I have never been in a 250.. Buni will say o have never been in a cole that rode bad I would expect if it's a legit cole and built right it's a solid boat..
I still remember there hotboat ads.. 96.2 mph with a 592 and a procharger. The 250 was my favorite boat in their line up and would be the one I would have the most interest in.. I hope Kevin does the hull justice!
The only one I drove had an HP500. The 540inch carb model and it was solid! I do not recall a step and it did not have the punch of a blown motor. It also settled down quickly compared to my Howard (step boat). This was the "line" the led me to my Howard.
