I agree that it needs a 1" spacer instead of the 2" spacer. I went with the 2" to keep the thing safe and driveable until you got a little seat time in it. Let me know when you are ready and we can get the 1" spacer on the way. Be safe out there and enjoy it.

Thanks for the kind words.

Eddie,
Thanks for setting up a kick ass ride. We've been at Lake Cumberland since Saturday. We taught our 8 year old son how to waterski with the boat. We've been tubing and driving this thing all over. The motor is outstanding. This thing is turn key. After getting a little more seat time I agree this boat is a 100mph ride as is. I'm not sure I want to go any faster. Anyway job well done!

Rob, did you get your trim indicator working again? Glad the boat is working out for you. You've wanted a ride like this for a long time!

Thanks. Here are a few pictures of the boat from last week at Lake Cumberland. First time at Cumberland, the lake is gorgeous.

Yes I saw you as well, driving through some heavy rain. I hope you had better weather over the weekend. Nice looking boat!

Took the NSX out over the weekend. I found a drive height and prop that works great. The boat has an IMCO extension box. The prop shaft center is 1/2 inch above center sponson, prop is non-labbed 34 Bravo 1. Boat planes great, cruises effortlessly and gets to triple digits in short order. I love this boat!

Does your setup have any chine walk at top speed? Have you ran it thru the prop slip calculator? http://www.go-fast.com/Prop_Slip_Calculator.htm
