Someone will grab them too, because as noteworthy as the topside features are, what we found in the tube design under our test boat made it truly unique. Only the top two-thirds of the tubes are round, and then, at the waterline, the tubes angle straight in and down into V's, giving planing characteristics to the tubes themselves. Sylvan calls this Revolutionary Planing Technology (RPT). The idea is to reduce the friction from the displacement of totally round tubes. In our test, we felt the boat lift at 3,000 rpm. Powered with an Evinrude 200 hp High Output (HO) motor, the test boat played with the 45 mph mark and went from 0 to 30 in a ski-boat-quick 5.7 seconds. If you don't plan to pull skiers, we think a 150 hp motor would give sufficient power and showcase the RPT even more clearly because of the lower weight.
