Awsome. I had a chance to see one of these boats in Toronto last winter at the boat show. And as far as the glass work is concerned, very streight, very smooth. Great looking boat!

-100% stock 525, from merc just droped in.
-1.35 Gears, ITS, 2" shorty sportmaster
-30 lab Bravo
-about 5300 rpm.

Boat is NO flyweight, motor is still too low. Look for more from Marks boat, it is very impressive.

This boat's approach is to be more like a giant Alison. It is a pad bottom, no steps. All surfaces are balsa cored and bagged. The front has no cabin, just carpet.
I like the idea of running stock power and make the boat develop the speed. It is certainly a smaller market, it is not practicile for the family over nighting or anything.
It is a stock 525efi on an ITS. In hind sight I should have gone with a stand off box for more set-back, would have been better. I have not weighed the completed boat, but it should be about 3,500lbs.

Airpacker; I don't think your drive shaft will reach because of the ITS.
