Default New Powerboat Magazine Teague quote

Teague states that the 39 Midnight Express is the best handling rough water boat they've tested this year. They've tested the 39 Cig Top Gun this year and the Outerlimits quattro. The Cig and Outerlimits have steps and are lighter. The Midnight Express has a straight V and is heavier.

Which made the bigger difference, weight or the steps?

YES !

And , don't forget ... there's a HUGE difference in perceived "ride" from 60 to 90 . The water is much "softer" at the slower speeds . Bet the folks at Midnight Express are passin out copies of PBM at the Miami show this year !???!?!

Do you think it is the lower speed then? How would they compare if the Midnight Express was faster?

Jassman, your boat is heavier isn't it? Do you think it rides better than the lighter boats?

Dreamer, the Outerlimits is a wider beam too isn't it?

Midnight Express is a beautiful boat, most are sold to US Customs. You can get the 39 with quad 300s on the back of it.

Was the Midnight Express Egg beater driven? if so what? The wright up on the Four Horsemen was quite an article. After reading it you would have thought they reinvented the wheel

I bet his unbiased opinion on Teague drives would be just as valueble to buyers.
