Just got back from Florida today . We sea trialed the boat with the new drives. Boat got up on plane faster and the attitude was much better it carried the bow much easier. We don't have top speed numbers yet because of break-in procedures. We will be launching her again next weekend.But she's home right now.

NJ Sonic went out last weekend, still has not completed the break in time, but the boat sure performs great. Got right up on plane with a boatload of people, used to have to coax it up...still have to play with props.
Here are my initial observations....These conversions were done on two boats that couldn't keep from breaking their drives...Although I do not think we are going to see speed variances worth mentioning, (we are still playing with props on the 42, the weather where these boats are has not been cooperating..) I believe the stress free, uninterrupted boating trips are what is going to make these customers the happiest. The differences in the boat attitude, between the CG and the fact they are 8 more inches off the transom are Hugh with these two boats. I will update as soon as we are able to get final speed testing, so far, performance is better due to quicker planing, top speed TBD.

The 42 is running just about the same speed, better attitude and he could not be happier because he has had no drive failures! He is finally getting to go out and enjoy his Sonic any time he wants! One of the drive reservoirs does tend to want to overflow, Konrad is working on that.
The 38 Sonic is still prop testing, I will get an update shortly.
We are extremely happy with the products and people at Konrad. I cannot say enough about the product, it arrives professionally packaged, ready to install and performs flawlessly! Everyone at Konrad is easily accessible, knowledgeable, and Kurt has been great!
My team did a fantastic job on the refits, and are looking forward to the next one!
Back to you soon on the 38 speed results!
