    I was wondering if any one had any info on these boats cant find much at all. There are two for sale a 28 2005 and a 28 2006 both pretty much the same other than electronics and gen. Was wondering if they are a solid glass hull. If any one owns one how is the ride quality extra

    I have a 2008 AJ with 315 Yanmar purchased new in 2009. Mine is solid glass hull with core-cell foam below the water line. They have been built in different variations from solid to full core hulls. Finished well, nice ride. With the 315 Yanmar it cruises easily at 18-20kts and tops out at 26-27kts.

    Was that a blue hull with roof mounted outriggers? What were they asking for it? Thanks
