I don't call Harry, I drive down the street and walk in his office. Especially now with the big project.

The standing line is "I am off to see the wizard"

Did you get your voice back yet? Call me next week.

Yes I was on board. He did NOT whip a hard azz turn. He simply turned the boat around and headed back in the opposite direction.
(If that was a whipped 180* turn, then AT's have problems turning)
Yes, I would have felt fine turning my boat like that - it was just a turn. I have turned my boat much tighter. Did I think the AT boat was skittish? I think "loose" would be my description. My 28' Powerquest felt skittish.

That is impressive!!!!!
Now I am curious, what changes are made? For example, Macklin said his boat was built w/o a cabin liner, thus the boat is 700lbs lighter. In that instance, what did Harry tell you to change to keep the boat balanced?
Do other manufacturers do this?

Pat, voice is back, I'll call ya next week.

On my last Midnight I was running the bullets of the nose cones (Bob's low water pick ups) even with the bottom of the boat. (No pad on old Midnight) Even higher than shown in pict when I added brackets to outers.

Now that my new Midnight has a pad, can I run the drives even higher?? And other than the obvious water pressure what negative effects will it have?

Thanks

I don't see a pad. I see a notched transom. Which still should alow you to raise the drives a little. How much? I have no idea.

Good question...I should have asked that when I bought my POS single step TG...but, what the hell, It's a Cig, the best boat ever built

Jeff,
These pics look familiar?
I believe the dash is from your AT. The other is Thunder Dan's boat.

Back to the thread. . . . . .
