I don't get it? The Midnight Express was running 4 merc verados, why would he be biased towards that over a Cig or Outerlimits?

I think, If this is the type of boat the individual is looking for the Midnight Express is ahead of the pack. But no way can one compare it to any other type of boat.

I don't see why it is not apples to apples? Both are V-bottoms, just different propulsion, and no it won't pass your TG at 100, but it might pass your TG at 68 in the rough.

Customs used to use Cig Flat Decks to run down drug runners, so why wouldn't you see them use TGs if they thought they were better?

Interesting enough, my buddy, designed the hull for that 39' Midnight Express! He has ridden in the boat, said it does handle the rough water very well!

The coast guard, customs, police, etc, need boats that can be boarded and and maneuvered by anyone quickly and easily. Our style performance boats are far from friendly in those areas.

You can also factor in that outboards are far less of a mechanical issue than an I/O. The patrol boats are meant to be durable, practical, reliable, roomy, and agile.

Still an apples to oranges comparison considering the needs of the patrol.
