    Default Your choice of V to Modifed-V jet boat hulls?

    Hey guys... in your opinion, what would you consider the top 3 V or modified-V jet boat hulls of the 70's and 80's? I'm actually helping someone locate a boat right now and I hope to be in the market myself shortly. I'm biased to Hondo's because we had a T-Deck jet in the family when I was young and I swore that's all I would own if I ever bought one myself but I've read some things recently that have led me to possibly re-think my decision. Speed is definitely the key factor I'm looking for but quality has to be top notch also.

    A Rogers would definitely be in the hunt.

    Rogers or a Liberty would be at the top of my list.

    Placecraft, Crusader or southwind would be my choice for a Mod V

    I've been reading a lot about the different Rogers hulls and it seems almost everyone agrees they made a quality product and most of the hulls are capable of speed.

    Thanks for the responses so far but please keep sharing your opinions.

    https://youtu.be/hFjvDNpk6Dk So I have to run against tunnels. After some seat time I am ready to (saved every penny)!!! my semi vee will get more HP but will still be to light. 700lb hull. She hates confused seas. Wont stay in the water. In line chop is fine, actually fun, but wayward wakes are killers.

    I'm actually helping my cousin find a boat right now and he's looking at a couple different Rogers but he may not end up with either one. I would like to be in the market soon so I'm just trying to get as much information as possible. I will more than likely start searching for a specific hull or two based on the responses I get. I would want an 18'-19' boat.

    How do the weight ranges breakdown for hulls as far as light, medium, and heavy layups are concerned?

    Depends on what you consider fast. My Rogers design Advantage was very stable up to around 70, but the more you air it out, the greater tendency to chine walk. It was never unnerving above 70, it would just "talk" to you and let you know it was on the pump. Some people may not enjoy the feeling.

    Which Rogers hull do/did you have? I would like to be around 85 mph with right at 600-650 hp. That may not be obtainable with a modified-v but I was sure hoping it would be.

    I had an 18' Rogers Bonneville. Sold it a couple years ago, been kicking myself ever since. One of the best boats I've ever owned. It ran a solid 82mph with around 500hp. I could hold a soda in one hand and steer with the other all day long at any speed. Flat water, choppy water, didn't matter.
