curious here too. My guess is itís worse (roughly double the burn) dragging baits at 6-7kts, slightly worse if running in the slop at 20-25kts, and better somewhere around 25-30kts (partly. Cause the...

Just to throw another hull out there - the old (pre-96) intrepid 28ís fit the bill. No wood. Good long term hull. Iím biased - have one and use it for everything you described
