Psssst - don't tell anyone, but the word on the street is that Reggie is the guy that actually designed the Apache 41 hull. Remember, if anyone asks, you didn't hear that from me...

I don`t know about ''stepped'' hulls but they did put a finnish on their hulls that would generate bubbles to reduce the hydrostatic drag.

Default MAYFLOWER AND STEPS !

I agree with BAJABOB about the MAYFLOWER having steps and I would also like to point out the MAYFLOWER was much faster than a BAJA 38 SPECIAL with a much lower fuel cost and far less maintainence.
