Thanks all. we definately were catching plenty of airtime!
The photos were taken by a professional who just happened to be at Mckinley marina. He came right over to us and said that he had been there for hours waiting to take some pictures, but no one was going out into to the big stuff. asked if we would go out so he could get some photos and of course we said we would . He took about 300 pictures and we met with him last night. These were just a few of them, the rest will be coming this week. Thought you fellow OSO'ers would enjoy them. Lake Michigan can get real rough with swells coming at you from everywhere. Sure had a great time..........LT & Kathy

Lookin' good LT. I wish I had water like that to drive in. LOTO is the roughest my boat has seen The 26P 6 blades on mine are working well. They have VERY little slip. MId-range is awesome, and I picked up 1 or 2 on the top end at 300 less rpm. They will trim them for free to get the extra rpm back and maybe more speed, but I'll let the new owner make that decision. I'm only spinning 4900 right now, so it will be safer for the motors. They also look pretty cool

Thanks for sharing the pic's

Hey Panther, I built them myself, 540 cubic inch, 650 horse. They run awesome, top end around 80-81.

Warparty----What power are you running in yours? By the way, The 6 blades look awesome. Kathy has always loved the paint job on your boat. I see you are selling it.....whoever buys it will be getting one he** of a boat......Take care...LT

Stock 525 SC's. They have been great and reliable.

70 to 72 top end , but as you know you can run top end in any conditions where some others have to back out of it Whoever buys it will be getting one he// of a boat. It's Sea Ray time for me
