He is the one who has done bottom work on the boat to make it turn. For those of you that think the owner needs to “learn to drive a lavey” I can tell you I have been maintaining and driving the original orange race boat for over 5 years now. We had the bottom of that boat reworked also. It is a far different world driving them in a straight line on the river and running them in racing conditions and navigating tight turns. Anyway. The blue boat is still brand new with no holes in it. It has had the bottom modified. The person I sold it to was going to rig it but had the chance to buy a outerlimits he had been trying to purchase just a month after buying the Lavey Craft. This is the only carbon laid lavey and will definitely be super fast. It is no question in the hands of one of the most qualified men on the planet to make it a record setter.

Cool to hear Brian has it, do they think it will make the circuit this year?

I’ve run a 28 EVO in offshore racing conditions and also turned the boat at over 80mph with zero handling issues.

The blue 28 EVO is not the only carbon laid boat Lavey has built. Here’s a couple old crappy pictures from back in 2010 of a 2750 NuEra open bow laid in carbon/Kevlar. The orange 28 EVO open cockpit with a GT1200 in it that’s over in Germany also had carbon fiber in its laminate. There’s also been a 27 Sabre that had carbon in its laminate.
