56' DMR, 31' BHM
What got my attention was the guy who said it was a great boat for Florida but did not cut it off VA in the fall, winter or spring. Of course the water in Florida is also warmer when it wets your ass. We used to laugh and say we were in the life support bubble while we ran through some rough water in your old 40 footer down here off Hatteras.

Hey What is the story on the True Marine's anyway? I like the looks of the 28 with the pilot house and walk around. TE2810 with the inboard diesel. How would it stack up to a Fortier 26, Dyer 29, or BHM 28? I realize they are all different boats, but some POVs would be great.

Thanks Ronnie, I've seen your Raider in the harbor. She's sweet and it looks like a 30'+ boat. I have my boat at Marina Bay, but it's not a downeaster.

I'll tell you this.
I own a 28 BHM and have been on an older (Hope 24) 28 Master marine plenty of times.
The Master marine is very good in a head sea, but very wet !
Most anyone knows the BHM is a beast in a head sea, but my BHM doesn't lay on its side going into a turn.
1st time experiencing a turn on the Master marine I thought we were going over.
:rolleyes:
oh stop it, I'd put that MM up against any boat in a slalom challenge, that boat can cut. Yes its wet, you show me a sub 30 cc that isnt ? The boat is good in mostly any sea's, hows yours in a strong following ? I ran one for 8 years, don't like to get wet put up an enclosure. The things i didn't like about the boat, it was a little narrow in the stern, floor layout sucked with the outboard well. Other then that good bang for the buck. A buddy of mine down in margate, cut the outboard well off, put twin ox66 250's on it. It cruised easy 30 knots 52 on the pins, i don't care if your donald trump, your bhm isn't doing that

TWM is a good boat, they are built tough, the newer ones are not the same as the original master marines. A little less deadrise, more beam. Its a great seaboat. We fished a 24 out in the hudson plenty of times with a 240 yanmar. That was a little battle tank. The 28 is bigger. The biggest problem with the news ones is the merc junk drive. Quite a few have switched over to konrads and have not looked back. 24knots @ 8gph, 30knots in the corner. The pilot house/ console is abit narrow for the bigger guys. They now make a 28 straight inboard, that is a great boat!!! I have seen one down in NC with a 440 yanmar and konrad 520, that boat could move!!!

I think these boats were built buy the Moonies back in the day. Looks like a design for the pacific ocean (japan) but I think they were made in NC. Always liked the bow on these boats but could never find one that did was priced right with a half decent motor.

The originals were made in NY, under master marine. TWM bought it out, built them in North Jersey, recently moved the plant NC

I believe I will ask for an exemption on posting this. These have spent so much time constantly tuna fishing alongside DE's and are a "cult" type boat.

Why do I just want to buy it to play with it... Is it even a good deal if I just wanted the hull...

I need a boat so I dont go buying other crap...

28' Center Console now with 300 HPDI 15K TAKES IT! - The Hull Truth - Boating and Fishing Forum



I can only comment on the 300 HPDI, I've run mine for 4 years now. Make sure you take the motor ID # to a Yami dealer to run the warranty history to ensure all the updates have been done. If the updates are done, the only other downfall is the maintnance frequency. I'm changing my plugs and filters, $196 worth, every 50 hours. These engine need clean fuel and plugs or else she'll let you know. Other than that, great motor!!
