OK lets wait. There are some needed changes. The boat has lots of potential. Rome was not built in a day.

I agree with thisistank and rik that there is much more potential in this boat. I also really want to give the builder the benefit of the doubt as they are first class and employed the advice of Tres Martin.
My observation - and I'm no naval architect - is that the boat was running very wet with approx. 38-40' in the water and water breaking just behind the stem and above the forward strake; this with tabs up and drives trimmed correctly (a fair rooster tale). The boat did not seem at all loose/free although Tres and Tim said it felt free in the cockpit. -Jeff

It looks like you slipped a post in front of me Tres, I wholeheartedly agree with you; you seem to have the appropriate professional demeanor and knowledge. Congratulations on a great boat. -Jeff

Just curious if anyone knows why you would go with Cam driven alternators? I would think that would put more stress on the cam and gears? Just currious.

Man I love the looks of this boat!!!! Reminds me a lot of the Phantoms.

I am not real technical with rigging but looking at the picture the drives seem really low. The boat looks awesome and is something that is definitly different. I hope to see some really good numbers once it gets dialed in. Good job liquid!

I wondered the same thing........When i was putting a gear drive on my 540 everybody pounded me for the harmonics issue...................That is one bad piece

1.) The alternator sure looked tight and clean, and I guess that the harmonics do play into torsional cam loading/unloading; maybe its less pronounced at the relatively low rpms run by this boat. 2.)Yes the drives are likely still a bit low - one of the reasons there is so much potential left. I look forward to seeing this boat up in Portland again. -Jeff
