The boat is off to the shipoff to Norway
26 Redline, I love these boats and am considering one if I'm insurable on a cat and can handle the budget for one.
Is there any hop at any speeds? Also, due to insurance/costs I'd be starting with an HO (with plans to up that later), with the right prop do you see any issues getting on plane quickly? The one tested in powerboat took a while, but it also ran a 94.5 or something with a 525.
She sounds hot and will get you the best price on insurance, tell her I told you to call
Thanks for the advice. Yeah, my plan is to start with the 496HO, and then do the Raylar 525 kit or supercharge once I have cat experience for insurance and more money for the upgrade.
A hop at 80 won't be a problem with an HO, and once I upgrade I should be able to drive through it then.
I'm guessing there's hurricane costs in your insurance. I at least get a 6 month layup to save money.
If I can swing a new boat the RPM will be it. I've seen some pics of the red and gray one they're building (I think it's Steve's boat, or is suppossed to be) with graphics very similar to yours, and it looks good. I'm normally a blue and silver guy, (really love your boat) but the red/black/gray is growing on me too as I've been seeing it on more boats lately it seems.
That dash on the orange boat looks phucking sweet!!
By the way I will be putting up another post of just how remarkable Steve and his guys are...stay tuned
Yeah, I've emailed him. I've been waiting to hear on a new job, which should make my boat budget just enough for one, but it's taking FOREVER despite being told in Feb the offer's coming. I guess that's to be expected in the auto industry right now.
At this point I'm thinking the summer up here will be over too soon, so if anything I'll have one built over the winter if I can swing the cost. I'm thinking all white exterior, with a pretty intricate vinyl wrap.
In the mean time I'll have to just enjoy the pics of your boat, so feel free to post away.
Never seen a cat with a anchor hanging off the swim step. Looks to be push button?
