I hope it's not the guy I am thinking about in the red dodge... If so, gooood luck with it...

Beautiful boat, sounded awesome when you guys came into Monty's Saturday.. Sorry, we were having a fishing tournament and blocked the docks... I was going to come over and say hi..

I have been following the boat for awhile, it is on my lunchtime tour pretty regularly.

I am two buildings north of Extreme.. If you have a moment stop by and ask for Scott

We have to do a lot of different prop testing, install the tabs and I need to order a big tunnel tab from Fred. I was hoping to see mid 140's from the looks of it, that is not going to be a problem at all. We may have to raise our target speed, this one is going to be too easy! I will take some pictures tomorrow and post them tomorrow night. Anyone know how to change the knots to MPH on a Navman 5600??
Gino, Lots of luck, very very Hotttttt !
