its basically the exact same bottom as the 26' American Offshore, 25' Talon, etc etc. Great in the rough water, takes BIG power to make them move. A buddy of mine had a 26' AO with about 750/800 blower motor hp and the boat ran 101 - 103 GPS. Put that same power in a 25' Daytona 110 ~ mph. put that in a HTM = 115 ~ Mph.

Well I can tell you I drove all those boat before I bought the Howard. Like others have said, GREAT in rough water. I have an 2000 with a 509ci w/871 blower that makes around 800-850hp. The best I have seen is 104mph with 1 friend and low fuel in 110 temp. I dont know where you live but I can take you out one time in it so you can see how it handles the water. Feel free to pm any ? you have

I have a 25 Daytona, but if I was to do it all over I would by a Magic or Conquest deck boat. Reason number 1...Insurance (its much cheaper for decks). Reason 2...Insurance, Reason 3, they have a lot of bells and whistles and run pretty good speeds.
