Default SL44 ( Aluminum Prototype) Running Pic

Here is a pic from Havasu ,will have more when I can resize them as the cd I have the pics are 4-5 mg. The boat ran great a few bugs but not anything serious. It would cruise at 100 mph at 5200 rpm which really suprized me. The certified weight with no fuel is 7450 lbs for a 44 ft boat with a 42 ft hull fully rigged. Started having more transome lift over 100 mph that I wanted so am working with arneson on it and will be at his shop next week to correct. Was using Merc 4 blade labbe by Bronson Hill 28 x 16.25 , tried a pair of 29's but lifted the transome evem more. Made a mess of the bildge as I had not tigned a couple lines but no damage except my pride. Wii post some more pics soon. Thanks Wayne

AWESOME!


You have to be pleased with 100 MPH at 5200 in my opinion.

Good luck and keep us posted on the final results as you dail her in.

We got a good running shot of that boat as we passed you

It was good talking to you before you launched. I'll be up at Riks shop to pick up some props this Friday so I might see you there.
