i own one

there not bad the floor can rot out cos there is no protection on the underside.

the corners are a bit to sharp so they tend to have some cracking in the gel coat, well mine does but it is a race boat.

i think there good boats mine has lasted 16 years, they are a hard ride so i think it will brake the driver before the boat.

if you got any questions let me know or if you want some pictures or to look at mine to compare thats not a problem

yer i had a good race till the bow tank split but it is 16 yrs old

i'm running a tempest 23 at the moment with the 2:1 ratio gearbox, not realy looked at the offset cos i can't realy change it but its not central, i might measure it tomorrow as i've spend all day removing the engine and it would be easy to do

i've just bought a lifter and borrowed a load of props to see how i go

people recon a laser is the best so i've got a 23 and a 25 to try before the season starts

What sort of set up are you running?

xr2, only an inch offset and a 23 cleaver! its not jacked either! tryed that it went well but it also went where it wanted to! ha ha! the acceloration is unreal once the prop stops slipping but its such a handfull once it is going! the bow always wants to dig in for some reason but someone said to me that the cleavers lift the back anyway? thats why i wondered wot u were running! wots yours max out at sea then?

i've seen a constent 63 mph out of it on a poker run, but its always hard to read when racing.

the marshan is known for being a stuffy boat so that probably also exspains teh reason behind the nose down.

i'm going to use the lifter for testing and setting up purposes and leave it alone once its set up
