I agree on the exhaust, we normally have custom tail pipes made but the customer wanted it this way.

As far as the Bravos go, they will last a bit longer than you are thinking as these boats are very light. The other 34' Doug Wright that was done at Grant's Custom Rigging with Bravos had well over 30 hard driven hours on it and is running great.

We could play with the gear ratio's in the drives and get more speed but as it sits right now the boat has outstanding acceleration.

I don't know if they are going on now, he changed his mind once we held them up to the side of the boat. I'm not 100% sure if they are using any of the small ones on the interior or not either, the boat is leaving to have the interior completed sometime this week. I'll definetly send you some pictures if the decals go on.

We never received a 38' here at Grant's Custom Rigging however we did finish the 43' which is basically a 38' with a bustle on the back for the Arneson surface drives and rudder.
