The 35 is a little scary at 90+. I was just on a 38 TS Gun that felt great at 102-103 w/ nat asp'd 750 ZUL's.

Remember when 60 was fast in a v-bottom??

NO......

I personally have experienced 100 in a 39 Ol, and in 6 -8's (see robb report) it handeled like my old 51, solid!
Sorry AnimalHouse .... I was quite impressed with my experience on the new 39 OL last summer (Thanks again AlMick.) in less than ideal conditions on Lake Erie no question !!! But lets not get carried away ... 12 feet is 12 feet !!! Not to mention the huge difference in weight from a 39 to a 51 OL .

I guess I'll have to get a ride on one of those new 39 OL's. I've been on the 42' and 37 but not the epoxy verisions, they ride really nice!

Was that the Hustler at the Miami show last year? if so, it wa a really nice package! I loved the sit-down setup, but the seats didn't look very comfortable at all. Gladiator seats look (and feel) very comfortable.

Yes it was, I didn't like the Recarro seats either, but with a standard interior, that boat would be great. It was the most interesting boat to me at the show.

They had a 388 with viper engines and surface drives too. I have pictures but are to big for this site.

The Vipers in that 388 ran really well. I think they hit 96 with the boat.

Really kool sounding engines and Ilmore has a more powerful version that should compete well with the new 600 merc, not to mention a lot easier on the finacial side compared to merc also.
