This was my last good run in it. My wife was in the boat for the first time in 2 years and finally wanted to go fast. Hard to tell from the video but it is hung out pretty well. Don't judge the choppy throttle. I found that quickly getting the nose back down kept it from getting out of shape, especially with a passenger you don't want to scare. I'll miss this one more than the 40'.

Just read over the whole thread. Love your work. I was hoping to bug you about buying it. Oh well. I would love to find a flat deck to do what you did.

There are a couple out there. I started with a pretty presentable boat (gel and glass) which saved me a lot of money over some of the options I see if I were to do another one. This boat didn't go anywhere. My dock neighbor bought it as a collectors item.
