how do you like your active tunder? how does it ride in rough water? is there as much freeboard as it looks like in the pics? how fast does it go with the 502?

I'm 5'10" and when I'm standing with my feet on the footrest my shoulders are about 6-8 inches above the gunnel. The ride is awesome for a 25ft boat. 502MAG/MPI and have seen 70mph light on fuel with just me and the wife. My AT has an agressive x- dimension which helps and I have tweaked the prop. (26p 4blade Bravo one) We had the boat built for us and our specific wants (it is a '99) and it does very well on fuel if you keep you arm out of it, 50-55mph 3700-3800RPM depending on the load. And we do stay out overnight quite often and do ok. Good Luck with your search.

IKE'S BROTHER loves his AT...... His is meticuously maintained and cleaned. it has alot of freeboard compared to most 25's I think. As for the performance I can't help you!!

Thanks! We love it. And yes in my opinion and anyone that has riden in it, it is the best 25 footer out there. Super you should come up to Lloyds Creek this weekend we'll probably be there or still pond.

I'll see if I can make it. I don't get to the Northern bay often. How far is that from the Bay Bridge?

I'm usually on the Potomac. When on the bay, I'm usually south of the bridge. I go to Kent Island (usually come up from the south end), St. Michaels, Annapolis, West River, Choptank River, Solomon's.

Did you buy the 25 AT from TSPM in Long Island that sold this Saturday?
