Default Konrad Conversion 1 of 2!

Currently finishing the first of two Konrad conversions.
We are the authorized installation and service center for Konrad in South Florida, and thrilled to be working with such a professional and technically advanced company. Konrad's testing facility ensures their products do as they say, and they are all a pleasure to do business with! Kurt has been especially helpful, stopping by while in Florida for the Sarasota Poker Run.
This project is a 42 Sonic, here are some photo's, more to follow in the next few days, with details of Water Test. The boat was running XR type drives, with his 720 HP Twin
INNOVATION motors, we re-rigged with Konrad 540's with Standoff boxes for the BAM Transmissions.

Yes, and we shall see. Sonics are pretty bow heavy, maybe some additional stern-weight will be good. We will provide run details, before and after..

I'm interested to see how the cog change will affect how the boat runs.
Will be standing by.
