And they were seeing 174 on the GPS.
There is a device, not sure what it is, that some of the boat put up on the bow to help the radar get a more accurate reading.

It's called a Radar DEFLECTOR, Callan and Bud Select run them, see the Callan pic above, it's on the port sponson, about 1/3 the way back from the bow. CRC was running very well! And the Callan GPS read 212 and climbing!!
