I would think this boat should run faster. I have a friend with an '02 (500's)and the speedo said low 80's, but maybe his speedo is way off Now that I think of it, he didn't really pull me and I am 71-73 depending on conditions. If I don't have a good chop, the resin bucket is a pig

1997 36' Apache w/525 SC's and Bravo's. 26p Bravo's(in bad shape)

I have a set of 26p 6 blade Herrings borrowed, but I haven't hit the water this year. I can't wait to get in the water to see if I can spin them or not, but they sure are pretty

Are you guys sending GPS pics of the boat in the water under it's own power or taking icks while behind the tow truck?

I think we need to see some water in these pics.
