26 WITH A 496 MAG HO WITH QUARTER CANOPIES. I THINK IT WAS A GOOD CHOICE AND THE COMPANY WAS GREAT TO DEAL WITH.

I would go with 25 daytona - canapied. You will get the best performance, similar room in the cockpit as the rest and a small stabbin cabin. If you want to spend the extra cash take a look at DCB 26 - their rigging is unparralled.
