Absolutely awesome! You really gotta be happy with how good your first sea trail went. I know mine went really good also but I sorta took it for granted. Boat looks awesome and happy to see you get her in the water!

boat came out very nice with the o/b conversion
believe the platform and standard gearcases down deeper in the water is a good set up for the baha
baha is a full pleasure boat and bit heavier than some other brands of hulls
if tried to run sportys with motors on the surface would probably have a harder time getting on a plane
and more slippage at lower cruising speeds wanting to come off plane
did nice job on the conversion and good results 1rst time out

Yep. I may try my 25p Rev 4s bc they should have more bow lift than the rev 4 XPs.
It’s running really flat and I dont get any bow rise trimming up.

If they work, I can bend them down to get my rpms at 6300ish. If not, I may just cut some barrel off the 23.5 Rev 4 XP and add some cup..

According to my resaarch the XP props are good for stepped hulls and lifts the stern and have less cup.

If you’re running it at 1/2 tank, you may be ok prop wise

That thing looks killer man. Hopefully I'll catch a glimpse some point this summer. If you ever see a Sonic Prowler around the Eden isles area, it's me

Are you on Pebble Beach? I thought I saw a Sonic headed back to a friend in the Inlets.

The 33OL is only 7500 dry with the inboards. Probably under 7000 now with the O/bs.

Cav plate was 2-3” out the water and still need to finish sea trialing to jack up and see what slip and overall handling does.

There’s always inside rotation to get it to gain more bow lift…. it’s not as easy to do as it is on a bravo tho

I tried the 25p Rev 4 and seemed to move the bow around. I kept getting an exhaust overheat shutdown. Come to find out the water hose going to the exhaust came off.

I’ll try the Rev 4 XP again and adjust as needed. I’ll probaly adjust the 25p as well.

I am definitely not turning IN. I tried that before and it was sloppy and reverse sucked. Now im 6” closer together.

I also definitely need some seat time once I get the bugs out the motors.

Trim is a lil weird…. I marked where neutral was and it seems to not take much trim before porpoising at low speeds (below 45) but I normally run 50+.
