Now that you got it all new and shiny, go get it dirty.
Beautiful job.

I had Owens & Sons build me a new trailer as well. I highly recommend them if you need a trailer.

Next was new Timing belts and trim seals on both motors , followed by a 3k Ceramic Coating / detail job

Just waiting for the my lift slip to be rebuilt after the hurricane last year and I might actually be able to use it. Between a college graduation and my daughters travel Lax, and my company we have been too busy.

Cleaning up the bottom has my top speed with 3/4 tank of fuel @ 57mph.


Hi, whats a “3k Ceramic Coating“ is that $3k? is it worth it?

Better in every way, flatter, faster, dryer.

Fish boxes hold ice better , wiring is much better, bilge access is much better.

Brad took every thing he liked from a 26 Regulator and 27 Contender and designed the 27. Its a magic hull much like the 26 regulator was back in the early 90s.

At 27 feet and being pushed by 300s or 350s in a lot of cases now, shouldn't we be comparing this to the 28 Regulator? Just thinking out loud...

Here is a video of us running in at 54mph on AP on a 2' day

As much as I love Regulators , they really do not make a boat that fits in this category.
