I own a '99 Samson 28 with a 225 Deere. I haven't had it for that long, but it has been in the family since new. I think the 28 and 30 might come from the same mold. It's a big 28, 11'+ beam and no engine box with a 6" step into the wheelhouse, but it's a pretty light boat, less than 9k lbs on the scale with 100 gallons of fuel onboard.

Happy to try and answer any questions you have. Also, don't be shy about shooting Samson an email with questions about specific things.... they are great guys and very responsive. I have traded emails with Daryl David a few times in the last year and he was always happy to help.
What do you cruise at with that motor?

I cruise 13-14 knots at 2100, WOT is around 18 knots. Fuel burn at cruise is prob around 5 gals/hr.
Does she handle ok at 18 knots? If i were to get the boat i would look to repower in the future to try to get closer to that 18kt cruise the hull just doesnt look like it wants to move that fast haha
