of course, there's always the Cherokee 80. IMO one of the best looking and performing offshore wave crushers of all time... 60 mph with twin 16V92 Detroits (1450hp.) or 70 mph with twin 16V2000 MTUs (2000hp.)

38' Offshore's are only small for the people not paying the bills.

Actually same goes for horsepower, drives and running in 6' waves.

I can imagine so. Back when I was in first in Spain, the Cherokee 80 was on the design table. I have never seen one in person, but it looks as the 60's lines are continued in the 80. I ran along with a Cherokee 60 going to Morroco from Spain and I was in a 40 Magnum. You could really appreciate these two designs while going through the 10 to 12's that we encountered in the Strights of Gibraltar.

E.S.

Minx20, there's no secret. Clean lines and no BS and 15 years on, the 60 looks better than 90% of new designs. Infact, the 60 was very lightly redesigned and reintroduced as 61 Speed. And changes required to bring that design up to date were very, very minor...
