With that, the 26 was not a very fast SJ boat built. THe 7.7 was the 2nd generation and reasonably quicker. BUT, considering where you sail.....that might be about as big etc as you can get onto rossinger!

If you can find a CB version of anything in the mid 20 range you will be "better/best" off.

Wow - that's a big difference. I pulled the numbers off the USPHRF ratings table - what do you think makes them rate so much slower in your area?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
