26' Sutphen
Does anyone have some good pictures of a 26' Sutphen they could send me or e-mail me? I will make copies and send the pictures back. How does this hull handle and ride compaired to other boats in this size range, my guess is better because of the fact it has no steps, pads and its dead rise is more than any other boat i've seen (26 degrees, is this correct)
Also I'v seen this boat with twin i/o's, twin outboards, and a single i/o, how does it perform with each set up? Which one is the best. I prefer a single i/o, just looking for some information, thanks

I did a poker run on Boxer about three weeks ago. Boat runs well into the 90's and is very stable. The boat handles rough water very well and is built like a tank....Matt

poker run
Which boat did you do the poker run with P4-61 or does he still have F1-50 ?????? Fobes I agree the boat is built like a tank but a lot lighter, that is why the F2 was handicapped and had to add .weight to the boat, but was allowed to run extension boxes due to not having any steps pads etc.

bmf: I was in the P4-61, it has a blown 509" motor and I don't recall what kind of prop we ran. The thing about the boat was how well it handled the rough water, and I mean rough, and how stable it was at speed. The hull designis old school, no pads or steps just 26 degree deadrise

I have a photo of the motor with that monster blower. the other boat (f1-50 has a extension box/stelling) just wondered what ever happened to it. Spoke to doug lewis couple years ago about it. Lewis was part of team sutphen when they set the kilo record. I have to agree about the handling a buddy of mine takes my boat up to 80 and then take his hands off the wheel to show how straight it tracks while i head to the porta potti. Only met E. D./boxer once at sutphens place hope he is doing well.:D

BMF: spoke with E.D. about a week and a half ago and he's good. Can you post some pics of your rig? I just sold a 20' Sutphen with a big block and TRS, would love to eventually get a 26'....Matt
