Default CC30 Project

As you can see mine needs ALOT of work. Had to rip out all of the rot first and then a bit more for safety. Filled with two sheets of marine plywood and secured with ARJAY/ cloth and resin. Tomorrow (weather permitting) im going to finish glassing the transom and then
i will move on to the bulkhead(wall behind back seats) and then finally the stringer. I am anxious to see how your boat performs with the Verados. Please let us know once you have had a chance to run her .

Looking good! Getting started is half the battle!

Did first sea trial few days ago. Super smooth. All all systems working well except for a bad connection on the starboard trim actuator. Easy fix but made trimming nearly lol

72 mph at 4950 rpm. Neutral trim. 28 bravos spinning in. 6% slip. Propshafts were nearly 3 inches UNDER the bottom. 100 gallons of fuel. 600 lb load. Starts porpoise at about 65...seemed like it tarted to settle at about 72 ...that's as far as I pushed it.

Propshafts been raised 3.5 inches now at .5 inches Above the bottom. This should make a drastic difference in performance and handling. Possible up to 10 mph according to comparison. But will see what happens next time out . Also not sure the bravos are my best option...going to try some hydtomotives and some outboard over hub choppers and cleavers .

Default First sea trial

WOW!!!!!!!

For 1st time out those are amazing results, based on those numbers i don't see why you wouldn't hit 85 mph !!! With my verados i know they rev til at least 6200 so you have at least 1000 RPM left on the engines. Also
you need to be able to play with the trim, i can tell you on my other boat (i know V bottom is a different animal ) 313 Chris Craft Stinger Twin Verado 300 outboards, it LOVES trim. The engine height is crucial as well, i got lucky on my
313 that height was perfect first time out. That boat does 69-70 mph with a T-Top, 150 gallons of fuel, 4 people. I have a feeling that once you sort it out, she is
gonna be at least 10 -15 mph faster. Thanks for your post, gives me great hopes !!!!!
