    live wire, I ran with you that November day, I thought for sure you had a Blue motor in that bow rider of yours. The numbers were real good that day in the cool air and choppy water. I got 83 gps out of my tank and Jimmy's Sutphen ran 95 or 96 . I know you were running a real mid 70's cause I had to keep the hammer down to stay in front of you. That day was a lot of fun. See ya on the river in the spring. Do the hyd. steering and Raylar, I bet you will break the 80 mark for less than 10k.

The average of the two direction pass (73.8 GPS) was the fastest I've seen with this boat.Typically the boat will run 72mph which I've seen in several different conditions.Bottom line is it is a fast boat for what it is a single 28' bowrider .
    Yes, Sunsation really hit the mark with the new hull. To be able to run those speeds on a black motor that you can get 5 - 6 years or warranty on is amazing. I've driven an '03 (the first MCOB produced, actually) and an '04. Both had 375HP 496 MAGs and both ran low 60's at LOTO in the summer. Keep us posted on your upgrades (pics, results once the season gets here).
