WELCOME TO RIVER DAVES PLACE

I can't believe Eliminator is no longer building V-Hulls or Daytonas

What is the overall difference between the speedster and the daytona ? In looking at the few I've seen online (None in person) I figured the speedster was basically just an updated version of the daytona.

As far as keeping old molds around as has been mentioned before. I'm sure someone will scoop them up and maybe make a go of them.
25 speedster has the 25 Daytona bottom, 27 speedster has the 26/27 Daytona bottom, the 28 Speedster has the 28 Daytona bottom, the 30 Speedster is the 30 Daytona bottom widened 10' overall

They should re tool the 28 eagle. My opinion it’s a great size.

It's called a DCB Extreme 28 :D....at least I think it is. Always thought it was the 28 eagle bottom with a redesigned cap, but i've heard arguments both ways that the running surface is different. Still one of my favorite V bottoms, hope to own one some day

Is it to soon to think that my 25' closed bow Eagle just appreciated a tad?

As far as the bottom is concerned, DCB moved the steps a little, but I've read(no experience) that the original Eagle is better.

Ive never ridden in a 28 eagle, but i know my friends DCB 28' extreme rode great and hauled ass. Plus it was a super tight boat (DCB) so that made it enjoyable. Zip tie mania!

I dont think there is a huge open bow V bottom market personally. We had the 247XS mold and sold 1 at cost.

The 21 Skiers dont count. They are jet boats and we are jet boat dudes.
The 242 Skier we bought that mold to build some, see what happes. 23 deck prices are going up.

Most V bottom people I meet want a deckboat.

Essex 27 Raven / 25 24 23 etc
Shockwave 25-29
Cobra 26 27
Adrenaline 28 savage
Lavey all of them
Nordic Rage
Howard bullet

lots of nice V bottoms. Just saying.

Not referring to the quality of the build by any means, DCBs are built great, just that the moving of the steps didn't improve performance and may have had some slight negative impact. Eliminator Eagles are also tight.:D

Plus, with so many people on the lake now who the hell wants to be in a 21ft boat on Havasu getting the shit beat out of them.......?
I love it in my 21 MTR! Just mash the throttle and ride the Cavitation plates and drive it like a trophy truck!

So here is the rendering we came up with. I'm sure once @Gelcoater gets his hands on it it will really pop!


Looks like someone is poking the bear again....

While I am not a fan of your choice in colors or boat bitches, its pretty damn funny @GRADS !

They will be chopped into little pieces before they would get sold to someone!
Selling them is just opening the door for someone to start up a boat manufacturer!

Never really understood the logic in that.. That's the exact same thing Jerry told me when I asked him what he did with the 300 mold. If there is a business to be had with older models than why aren't they selling at the original mfg?

Pretty much seems like a broken record with GRADS, how many times has he been banned and he is always allowed back?

I always just ban him for a week.. He usually behaves for a couple and then back in the barrel. LOL.

I didn't see that post for two days though, and wish someone would have informed me about it earlier.

He's banned for a libtard picture? Really??? Are the right becoming them... Did I miss something or what. I am not one to feel bad on what I see or read on the web . At the end of the day who gives a fuck what someone else's perfect life is about. Do I the think he' s nuts, yeah . Does it affect me in any way,shape, or form , uhh,NO!

Whenever I click on a Greg thread I know it's going to be something stupid or possibly really cool . I just don't see what folks get so worked up about anymore . Myself, I just watch the shittstorm and chuckle .

What baffles me is the fact that people still take him seriously. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he was really a conservative and just acts like a liberal to get a rise out of people. Judging by how serious he takes everything else I doubt he is serious about his political view on here lol.
