The guys might be bringing it up to Old Saybrook today for testing if the water isn't right in our area. Need to get a good basline reading on the flat stuff before running her in the open water. Understand the are throwing a pair of 28 bravo's on there for now, so we'll see. Needs a lot a break-in time though so not sure we'll get any #'s on it today.... but still very excited

Spoke to my dad last night...hadn't heard anything and he wants to give the guys at Rage time to do their thing. I'm sure we'll have an update after this weekend. At this point, there is no reason to rush anything, guys at Rage will get it dialed in.

Took it out today for the first time was a bit rough about 3 to 4s with an occasional 5 we are real happy with how it ran in the ruff water. She flew nice and level was able to run mid 70s at cruise speed.Were going to watch the winds and wave height and go out again tomorrow or sat if its a little calmer.We thought the 28 bravo 4 blade would be a little big but the boat planed right off and had excellant acceleration.We will shoot for a top speed next time out. t[ATTACH=CONFIG]530703[/ATTACH]

Wow Congrats. The boat turned out great. Spent some time on a 27 O/B and it was one of my favorite boats of all time. Can't wait to hear some more good news.
