Thanks, David.... I am 100% happy with how well it turned out. Cigarette has came a long way since Skip took it over. No matter what people say, he's done one heck of a good job putting the team together.

I figure I'll try one more thing re: prop testing, but it looks like we have it proped pretty well for good "all around" use. It comes on plane like a monster and accellerates to WOT pulling hard the whole way.

There's more there, but it's looking like in order to get it we'd have to compromise and/or give up some bottom end (out of the hole) pull to make it happen.

I've decided to leave the boat in SFL for a while. It won't be heading home until after the Sarasota run the last week of March.

Thanks for the pics!

Wild and I ran the boats back from Govt. to Everglades that afternoon. Needless to say it was ruffff. Our wives didn't like it, but we had a blast!

It was all I could do to keep the boat under 50 MPH. I'd hit 52-53, the boat would come up, the blowers started to sing, and as my friend said, "she wanted to eat".

I just figured out which boat was yours.... Yes, I'm a little bit slow sometimes.

That's one beautiful Powerplay you have! Everyone commented on it as we passed by.
