This was the first 700 boat and the customer was biting at the bit he didn't want to wait 2 more weeks for the new props to come in so he would rather be boating then have no boat. The props that are coming are 38s herings, Remeber the drives are baby 6# drives and if you change the gears you will change the way the boat runs, she will be slower on take off. Hering does make 38s and the way the boat runs, gets on plane, and thows a rooster tail 3 stories high without feeling any slip is ok by me.This boat was running with 220 Gallons of fuel and we didn't open her up and she was at 104. Donzi ran the boat and when I recieved her the GPS Tatle tale was at 110. The thing that surprised me was the attitude this boat ran for a 38 over 100 was flawless. No chine, no walk just straight and strong. The 700s has a 1 year waranty complete just like the 525s.
I don't think you would be able to get a 700 in a 22 Classic with the size of the drive.

Tom,

Thanks. I ran her for a while last night but then it had to go and get dark on me.

I'll be out playing all weekend. If you're around give me a call on my cell and we'll hook up for lunch or something.

Mike

5200 RPMS we had her up to 5000 and ran out of room with the boat traffic yesterday with only slight trim on the drives

someone here said that merc was having trouble toasting NXT1 drives behind the 700.....true? BTW, that is the perfect setup for a 38ft boat. Shoot a small video of her running and post it if you can.

Georgeous boat....I'm a bit confused with the picture of the GPS at 105 mph with one engine off, one at 600rpm and shadows on the deck like the boat is still at the dock; my GPS tends to read close to 0 under these conditions - what up? - Jeff
