I think I saw that boat in Streeter, IL. Could it be the same one?

I know the motors are different from the ones that I saw.

Possibly Roger. I know it spent some time at Capt. Nabbers.

If it runs 90, those wieseldik 800's are underrated!!

We were out of the water yesterday, props out and all according to the other boat that was with us, but we didn't catch that on film unfortunately.

Not sure if I want to be out of the water that much, but I know Rob would love it!

Yeppers, Those 800's would have to be about 950's to hit 90 mph. Cabins REALLY slow down 41's. On the race 41's, Just filling the front fuel tanks, which are just forward of the helm will scrub off about 3 mph. You can imagine what a full cabin will do to top end speed.

When I had the 750NA's in it, I couldn't get past 76 on the GPS. If I could reach 90 with the 1000's on sixes, I'd be thrilled.
We have two sets of props, one of them labbed. The labbed props are awesome for our top end speed. Yesterday at 4000RPM we saw 66.7 on the GPS. Still experimenting in the rougher water. This is all new to us. And we're loving it!

No tricks to it- tabs level, drives out a touch, push on the sticks, mash waves.

The pleasure Apache is a much better wave-crusher than the race version. All that extra weight helps- that's your payback for the loss of top end.

And 3's don't like 950.

Congrats on your new boat! Those were my props and Matt and Julie at Throttle Up worked them and they were perfect. You have a great wave basher and those motors of Tommy's are very strong. Enjoy. NK
