If you had any idea how many rigging jobs that Bobby Saccenti has done, it would help you understand. Everybody can make a mistake, but sometimes I think he could do it sleep walking.

I like that #6 template Bobby is using for the layout. Is that something thats available or would that be a custom made piece. I have the Merc Bravo jig but always thought it was not inherently precise enough and thought a registered plate like the one he's using would be much better. Even though its a 6 plate, just wondered if there out there somewhere. Keep up the great work, should be another impressive build.

I guess that was up to the owner to race or pace and I don't think the boat was specced out for any of the classes. Besides, I think it did a better job selling new boats over at the Poker Run docks. ;-)
do you have orders for more boats? i sure hope to see more with the arneson set up!

That is an Ilmor jig by the way. Not the same as a #6 jig.

We were very impressed with the Ilmors and the performance combined with the weight savings helped make our choice for this build. This boat has very specific Art and Color flows, Ilmor also custom painted everything. Great group of People.
