Yeah, I know.... getting old is a b!tch. We decided to grab a bite at the Islamorada Fish Company, hit Hard Rock for a couple after-dinner-drinks and home by midnight, as we were flying out the next day (remember the last time I had to head out early after a long night, or should I say morning, at Slims... didn't want to duplicate that. My liver is still aching!).

On another note, I decided to pass on the deal we were discussing last week. Not sure why.... but, it just doesn't feel right at the moment.

See you in two weeks, bro!

Joe

P.S. No sharing stories about our drunken nights at Slims with my wife ---- she still thinks you're a nice guy! haha....

I will say this.... It's looking like it's going to be right in line w/ my last boat and be one of the fastest 39 600 TG's out there!

Not bad for the first hour on the boat:

I get the about the same speed w/ my '02 TG. The 575SCi's now have 600 hp ea, so I am getting the same or a tad more speed.
Nice sweet azz ride!! Congrats!!!!

I gotta agree, Joe your Cig is the best! Those warm up speed are awesome. I bet that once you get all the mechanicals lose and broke in with the correct water and weather you will see 100 no probelm.

Thanks FeverMike,

For the record... The boat will, unfortunatly, NEVER exceed 99.4 MPH (for insurance reasons!) I'm not even risking tweaking it to run 99.5!

....Right, John P.!

I knew one was coming... I just didn't know when! Thanks for saving it for me

P.S. I think you are right.... but we'll see. There's one prop shop that thinks they can give 99 MPH a run for the money -----

I always hate the, "Well... my boat is going to run XXXXX MPH after I finish with it" comments. So, I'll hold all comments.

94mph in a Merc "stock powered" boat is pretty dam respectable. It does become a game of when is enough enough.

Nevvvvvvvverrrrrrrrrrr!

Seriously, knowing the boat is still tight, and that it will loosen up, picking up another MPH or so is more than enough for me with this pkg.

If we wind up getting more out of it (w/ other props), it'll be even better --- but not expected. The boat runs very well across the spectrum on the Maximus 5's. The B1 34's just don't do the trick on this configuration.
