The 28 NORDIC is a stepped hull.....the early ones were non-stepped

Here you go. Top View, Cockpit View and Cabin View (unfinished). There is head room to sit, room to sleep and a port-a-poti. Dave

Thanks Dave, Good lookin boat. You can sit up in the cabin? It looks low in the pic. Ya know half the 28 or 29' boats out west here you can't sit up in. (Warlock)

As you enter the cabin, (under the fairing) you have headroom to sit. I'm 5'11 and can sit without bending. The sleeping area is low but not bad. Dave

My 26 Corsa with cabin, subs,amps, 2 batts, and 60gal. of fuel ran 70.4 gps. I broke one of my bennet tabs towards the end of last year and was wanting a pair of new ones So I removed the other tab and the boat ran 72.1 . I have always been following Raylars responses to many threads and once the funds are saved up I will be purchasing a kit from him. In the mean time I installed a ZEX dry kit and with an extra 90 Hp the boat ran 80.0gps and hit the rev limiter with a stock 30p bravo prop.

Muffman,
7.1mph is great. 90 hp! How long do you think your bottle lasts?

I too have been in the cabin, and while it may be a little snug at entry, it opens up to quite a roomy area. I'm only 5'8" and have no problem sitting straight up in the setee. The openess of the V berth is surprising as well.
