If the NB 28 is not a stretched version of a 25 already (like a BHM is) I think you will be fine. The larger cockpit will look nice too.

The 28 is it’s only breed, not a stretched 25. It should go could with a some more waterline length.
The 28 BMH is the result of too much booze, the 31 BHM blueprints, a pair of scissors & a roll of scotch tape.
True story.
Travis’s dad Keith was one of the guys involved.
Spencer Lincoln & Mac Pettegrow we’re the other 2 drinkers/designers.
Ive never been on one but been told a bunch of times the 25 BHM is a great design and much better than the 28

Chuck Distefano is the guy to stretch your Northern Bay.

Hopefully you will no longer need the trim tabs. I suspect that boat's performance overall will be improved, and the extra 2' will be greatly appreciated while fishing.

Chuck knows what he’s doing when it comes to these extensions.

X2. And why stop at 2 feet? More length, the better. You will pick up a knot and get a smoother ride and better efficiency.

Nope.
I don’t claim to be a naval architect but I know lots about cars and race cars.
It’s all about the pivot point.
Look at it this way.
Drag strip cars are meant to fast as hell but straight down the track.
Long & narrow.
NASCAR cars don’t go as fast because they go around in oval circles.
Imagine running a drag strip car around an oval Trac & 200 mph.
Get under a 28 bhm & see where the running gear is and compare to the 28 Northern bay.
I’ve said this many times about the 26 Webbers cove.
The boat is awesome in a following sea.
The back edge of the rudder is about even with the transom.
Add in there’s a slight V to the bottom
(Same as the 28 Northern Bay)
The boat is awesome in all seas.
28 bhm the running gear is too far forward & the bottom is very flat.
I would bet adding more length would make the bhm worse.

Extending the hull two feet would help the rudder be shaded by the hull. For boats in the water most of the year, shaded rudders pick up less slime and growth.
