-Stout aluminum plates beef up the engine mounting system, to ensure perfect alignment for the long run.
-Seat cushions are hinged for easy access to stowage compartments.

-It’s fast out of the hole, and top-end breaks 50-mph.
-Hull vent gives partial advantages of a step, without the disadvantages.

-Grips the water in hard turns; cranking the wheel hard-over at WOT is not a problem—but it is fun!Cruisers Sport Series 278 specifications
