28SS Data:

-- Top Speed 65MPH
-- Cruise [email protected] 3000 RPM
-- Four Bladed Props (Company bought by Fountain)
-- 13.6GPH @ Cruise

Great boat I shouldn't have sold it! A lot running on the
Indian River and Atlantic. I was never passed when the
going got rough, and never got wet!

Is that the Indian River Inlet near OCMD?

What pitch 4 blades were you running? Much better getting on plane with the 4 blade?

Did you have to use much tab when running with the 28ss?

Thanks for the info! Always looking for owner insights on the various models.

The Indian River is in Brevard and Indian river counties
of Florida. The four bladed props (21' pitch) were made by a company in Lakeland, FL. It was bought out by Fountain.
Basically with the 28SS you could leave the drives tucked
in and the tabs set at 2 and you could run 55 to 60 all day
in any conditions except heavy seas (3-4ft) in which case
you would have to trim the bow down. Time to get on
plane at this setting was 6-7sec.

By the way the inlets used were Sebastian (dangerous)
and Ft Pierce.

In my opinion DYNO has the best looking boat! However,
all Sonics look good.

Thanks Brian, Long story short we lost our 42 Sonic in our storage facility on Jan 14 due to a fire. We were fortunate to have found this boat, a 2002 358 with Hp 500 efi's and xr drives with just 100 hours. I would have never dreamed of down sizeing but this boat was to beautiful to pass up.

We do a considerable amount of trailering and the 42 was too big getting in and out of gas stations and moving around town. So I think for the amount of trailering we do this boat best suits our needs. :evilb:

Awesome boat. Hate what happened to your 42.

I LOVE some purple on a boat, but you got me WAY trumped.
