Default Predator boats

Does anyone know anything about them? A friend of mine just took one in on trade, it's a 1990 with 454 Mags, and Alpha's I believe. What is it worth, were they any good? Quick?

Thanks, James

Do a search on preditor, there's about a hundred threads.

Really, should I spell it Predator or Preditor?

Anyway, I searched for both spellings and didn't find sh!t about the boats.

If you type in (Predator) in the search box in the General Discussion Forum it will come up with 101 treads, you'll have to weed through them to find one about a history, but I know it was well discussed before because I own a Aero Offshore and it was bought by Predator in 1989 I believe

if its a 28' they do ride good.there was a couple of A class race boats in the late 80's that always run strong. one was factory backed and one was ken's oil. alpha's and 454's are going to be a problem

I still couldn't find anything searching the forum.

baron ... thanks for the info. I know the alpha/454 combo is a problem, I don't want the boat for myself. He just asked me how much it's worth and if they are any good. I had never seen one so really didn't know.
