I have had my MCOB up to 103 gps with too small of a prop. There was 3 people on board and completely full tanks. Now since I have gotten a bigger prop it will most likely be in the 115mph range!

Oh and at 100+ it felt very stable! The only problem that I have so far is since there is no windsheild, u feel every bit of wind and regular sunglasses just dont do the job

Btw, blown 540 @ 4psi

What kind of HP are you running? The more I think about the MCOB design the more I like and useful I think it would be for me. 103 might be more than I desire...85-90 more my style IF it is stable at speeds. Compared to V-hull what are they getting for ins. on these?

Im probably in the 800hp range. Very stable around the 80-90mph range. Obviously MCOB is going to be a little slower than the closed bow, but it is much more condusive to the type of boating we do.

Insurance can be a very finicky thing lol. It was about twice as much for me compared to my 27' V-bottom.

So with 650 HP could one expect to see 90mph with labbed prop? How do these hulls react or like IMCO shortened lowers or extension boxes?

Is there any thing to cover or block wind from traveling thru the mid cabin?

I would imagine so, but I am not sure. They did offer the cabin doors (depending on what layout u got) that would block the wind, but I have the layout that is open on the port side in front of the co-pilot chair.

From what I have heard, the boat does not react as well as u might think with the shortened lower (but then again, I have no first hand experience). I have a XR, but am thinking of either beefing up the enitre XR internals or going to a standard length Imco.

U might direct some the questions to the General Forum, since this forum is pretty dead and really has no traffic from what I can see!

I'd like to get a ride on one of those. Mine stays on Higgins with an occasional trip to Lk St Clair or north.
