It's been said that the Mag 25 and the Cig 24 are the same hull and I believe that if you take the area above of the character line out of the equation they probably are the same . With the pic...

Well , as we all know , it's not a Mag 27 hull splash . The 25 , as has already been pointed out , only came in one model marketed as the 'Magnum 25 Sport' And it was the 25 hull that had the...
