Looks great .I had a 27 Excalibur and with a bravo and a 540 I ran 88. I set the X dimension at 19 should have went a inch higher. Boat looks great congrats .
Here's a video of mine I miss that boat! I like the flat deck better then the speedster which I had and the fact that it is a sit down .good luck with it

I used a lot of your notes to get my setup. Did you have a standard lower? I went with 19.5X and a -1 lower. It looks like yours had some more leverage. I have referred to your build several times when saying how consistent the setup is. 2 30+ yr old boats with very similar setups and nearly identical results. Pretty cool!
