    1989 STV 2006 Merc 280

    I ran that boat with a few good motors, but the best was a Diamond Marine ported 260, with a 14.5X32 merc cleaver at 131 mph. Any questions I can answer, let me know

    1989 STV 2006 Merc 280

    That is my old boat...I bought it new from Diamond Marine in 1989, sold it to Warren in Fl., and he sold it to Bernard. That boat handled very well, was very good in rough water. Any questions I can help with let me know. Dennis

    lower unit questions

    If you have the choice, you DO NOT want the Allison cut skeg. The stock SM with full skeg is the best set up, and the fastest too. I have been 130+ with a stock SM. Been 130 with a CLE, but did not like it as much as the SM. If you want top end, you want the 1:87's.

    Been a long time since I have been on this site also, havn't used my boat much in the last 2yrs, so went out this past Sunday, good weather, about mid 70's, but windy, ran 130mph, was pleased beacuse this was with my pump gas motor.

    I agree with Anthony.....a high speed "hop" is usually not enough trim...which engine, and what prop are you running..

    Those were first the Tabasco molds, then the Lightning molds, and poor splashes at best. As far as "cleaning up the STV deck indentation and ribs at the back", what a bunch of crap! More recycled junk

    Joe, Their are alot of STV's in Fl., don't know much about the Daytona area though. Most of the get togethers are posted on Screamandfly.com. There is something going on every couple of months, anywhere from Ocala to the Keys. Welcome, Dennis
