Boat ran great again today. We put some smaller diameter props on and is handled much much better. The acceleration is incredible. We didn't go over 5200 RPMs. It hits 130 very fast. Here are some pictures of the boat. We painter the edge around tha canopies chemeleon. The interior is "partiially in", (that's another story in it's own). I purchased some custom hatch scoops, then I had them lenthened by 4" and widend by 4". I think they made the boat.

Finally figured how to set knots to MPH. Does anyne know if differant model Gps's have differant response times? It seems it takes my Navman a while to catch up with the boats speed. By the time we're slowing down it's still climbing on the GPS.

Congratulations on great job.
Fred, I couldn't have had it look as nice withut you. Gauges, steering wheel, trim swiches, tab switches, tabs (not installed yet), plus 50 other items all came from Trick marine. I actually think it was because of me he hired james and put the phone system in!
