    It is the old Rayson Craft mold. Looked clean. Very shallow boat not much room in it.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Shallow compared to a 27' ultra or shallow compared to a 25' eliminator daytona?

    Shallower than both from what I can tell. I know for sure shallower than the Ultra. Really all you have is driver/passenger seats and a bench. You would have to lay pretty flat to get under the deck(not knocking the boat). Talked with Joel over there (great guy) and he said they are selling them with a 496 mag for $69,900.

    only thing different between that hull and my Raysoncraft are the mocked air ducts into the bow.
    Looks great, definatley cleaned the mold up a bit as it looks very straight.

    And yes you have to crawl under the bow area.

    Best handling cat hull of their size.

    I know the deck has been raised about 4 inches on the sides. Looks a little taller than all the old raysons i've seen. I'd compare it to the older std. deck 25 daytona. Pretty similar in free board.

    now I can see the slight flat area above the rub rail. Probably just make it a bit too high to rest your arms over the sides.

    thats a good looking boat for 69K brandnew! and it has a great bottom. More builders might want to think about this marketing plan. Cut out some of the FLUFF and get prices back to where more can afford them. Even more so, Magic is very smart IMO to offer the discounted APR's. By buying down the interest rate, it makes a huge difference in the customers payment.

    $100,000.00 on a 20yr term @ 7% is $ 775.00
    $100,000.00 same terms @ [email protected] $ 580.00

    thats alot to many people.If anything LOOKS a lot better

    I spent a good deal of time checking out this boat. I have to say it was very nice. The canopy boats are starting to look out of date to me and this boat had a refreshing look...nice clean deck lines. Certainly not as deep as an Ultra 27 but no single engine cats are. If I was in the market for a single engine cat I would definately consider this one, especially if you do not care about underbow seating.

    Hey Racer,

    Your bad looks bad a$$ in your avatar. Can you post some pics of it. I have never seen the raysoncraft 26 cat before. I am looking very seriouly at getting a 26' genesis. the price is in my range and the bottom is proven. How does it handle the mid afternoon chop?
