Thanks for the compliments, looking forward to the KW PR. Jeff

Pic has alot of masking on it yet, will post more next week when finished.
Second day of testing boat 2 yesterday. They got 101 with 34P props on the 700s.

When are you heading for your test run on the boat. Mine will go back to the factory next month for a few updates. I think I am going to have them add a generator.

Those are great numbers especially out of twinns for that size boat. Great job Sunsation.. ...As to the test run not sure but need to run through it at least once before we leave for the PR. Those gen. sets will knock at least 2 mph off your top end. Thats good for me cause your getting down closer to my end. What else an we add that you need this winter. Jeff

That boat is drop dead gorgeous. Paint and cockpit McLeod seats look great and how the graphics on the sunpad wrap around, again, alot of detail. Jeff

Phantom,

Yes, I live in Sunland, so just across the valley from you. I think that would be a lot of fun, but I think I'll be visiting my daughters in Sacramento that weekend. Which weekend?
