Yeah, but if you had a DCB your graphics would go 140 mph, and just think of how much fun you'd have trying to catch them

I think after you buy the external steering they are about the same.

lotoparty, The 28 skater is a great setup and it is fast. Don't let anyone talk you out of a 32 with a triple setup with 280s. Twin 300PM are nice but pricey and hard to come by finding used parts. I have a connection in New York that can get Me 245 BP Merc Long Block for $1200 each if I blow a engine and 280s for $3500. I think you would like a older 32. You won't lose money on the setup. Also price rebuilt long blocks for a 300 Pro and a 280 and you will make your mind up real quick. Speed with a 32 with tripple 280s will be about 102 MPH. A 28 will be a little faster with twin 280's.

Loto Party there is a 32 Skater on the Skater Website. It looks clean. Try to buy a outboard Skater Minus Powerheads. Then have some built for yourself. Many people get screwed buying engines on boats for sale. This boat could probably be bought fo the same price you bought your Brave.

how fast with only a pair of 280's? i dont want to run 102 mph. ok , actually i do , but im not willing to pay 4k/yr for insurance to do it.
how much yaa wanna bet , if i had a skater that topped out at 50 mph ide still get quotes for at least 3k/yr to insure it.
