    Great!

    Does it run well after the conversion?

    What speeds were you getting with the Yamaha?

    I've always wanted one of these offshore boats, more partial to the 24'. Adam just got a 24 Twister wide body shipped to the US. I like the idea of a single engine 100mph boat that can handle rough water.

    Here in Canada we have some pretty big inland waters and these types of boats just arn't available and when I looked into buying, shipping and rigging a twister ouch ..... You can buy a lot of boat of an existing NA brand instead. Shame really one of these would work really well.

    The 21 and 24 skaters just have too many handling quirks and the 28 is more boat than I want.

    Hopefully on day!

    nice boat let us know how it goes with the 300xs

    MOTOboat, an old Hydrolift cat is much less expensive than a newer twister or argo. Keep looking!

    Varg, is the flap at the back of the tunnel so the tunnel can pack more air for rear lift?

    Yup, thats right.. Its for building more airpressure.. Here in norway, where they where built. They are not cheaper than the argos and twisters. It depends on the condition of course.. It got a lot faster with the 300xs.. I havent maxed it out yet.. But i made about 85knots last night..
