I never understand or can comprehend the stories of people never getting their custom boats , etc. I put all my money up front and them sell them for less than I put in them. I can't imagine somebody actually giving me money to build them a boat.

Boat was set up by OL and it was one of their cover boats with the underside and engine room painted a mirror finish to match the outside of the boat..... It's a Legacy...not a gtx. I'd say his name but he likes to keep his personal life private..... The boat has been unused and sitting in a shop for over the past 5+ years.

The owner told me it would run as fast as you're saying but when we put the pegs to the wood with him throttling and me driving I only saw 105 on the GPS @ 6300 rpms. But it did run a steady 95 mph at 4500 rpms.... We ran the ocean from the tip of Sandy Hook, all the way to Asbury park @ 95 mph, its was pretty fun!

Not bashing the boat, just saying what I saw on the GPS... Other than that it was a fantastic ride.

Yea the non-epoxy OL's have a very solid ride at speed. It sounds like somethings off if you were running 95 at 4500 and then only 105 at 6300!! Oh well. Too bad its just been sitting in the shop for 5 plus years. Just a guess is it the Pass Blocker boat or schools in session?? I think both are in Jersey and havnt seen them in a while.

Neither one of those boats...

I'm dating myself now but I think it was a 2001 or 2002 model... I can't remember exactly... Unfortunately I don't have any pictures. He hardley used it the first season then never used it after that and moved onto a cat... It's a shame to see it sit there but I guess it must be nice to be able to have multiple boats sitting around collecting dust and not worrying about resale value etc... lol It is really an awesome boat!
