    I wonder what made Richie Sutphen Sr decide on a 26 degree deadrise for the RumRunner model back in the day. That may be the steepest deadrise ever on a go fast hull, must be a true wave crushing Cadillac ride DonziChris

    Cant remember the name of the MFG came close to purchasing one. jOE pANTERA'S SON USED TO RACE ONE.
    Signature I believe had like a 27* dead rise. Tom Adams was the designer and builder

    Disagree. Tom Adams splashed a Magnum hull (24 degree) and made (designed) a new deck-hence "Signature". Harry Schoelle (sp?) was the designer of the 24 and 27 Magnums-the most splashed hulls in history.

    .
    The Sutphen family designed the Rum Runner 26 from scratch. It is the only go-fast to carry 26 degrees of deadrise V making for what must be a plush ride in rough water.
    With todays power options, I always wondered how the Rum Runner would do with a monster single motor. I believe that they are laid up heavy.

    Fantastic looking boat ....................
