    A couple things I'd check out. Doesn't look like a 19 (even though the ad says 19.5), and the gel looks more Advantage than Rogers. I'd be interested in seeing the HIN.

    Same design bottom and deck (I have one), but not a Rogers. Old Rigger has beat me up about that over the years. The gel scheme is virtually identical to my Advantage. Sure looks like an 18 to me.......

    I don't know that you want to do 100 with this boat. The bow seating adds bow weight and uses horsepower to lift the bow and dry it out at speed. Check to see if this is full stringer or 1/4 stringer. I do 70-75 with a mildly built 460 and it does want to walk occasionally. Not in a dangerous way, but definitely gets your attention the first couple times.

    You might want to consider a TX-19 or CP19. They've got more room than a 19 semi-v and they're stable up to 100 mph and even a bit more. Mine is borderline boring at almost 90 mph. My old Kachina could be a pretty wild ride at something less than 90.

    A boat like Jon's (SleeperCP's) would be perfect for your needs. Either that or step all the way up to a 21 Daytona or splash.

    I know there are semi-v's that are capable of triple digits, but I think a gullwing or tunnel would be better suited to those kinds of speeds.

    But you've been around here for quite a while. I'm sure you've read it all before.

    Yes. Advantage bought the Rogers 18 molds.

    If this one is an Advantage there's a good chance it's got an e pump in it.

    10K seems high in today's market but if it is a Rogers, it's worth more than an Advantage.

    I'll help keep an eye out for ya. I did a 15 hour day to go get mine and it was only a state away. Makes for a long day. What's even worse is it was a bare hull and I couldn't even drive it for the next two months. The open bows do seem to be pretty rare.
