Great looking boat, congrats. What kind of numbers are you getting out of it - does it have the original factory drives and X dim?

I've only been out once so far. Swells were about two feet (with some slightly bigger). I saw 73.7 at less than 4900 RPM with 26P Bravo One props.

I was running with 3 people (quite a bit of equip - incl a quick inflate Mercury tender) and 200 gallons of gas. The boat has standard Bravo drives and the factory x dimension has not been changed.

Let me say this though. Not only is this the first twin powered boat I have ever owned, the trip was the very first (twin powered) go fast boat ride I have ever been on. Although I use to hammer my blown 25 foot Eliminator, this is a new experience for me. The size and controls take some getting use to. As such, I was pretty cautious and didn't fully trim the boat out. I probably could have aired it out a little more and saw another 2-4 MPH.

i have a question for you in2 deep how did you post the pic so that it is a thumbnail instead of a full size pic like mine?
The pic is saved at that size on my computer. The file is named something else on my hard drive -- so I was interested to see how it was named a "thumbnail". ??

I appreciate the invite. Are you part of the group that Tank's with? If so, I emailed him yesterday and I will be joining your "convoy" Thursday morning. I live in Canyon Country (right off the 14 and Sand Canyon) and will drop onto the Freeway as you pass by.
Awesome boat Rick... Did you look at the 95 Fountain 35 in Thousand Oaks when you were looking? I'm on the hunt for a 90's Top Gun... Hey, H20.. where'd you get the awesome paint done?
If I were to get into this first one I need to paint, so it can come out something like the 2nd pic ... without the arch!.
PS I'm close to you guys also, Chatsworth.

Was the 95 in Thousand Oaks the one with pro-charged 502s and sitting at a used car lot? If so I talked to them. I thought the boat needed a little TLC. It also had upwards of 250 hours on the power. If I remember right, they wanted $79,950 and were not flexible on the dollars as well.

Hey Dan,

I eat breakfast with the family at Route 66 Sunday after church. Talked to George for quite some time (he's remodeling a portion of the out side patio). He mentioned how nice your boat was. Were going to have to hook up for a trip to catalina.

The boat was painted when i bought it but the truck was painted in Reseda at Abstract Fiberglass and they have been painting boats for years so they could do whatever you want and help you on the design. There number is 818 342 4814 the owner is Jason
