While the term deep-V is a popular marketing tool, the 310’s 24-degree transom deadrise is the real deal. Marketing director David Glenn recently delivered a 310 to a new owner in the Bahamas. The trip included a single day’s run of 185 miles from Fort Pierce, Florida, to Chub Cay, Bahamas. On the first 83-mile leg, Glenn crossed the Gulf Stream to West End, averaging about 28 knots in seas of two to four feet and 15-knot winds — typical crossing weather. After clearing customs he pushed on to Chub, holding his speed in beam seas of four to six feet. Including the break in West End for paperwork, the trip took nine hours.
