Let’s see pics of F26’s/Mach 26’s I’ve played around just looking at Google images etc and seems there aren’t that many actually out there. But then between DS and last weekend I’ve seen three, two similar gel but different, that I’d never seen before. So I’d love to see photos of ones guys here have owned or seen, not just google photos.

Yup last one, sounded like he came by again a while ago, you can hear the distinctive sound and it is sweet music to my ears....

My buddy TJ’s F26. Used to have a Teague 985, not sure what he was now. “Pound sand” is the name.

Have to say the F26 with I/O is one of the sleekest hulls in its size. I remember pricing my F out .....I had already bought a used Mach 26 I/O from them but got the itch for a twin outboard ....but I wanted the bro deal so I hit up Charlie (he used to be the resident Forums DCB cheerleader)......he gave Dave a call and Dave being the salesman he is...(Some love or hate Dave...I always respected him greatly)... just to give you a sense of price appreciation since then.....

This was summer of 2003 for a 2004 build .....even though I wanted twin outboards he gave me an option to do an F26 with 2003 5hr Teague 720 (refreshed); someone just bought a 28 extreme already re-powered to a Teague 1000hp....so basically brand new engine that only had 5 hrs and was at teague being gone through... Along with the engine it included imco standoff, hydro steering, huge stereo, nice trailer...all the options for a 106K...(at the time the retail on that boat was around 160K)......well I decided go with twin 300x's and even with a deal and a ton of options it came in around 142 or something.....I really wanted outboards and glad I went with them but I always second guessed myself not going with that I/O w/720 deal....that was a lot of boat for the money. Always liked the look of the I/O's better than the OB's even though I am an outboard lover...

Vic that had hot boat had one of the cleanest f26’s around.. I think he sold it recently.
Gomez bought it and sold it to his Friend. He had a nice one before that 1 also.

I have not seen or heard from Charlie in years. We had some heated Skater vs DCB debates on the old HB forum. He was definitely Dave’s biggest cheerleader. Good dude...

This is us back in 2016. Owned by Chris, Headshothills.... Sold to Jason. Now currently trying pry it out of his hands and get it back.

I think I saw that boat in Thompson Bay last night when we were headed in. Looks like Chris Hamlin’s old boat except for the stripe on the deck above the rub rail.

Nothing posted here beats the boat that Dustin an old member here had. Pure white Mach26 with twins and a beautifully done interior.
