Keep dialing it in... I'll have my order placed by 2009!(after I've saved a bit after my home renovation) But I'd like the pricing we've discussed.
My wife's been bugging me to death to take her to NYC. This could work !!! Dave

And the drive is deep.

O.K. The first time Grant ran the boat with a 26P 4 Blade he hit the rev limiter at 75 mph.

Second time out, Grant ran a 28P 4 Blade and hit the rev limiter again.......at 81 MPH !!!! At 3000 rpm she was running 42 mph and at 4000 rpm she ran 58-60.

I just sent a shorty drive down and we are going to run a 30P 4 Blade and will see speeds in the mid to high 80's !!!! We honsetly think the boat will run 85-88 mph. Not bad for a stock 496HO/XR that you can get a 5 year warranty on !!!

The boat is running unbelievable and wants to run faster. There you have the update. I have been trying to keep this in the last few weeks but it got leaked out a week or so ago. I'm picking the boat up next week and will finish dialing it in and then pic's, stat's, etc... will be posted. Dave
Just wondering what makes the difference in that boat that gives it this kind of performance out of a stock??? 496HO. Everyone I know with a wide range of boats from Fountain to Nordic with that motor set-up is lucky to push 70MPH and can't even come close to the rev-limiter with a 26 pitch.

I'm not here to bullsh*t anyone. What it is is what it is. We new the hull was fast with the SVL boats. We did not know what the boat would do without the canopy but we figured it would do 80 with the 496. Two years ago I said it would do 80 with this power. I was wrong....it goes beyond 80 !!! Mark and I were surprised at this also to be honest. When Grant called up and told us the speed numbers we couldn't beleive it either. Anyone who knows me ,knows that I am a straight shooter. No bullsh*t and honest. I don't push people and do not knock people either. Proof is on the way and if you don't want to beleive it, that's fine. Dave

I'm not trying to say your numbers are not correct, just trying to find the difference thats all. Thats a big increase over almost every other boat on the market with that kind of power set-up. Is the boat that much lighter?? Hull that much better??? 29 footer with that kind of speeds something has to give.

More will be released on this in time. When I see the "sarcastic eye roll" to me it's like calling me a liar. I will post spec's and pic's in the future. We have worked REALLY hard on this boat from the building to the promo's and I take everything about this boat personal. Dave
