Default Liquid Technologies (New Production Boat )

The Proto Type boat has been retired and our new SL44 production boat is started .Again it is 100% Aluminum. We have retained Tres Martin as a consultant on this , with his vast knowledge of bottom step design and handling theory we are incorperating all the latest in step technology and handling into this boat .We want the safest and best handling boat to offer our customers.We learned a lot on the prototype . I will post a few pics as we build it . The boat will make its first apearance at the Power Boat Mag tests at Parker Az in April 07 and will be at Desert Storm PokerRun at Havasu April 27-30 2007.

Thanks Wayne

Looks cool but how do you keep it from getting dented around the docks?

what was done to the prototype boat? is it being scrapped? if so why? if it has any short comings, can't it be cut and rewelded to make what ever changes are needed? it was a sweet looking boat, rm

The prototype for now will be set up in front of the shop for advertising we might rework it later on and of course it had short comings I never thought we could get it perfect the first time out but we were close. The challanges were when running over 100 mph slower it was fine and in really rough water 3-4 ft chop it was fine it was the smooth water we were having challanges with vacum on. The new steps will be all fully ventalated along with any area that can form a vacum under the boat including the transom. We also needed to go to 1/2 " windshields so had to rework the frame to accomadate it just in case someone stuffed the boat. I also needed to lower the bow so there was better visability when running at slower speeds. Had no challanges with dents in the boat and I ran it all summer in some real crowded places and had to ramp up with a lot of boats many times.

Thanks Wayne
