    I know You just happened to forget the Bertram Baron 28 this time Greg 'cause way back you mentioned it and it's 26 degree transom. Now please don't forget my 28 degree Flying Flipper 30 even though it only has done 85 mph https://youtu.be/sgAeJtkeLjk?t=1m35s

    lars, good catch. This is what happens when you pass 40 and still punish yourself in a small Donzi 16, it affects my memory! So both the Sutphen Rum Runner and the Bertram Baron 28 have the 26 degree V.

    Your FF 30 footer making 85mph with 28 degree of deadrise? Good god mate, that is pretty amazing and perhaps the only 28 degree hi-po V in the world?

    beauty

    What a beauty! Love the idea of a big single. nice looking execution, too.
    Also, I think Cobalt has a 25 or 26 degree vee on their 30 foot condurre.
    Funny thing. I towed my little Sutphen to Lake Tahoe in about 2006, and learned that COBALT stood for Can't Operate Boat At Lake Tahoe.

    Nice photo Lars! That's Jerry Miller at the helm. He was a good family friend.

    Will do Chris. Question, is the Rum Runner a sit down design from the factory? I can't tell if the bolsters drop out.
