Default 26 Corsa

I've got my eye on a 26 Corsa. Anyone have any info on these boats? I know some of you raced these, how are they in the rough? What kind of power to get 80 w/bravo drive. Whats the cockpit and cuddy like? Any one have any pics? Any help would be appreciated.

I have run with a guy from Long Island, NY that has one. He used to race it. It is one FAST little boat and he ran it in some BIG water. I never was in it personally though.

The 26 Corsa owned by Steve Miklos was a World Kilo record holder in Factory 1 back in the late 90's at over 81 MPH, (I think the number is correct, but I'll check for sure.)
This is also the boat that Ernie Pollock and I raced last season under the Revolution Marine Inc. banner. Our 26' Corsa with a sealed GM Vortec HP3 ran really well in P-4, usually finishing 2nd or 3rd in front of much larger boats. Unfortunately a 38 Sonic in Factory 2 trim was a hard boat for us to keep up with in the rough.
In fact, you may want to contact Miklos. Last I heard, this boat may be for sale. If he doesn't sell it, it may be back on the pro circuit again, soon.
