That boat is vinyl, but the headliner is whatever you want it to be. Its a custom boat. If you want pink ostrich and albino leopard skin, just say the word.

There's no doubt I'd rather buy a custom boat than a production boat any day of the week. I don't even care if it's faster/slower!

In addition and hypothetically speaking, if everything else was equal in comparing two or more boats for purchase consideration, top speed may be the deciding factor. There are certainly MANY other things that should and need to be considered, but as guys go, we all like to have a fast boat and hate it when our buddies boat is faster. Personally, I think value, handling and customer service after the sale are more important than the top number, as the top number can always be manipulated with prop & gear, but will usually suffer in day to day functionality in relation to customary boating habits.

Beautiful boat!!! The colors are really cool and different. I am just wondering why they are not running the big #6 style props? I would think it would make the boat handle even better. Just a thought. Like I said beautiful boat!

First props on the boat, and George is still dialing it in. He'll get some sweet numbers out of it.

We tested a set Merc. Hi-Perf made for us. Better top-end speeds, no doubt, however much longer time to plane off as you would expect. Also you just don't feel as 'connected'. You have to drive the boat a little more.

The easiest, most user friendly props were the Maximus but they ran slower. None the less it is the prop of choice for over all. You can run mid 90s all day long and hardly have to do a thing but pay attention.

Although pricey, these 6-blades are expected to meet somewhere in the middle. We've been working with Julie at T/U to see if these are the ticket for the NXT drives.
